Waited for over 5 weeks for Vimala to sort out the mortgage, which never finalised. I did not find out whether the mortgage accepted or not. The offer was accepted 31 Oct 12.
Spoke directly with my bank regarding the Mortgage on 07 Dec 12. They (the bank) advised that they already told the Financial / mortage advisor (Vimala) at Brown and Merry whether my mortgage was accepted or not, yet Brown and Merry have not passed these details to the solicitors.
I had already signed the contract and the solicitors had received it by 30 Nov 12.
Darren from Brown and Merry then calls me (03 Dec) to tell me a "NEW OFFER" of £1000 more has been put forward. Yet they do not publish the new offer.
