Hi Frank – you forgot a fourth and important category of those not completing. They are those who simply do not feel comfortable with completing on an illegal property. And until a LFO is issued, that is what a property is. Recent news re. demolitions have no doubt compounded these feelings.
I appreciate there are some who take the ‘win a few, lose a few’ attitude, but there are those in the Autumn years of their life or with their total life savings who simply wanted a worry-free holiday or permanent or retirement place, and completing on something that is illegal is just not an option they want to take. And indeed, if that is their decision – why should they.
