Hi, anyone know anything about buying houses etc...? Put a reservation fee down on a house with the intention of moving in when the build was due to finish around Aug/Sep. They now ring me saying that its being brought forward to July, good you may think, but I am in a rental agreement until Sep and cannot afford to pay both rent and mortgage. The longer I look at the property the worse the deal seems, so I am thinking of walking, now I am assuming I will lose my reservation fee......or do I? How legally binding are these? I have not exchanged contracts or anything, just paid the reservation fee and began choosing interiors etc......Anyone? Cheers!
