Exchange of contracts is the point of no return, so I raise a  :toast: or two to your son.  How is your house hunting going, by the way. 0_0

Thanks girls. It is a weight off all our minds. @UttaRetch  we are giving ourselves a year to do everything necessary and are not putting the house on the market until this time 2019. As houses here can take forever to sell, we won't start looking ourselves until we have a definite offer.
Our son is going into a rented flat for 6 months until he sorts things out and then he will buy something else :)

Good for your son :toast:

If houses in your neck of the woods take forever to sell then shouldn't it be going on the market now?  Maybe for a bit more than you expect it to sell for, but that would leave room to reduce the price once you are nearer ready to go.

No, people would get fed up of seeing it on Rightmove / Zoopla and think there was something wrong with it  -<
