Jumping the gun

The champagne is still in the fridge. We got a call yesterday to say exchange had not happened because the solicitors had not managed to contact each other. It should happen today, they said.

This morning Rick spoke to the solicitor who said we are waiting for a deposit to go through the banking system. It should be done in banking hours today, so we may exchange on Monday. Where did that come from? What deposit?

Meanwhile, we need to rent somewhere and letting agents do not look too kindly on people who have not yet exchanged - not when there are plenty people out there who have, and who want the same property as you.

Am I just a worrier, or what? We have to have moved out by three weeks today. And we have nowhere to go.
