The two Solicitors are playing 'ping pong' or 'chess', or whatever they call it - which isn't something that happens down in England - trying to agree the missives so that they can be signed and exchanged (or whatever the technical term in Scotland is. Our Solicitor did his bit, they came back with counter-suggestions, we wanted those amended slightly to put back in a couple of things their side had taken out, so it's now back in their hands. We're hoping that the final paperwork for the missives can be agreed by the end of next week - if not sooner. Our Solicitor seems to turn things around over-night, their's, unfortunately, seems a fair bit slower. However, I believe that everything is still on course - it had better be otherwise we're homeless after 21st April!!!
Hubby keeps telling me that I'm worrying unnecessarily and that I was expecting too much of the Scottish Conveyancing System - and he's probably correct :-) By nature I'm a realistic-pessimist or even a pessimistic-realist, but when I do allow this side of me to be overtaken by optimism, I sometimes get carried away - I was expecting to have 'exchanged' already.
