Good luck Jude.
We had to sell mum's house in Portugal. She'd been trying to sell it for 2 years. We'd got to the point of suggesting she lowered the price and just rented in UK.
Unfortunately she died unexpectedly in December.
We lowered the price to such an extent that the new buyer had to pay a premium (something Portuguese I think).
We (my siblings & I) went over to Portugal in February to sign everything, and have a service for mum's friends.
The buyers saw the house in April. Everything was completed by June.
We had a family gathering 2 weeks ago, a sort of memorial service and for scattering mum's ashes where we knew she wanted to be buried..

Hello Maggie....
That is so sad, sorry to read this. But what a lovely thing to do and have a service for all her friends. Such a shame it all happened the way it did!! <3

We know how lucky we are, we hear more and more of houses taking such a long to time to sell and falling through....but ours is'nt sold yet!!

Take care

Good luck Jude with the move, and I hope the rest of the sale goes well ...I admit I was on tender hooks until that completion came through.

Just been to the house and had a good look all round, made loads of notes for things to be done...quite a few too but mostly cosmetic. The old boy had those awful tiles on all the walls and ceilings that are now a fire hazard, l think he used for warmth...OFF with them!!!!
Bathroom sink might need replacing, definately the cupboard thingie under sink, shower doors not sure until we use it, but to me water might escape. The 3 bedrooms have fitted furniture....yuck, its all coming out. 2 bedrooms will be knocked into one. The lounge wall that backs onto the kitchen wall........between the walls is a space that can be used as a passage way to the bedrooms and the old passage way extended out to make the 2 bedrooms even wider....are you with me?? at the moment in lounge there is a fire place with cupboards each side, that will all go to give us that passage.
We're hoping the w/machine and freezer will stay, we have a better freezer but its not always enough space. New fridge possibly needed.
D/G windows, one or 2 need sorting. All doors inside need updating/painting, they are all sliding, save space:)
Carpets through out needed and painting and decorating through out:)...gawd and curtain, although some of mine should fit .

Outside...round the back where washing line is, steps need repairing and concrete also, loads of shrubs need cutting back and the front garden needs clearing so Madoc has a grassy wee wee area %3B-%29

l think thats everything...thats enough for now
