  • brookelea replied to the topic What was YOUR upbringing Like? in the forum General Property 16 years, 2 months ago

    yes,  i read the contract today – it also gave a time frame of 4 weeks..  the house has only been on the market for a day!!  i'm afraid that my parents might be in for a rude shock..pinknic, it sounds very odd to me too.. 

  • brookelea replied to the topic subject to visa? in the forum Legal & Accounting 16 years, 3 months ago
