That sucks. Is your solicitor chasing them for you? Can you stay somewhere for a shot time while you wait for the sellers? Was there a formal agreement for an mid July move?

 

Hoping things improve for you.

Really tough, sounds like you have a good solicitor though, hopfully they will be able to make contact and get things moving again. If not then I hope you parents will be able to have you for a while. Far from ideal I know. We are house hunting at the moment and the thought of having to stay with parents terrifies us. We love both lots and want to keep it that way!

Good luck.

Can you start charging them a per diem after they stay in past the specified date?

We had a similar situation happen to us last summer.  We got an accepted offer in May, then in June they did some work on the house to fulfill the offer.  In July we were suposse to get our inspection, but two hours before the inspection the seller called my Dad (our realtor) about possibly having to back out of the sale.  In the end it turned out that they were having trouble getting a loan for a new house because of bad credit.  Eventaully their realtor helped them to get a new loan.  The terms of our loan ended before the closing date, and we were able to negotiate with our lendor to get it extended (for a daily fee).  And finally in mid-August we closed on our house.  And two days later DH had to help move the d-bags out of the house and into their new house.  

Despite all of the stress, hair-pulling and name-calling, it all worked out in the end.  I really hope your sale does as well.  I don’t know why house sales have to be so complicated.  You wanted to sell your house, you put it on the market, then when you find someone who wants your house you get all flaky?  Also, I’m not sure what country you are in, but I would ask your bank or lender about extending your loan terms (for a fee, which your should charge to the sellers if possible!)

That’s great news.  I’m glad everything worked out!
