ChocolateLime:  I feel your pain! We are in the process of buying a place and it has been one thing after the other. Started with copper pipe being stolen and a pipe being blocked so the kitchen flooded. Then there was a sewerage pipe issue (turned out to be a municipal issue that wasn’t on the property). Now the seller has put up razor wire (without informing us) and moved someone into the home (without informing us – if there is a rental agreement we legally have to take it over so we hoping it’s just a friend housesitting). We moving in in just over a month if transfer hasn’t happened yet, hoping it will be before then…

Just hang in there, it’s rough but it’ll be worth it. Can you guys not find a place to rent short term so you can proceed with the sale so long?

Ugh, being in a chain sucks. I second PP… could you rent for a few months? It would allow you to be the end of the chain, which might increase your bargaining power?

ChocolateLime:  Hope this one works out for you guys… It must be super frustrating… It’s bad enough for me and we don’t have kids…
