One week ago, we put in an offer on a property with the auctioneer. The property is currently vacant (the owners have died). They had no family between them and the proceeds of the sale is going to the church!We rang the auctioneer today ( he said he would ring us two days ago and didn't) and he told us that our offer is the highest but he wants a few more weeks to view the house. When i asked him was our offer rejected, and he said that he didn't tell the estates solicitor about it.Surely, our offer should be accepted or rejected? I don't want to be strung along for weeks in limbo so we will be ringing the auctioneer on Monday to say that we need an answer by Wednesday. We have bought houses before and I've never been treated like this by an auctioneer before - what do ye think?
