Hi if any one can advise.. I am due to settle a house early next month. To settle it, I even sold my previous house to raise money for this purpose. Just recently, i received a call from my solicitor saying that the vendor requested for extension till end June for settlement as they have issue getting rid of the tenant. In my purchase contract, I stated clearly to buy the house with vacant possession. So the vendor should have been prepared for this ... I am very upset of this as I have emotionally and financially gotten ready to take over this new property next week. Also, I and my parents have long planned to oversee this settlement. We lived overseas currently and have booked plane ticket to go back to Melbourne just to get this done. With this delay, I have to rebook all the tickets.. Additionally, I have to pay some penalty/rebooking fee to the airline to do that. And I am not sure if I can get the time and date that I want as June is a peak periods for Asians to visit Australia due to their school vacation. What can I do to seek compensation in this? Or what are my rights in this instance. I really frustrated over this... Thanks.
