Re: Just did an offer

well he accepted (informal) last week the day I went on holiday.
Only to find out that now he decides hes no longer selling

Im really upset with this as I find this unacceptable. After the time and money I have put behind this so far, let alone the emotions....

Good heavens that is terrible news! He has broken a verbal contract. You can claim compensation, or negotiate a further deal.

This is really terrible. Could not imagine what it feels like. Think positive, sometimes things happen for a reason. Hopefully you didn't burn any bridges. Good luck.

Re: Just did an offer

Sorry to hear this, I hope you didn't quit you day job.

Just out of interest, does anyone know if there is such a thing as Promissory Estoppel in Switzerland?

Re: Just did an offer

Sorry to hear this, Anthony.

This happened to me, albeit with a residential property. After negotiation, signing a Vorverkauf notice, paying a deposit, paying an architect to do an inspection, arranging financing, and a lot more running around - at the last minute one of the sellers (it was a group of heirs to their parent's estate) decided that he could not part with the sacred family ground after all.

I've heard similar tales of woe from friends.

It's a horrible thing to be strung along like that, but the sad fact is that it is a seller's market these days - and sellers seem to be able to do as they please.

I hope you find another - better - property soon. Thumbs pressed that you do.
