    Patsy - If that woman still wants to buy the house again, then ask your solicitor to draft an agreement to the house sale, at whatever price you agree, imposing a non-refundable deposit from the outset. OK, it's unusual, but it would flush her out. Then, if she wants to pull out, at least you are not out of pocket and have some financial compensation. If your house has been surveyed, at least you know where any issues lie, as that would be about her only get out clause, if the house were to have significant unknown defects later picked up on survey. She may or may not agree to it, but it gives you at least a modicum of security.

    When I bought this house the vendor was a nightmare, so I do empathise with you. It's a horrible time.

    Did you sell it on the strength of work in progress being completed? Or do you mean the whole kerfuffle of actually moving? All the best whatever you decide
