                                          Dead Parrot Game 1 and Micknail Game 2 I think.
                                          Neither had the shambolic UK but those with UK were let down by the second team.
                                          We should hold the money in trust for Micknail until he turns 21.

                                                D'oh, I forgot about posting Lena before the votes. Amazing what a break of a year does to the mind.
                                                Will rectify next year hopefully.

Like say if we get approval and are going to be making bids all over the place hoping some work out - is that just us making the bids, or should it be done through a solicitor who acts on our behalf? I've heard conflicting views, so not really sure.

Like say if we get approval and are going to be making bids all over the place hoping some work out - is that just us making the bids, or should it be done through a solicitor who acts on our behalf? I've heard conflicting views, so not really sure.

There will always be underbidders etc. so basically it's about making sure they know you are a legit bidder with no chain and mortgage approval in principle Hitch. Then it's about offers and counter offers. Very little poker to be played imo.

                                                                                              Bidding in the countryside where there may not be as many under bidders and vendors are prepared/expecting to wait a little longer before selling etc. it's important to perhaps set the tone that you could lose interest and go looking elsewhere....definitely more games to be played....

                                                                                                                  Make a chart of bid histories. You will see trends and sweet spots and get a feel for optimum bidding increments.
