AWOL

Sorry I haven't been around for some time. We were into the final stages of completion on our new house, we should have been moving this weekend. Yes, that's right, should have been. Unfortunately the surveys and reports came back a couple of days ago. Only a couple of minor hiccups. Firstly there is mineworkings planned in the next year or so under the house, secondly it is built on a flood plain and has been flooded twice in the last ten years, they forgot to mention that little detail, and lastly it's built on landfill. Needless to say we have pulled out.

So we are back to househunting big time, as our lease on this house is running out soon. So I'm sorry but I will probably be out of action for some time to come. Just another week in St Jude's household.

What a pain - you have my sympathies and best wishes. Hope you find something soon

Nikki said...

I'm so terribly sorry. What an absolute headache for you.

I wish you luck with your hunt.

Pete said...

that's a right GIT !! Hope you get it sorted.

Pendullum said...

I am so sorry for the house troubles...
But am so glad that you found out about the troubles before you signed on the dotted line...
I will be thinking of you and will be waiting here for your return...

Kate said...

Oh dear, that house sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. I'm sorry you had such a disappointment. Good luck finding somewhere more suitable (and safer)!

Chris Pittock said...

Not good news. However, it's a very good thing you discovered these things before signing on the dotted line. If this 'miner' details had overlooked, I suppect it would have been a financial disater further down the line.

Yes the pun was intended.

I hope you have better luck with your house hunting this time.

I can't believe they left that out. I'm glad that you found out sooner rather than later. Although, you still kind of found out later though, didn't you? Anyway, those asswipes.

Good luck!!!

kim said...

Ohhh St Jude! Im sooo sorry! Just a minor little detail or two ...the asses!

some people are just picky picky picky!

Beki said...

House moving is a pain in the bum, isn't it!

Hope you are finding time to chill out through all this!

Attila The Mom said...

Good grief! Why in the world wasn't any of this disclosed up front?

Hope you find a good one soon!

Cherrypie said...

Are you sure you aren't one of my clients? I thought it was only mine that had that sort of luck.

Actually, in 18 years of conveyancing, I've never come across a bad mining search result yet, so that really was bad luck, Jude.

That house clearly was not the right one for you. x

Attila The Mom said...

Hellooooooo....

Is there anybody in there?

xoxox

Kevin Charnas said...

When are you coming back? Are you okay? :) I certainly hope so...

Nikki said...

Kim said...

Good God, when it rains it pours, eh? Glad you found out about all of that before it was too late. Hope to see you soon Sainty.
