    The buyers are looking to progress chain free as their sale won't go through fast enough due to a long chain. Not our style though to shaft people

Being able to walk to the Pub, shop etc. to join up with mates is definitely an advantage my Father & Mother in law have fully enjoyed (pre lockdown). Keeping them off the road is also good at their age.

      They both had large family homes but one moved ~25 years after and the other moved ~5 years before to smaller village locations.

      Rip your CDs or subscribe to a service it saves a lot of space.
      CDs and dvds ripped years ago and all on a monster SSD drive

      Saying that though, pretty much all music is available free on YouTube these days via the TV so I rarely even play these CDs unless in the car.

                Good for you, because tricks like that can bite you in the a*se. The house we bought last year was just one of two. The other buyer, two weeks before exchange demanded a 20K reduction, the builder refused and told the buyer to think carefully before pulling out. The buyer was adamant and pulled out. He phoned up the next day to say he would pay full price. "Too late" said the builder, "already resold it". Then the buyer said he would buy one on the next phase but the builder told him he didn't have a chance and he wouldn't deal with him again! Then his wife phones up in tears claiming she knew nothing about it! Wouldn't like to be him if that's true!

                  I would say that selling the house is a good idea - too big, just (bad) memories. But I would be renting rather than buying unless Whorty is moving back to a flat he already owns.

                    Is it true that your wife asked you before she died that if you get remarried your new wife would use old wife's golf clubs - you said no because she is left handed?
