In English property law, verbal arrangements count for nothing. We rented our current house for a year from August 2014. Two weeks ago we agreed with the owner to take the house for at least another year. He agreed. This week he has come back and said he is selling the house to a family and so , with nothing in writing, we are out, as from 20th August.
The search is on for another house. Yesterday we drove out to view a property in Easingwold, a lovely, small market town, close to the North Yorkshire Moors.
|Good lunch spot|
Easingwold could be an excellent choice for me, a nice house, good surroundings good walking, but not so good for B as it is some 20 miles from the University campus where she works and a little awkward for the stables. We shall see.
After lunch we went back to York Cityscreen to see the new Jurassic Park film, in 3D. Not a great work of cinematic art but very enjoyable.
Tomorrow I am going on the trip to the Maginot Line in Northern France, 05.30 start from York railway station. Back Friday.
