1. I know that if the buyer isn't given the 10 day cooling off period, then they can change their mind at any time, even years after the sale - I read somewhere about a buyer who changed their mind after 10 years and their case was upheld in court. :shock:
So, yes, it's possible, but....
2. Yes
3. No
I think Ally and I will have to share the euro :lol:

If you want a chance of winning you might want to try again.

I thought it was a trick question for those in the trade. It's one of these things that you become "expert" on while it matters then it fades into the mist with all the rest. I was looking for a photocopy of my birth certificate a few weeks ago and I dug out the house buying file. Jings, crivvens, help ma boab. It seemed so simple back in the day.

Three questions which ones are True or false.
All of them - the answers are either true or false, which is what your question asked.

I hate to play the Critical Parent role but the correct answer is "True" as they are all questions. That said, the author did fail to make use of any question marks - perhaps in an attempt to fool the participants. :oops:
