Hi, We are looking at a property where the owner has recently deceased and the daughter or family has taken over. Inside the contract, it states that: PORBATE This contract is subject to an conditional upon the vendors obtaining a grant of probate in the estate of xxx. In the even that the vendors have not obtained a grant of probate within 6 months form the date hereof or within such other time or times as the parties agree, then either party shall be entitled to rescind this agreement by writing to the other. I'm a bit hesitant since this means that they can pretty much void the contract within 6 months while they take out 10% deposit and we would have to pay Land Tax after 3 months! Has anyone came across this and how did you handle it?
