  1. Hi, I didn't go through with this purchase. I made an offer of £118k coupled with a target 28-day completion. However, that wasn't enough for the seller to agree to. They eventually put it on the market and achieved £132k. Not a deal, but I've learnt a few things in the process: Discuss purchase price earlier rather than later. It will save a lot of your time.

The seller has indicated that they are looking to achieve £125k. The latest house to sell on the same street was £7.5k below the current asking price, but I cannot find any detail
  4. Hi everybody, I thought I’d write this to introduce myself and also to provide me with a little bit of motivation, as I expect this community will be great at holding me accountable for my goals. I’m currently in the middle of a live-in refurbishment with my wife and 2yo daughter. We’ve been hit by some tough times over the past three years since we moved in, so nothing has really gone to plan. I’ve been doing most of the work myself-I’m a civil engineering project manager by day and a DIY dad by day-off/evening/occasional weekend. It’s been hard balancing work, dadding, husbanding a
