Quick Turnaround

So today we heard back from the estate agent at the Moon Poverty location today and as expected we didn’t get the location.

However this morning I had arranged a viewing of another property and by this afternoon we’d reached a loose arrangement with the landlord and have recieved the heads of lease, with our insertion date set for next week. I was shocked and enthused by this as it took us a month of correspondance to get to this point in the previous property. The difference; no solicitors.

I don’t have anything against my solicitor but I do dislike the overly expensive, time consuming bureaucracy that goes in to it. It took 2 weeks to exchange information due to all the bodies it had to go through and everything had to be done through letters; this time it was 2 e-mails and a phone call all the same day.

Legalities exist for the protection of both parties but so long as nobody plays silly buggers they shouldn’t be necessary.

where is the property?

Tis in Kinning Park, literally 2 minutes from the M8, 10 minutes from the flat and 3 minutes from the nearest underground. Not a good location for people to casually find but very easy and convenient for people to find when they’ve had directions.
