In a nutshell, there is nothing you can do.
There was no contract entered into for you to you to buy the house, and
therefore any costs that you incur, you have to take on the chin.
It is always a danger when exchanging and
completing on the same day that people can have removal vans etc booked, which
ultimately are simply not needed, but often have to be paid for.
The question is very common and I speak from
personal experience, because it happened to me a few years ago where the buyer
simply changed his mind after I had done survey and searches etc.
The question is very common and I'm afraid
that there is no remedy to assist you.
I appreciate that this is not the answer you
wanted, but there is no point in me misleading you
Can I help further?
Please bear with me today because I will be
