Will this never end?

Yesterday I was involved in 17 house move related phone calls and achieved nothing at all. Our vendor is now galvanized into action; our solicitor and the estate agent are working hard to get things sorted; and we are all spinning our wheels because it appears that the solicitor our vendor chose is basically rubbish - from our point of view, never having directly communicated with her - she is both inept and lazy. Every time I talk to our solicitor or the estate agent I hear the same thing - I've left messages with the other solicitor and she hasn't returned my call. She knows that her client wants this pushing through asap but apparently doesn't see that as a reason to do, you know, her job. HER JOB!!! We're not asking her for a kidney for God's sake, but I think it would be no more difficult to get one out of her than to get her to send a damned email.
Even now this could all fall apart because we can't complete in time.


  1. All my friends who have bought homes say the same thing. It's madness to go through but it all works out in the end. I hope it's the case for you. Hang in there!

  2. When we bought this house we were in a contact race so I ended up phoning the solicitor daily till they just wanted rid of me so finally the did what was required.
