We are in a difficult situation and looking for advice from you people who helped us so many times in the past..
After an eventful year 2016 (got redundancy, finally got new job, had a baby etc etc) we put an offer to a property on 27 October 2016.. initially we were told that upper chain is short and sorted as the upper chain is moving to empty property. Sellers told us that they can complete first week of Jan. In Jan they said they can exchange by end of Jan. Then they said mid Feb and now they are saying end of Feb seems difficult. Meanwhile, when they once said they are ready to exchange with completion on mid feb we gave notice to our landlord and our last day with rented property is end of Feb.
If we start looking for another property to rent we are stuck for 4+2 months. If we go to airbnb can we tell sellers that our offer will go down by £2500 for delay of each month? or we can negotiate for £10k less straightaway to cover cost of hassles?
I understand situation is too peculiar or people might find me annoying asking silly situation. sorry about that..
Thanks a lot
