We won't be buying any time soon in Australia.  We have only just arrived in Perth (15th) and unfortunately the sale of our home in the UK was meant to complete on the 7th September but the client concerned of our buyer failed to complete and has now been served notice by our solicitor.  2 more dates were meant to have completed but each time failed again. If no completion has taken place by lunchtime on Monday then the contract will rescind and we will have to put our home back on the market.

We have been through hell these last few weeks and never, ever thought we would have to deal with this on top of moving abroad. There has been many tears, anger and frustration and we now face the prospect of having to reinstate our direct debits in the  UK just so we can pay for our home sitting empty, plus storage costs of our belongings in Perth.  Our dream of buying our first home in Australia is long gone, now we have a tough time ahead, having to wait until we are out of quarantine at the end of the month, to find work fir the both of us. On the upside, we have family we can stay with, but not for ever.

We are happy to be back in Australia,  but no excitement due to our home not completing.😭😭😭😭😭🎂

Good to hear that you finally got back but it definitely sucks about the house sale. Same thing happened  to us but we were selling dad's house. Took another 3 months for us but we renegotiated with the same buyer and took a huge hit. Just as well we did because dad died the week after we completed otherwise we would have been in all sorts of trouble with selling as executors and paying for things whilst it was empty etc etc. Hope it all goes through.
