Bizarre Haviour From Fairview


Recommended Posts

Hi there

I made an offer on a new build flat advertised at 182k

My offer was 168k + parking (7500) + all fees paid for, first year maintenance etc

Now im not looking for advice on whether i should or shouldnt have bid.

Here's the strange thing. I submitted the offer over week and half ago. Ive paid a 1k reservation fee. I cannot get an answer from Fairview, either a yes or no. Just keep getting told directors are in regional meetings and cant look at the offer!

How bizarre is this?! Whats happening at Fairview?!

Thoughts?

I would guess they have gone bust and you have lost your "reservation fee"

WTF were you thinking paying a reservation fee? Its not as if anyone else is going to buy it.

Does that 'parking' include a free new car already in the space?

Obviously a troll. Who would pay £182k for a Fairview "Type C" Slavebox? Unless its next door to Buckingham Palace with views of herds of wilderbeast out of one window and the Golden Gate out of the other.

Offer was 168 to include the parking (which they value at 7.5k)

And obvs the reservation fee was put on a credit card

Sorry, i came here perhaps for some help / advice / insight - clearly not the site for that. Sorry for wasting your time

I suggest you buy the parking lot and not the flat, live there instead.....!

In your first post you said you were not looking for advice.......

THAT is THE craziest post I have seen in my 6 year on HPC......?????????

Are you serious?

Offers on new builds are -40% below asking - you are one hell of a gift horse to those builders.

Still if you like it and you can afford it... yada yada yada yada and you can afford to lose 50k then who are we to argue.

Next step - see a shrink.
