We are excited to let you know that we have now found the property, and our offer has been accepted! We need to raise £675,000 by Friday, 20th October 2017 in order to complete the purchase.
Dear Samatha Friends,
Unfortunately, we have just heard that our purchase offer for the house in 15 Bradwell Road, Milton Keynes, has not been accepted.
We are very disappointed. Eleven of us had visited the property and thought it was the right one.
We were up against a competing offer. Ours was the higher of the two, and we had made a good personal contact with the vendors.
But in the end, the time delay required to resolve a ‘change of use’ process with the Milton Keynes Council planning permission department before being able to proceed to Completion put them off.
The search continues. We are likely to encounter the same problem if we are competing against other buyers who do not need a ‘change of use’ application, especially within urban areas such as Milton Keynes. It may be that we have to find access to a different type of vendor and property, or another way of addressing the change of use process.
We will keep you informed.
All the best
Paul B, Fran, Vijay, Amber, Charles, Dave, Rachael, Gwil, Paul D, Rakesh, Imdad
