- Etiquette for pooing in someone's letter box?
Long story cut short. We’re buying a house and due to exchange tomorrow, with all parties having agreed long ago to a specific completion date. We’ve served notice (as we’re temporarily renting) and have to be out the day after completion. This evening I get a call saying the vendor that our vendor is buying from now want to move out 4 weeks later. WTF?
We’ve a young family and can’t change our moving out date as notice has been served and another family are already scheduled to move in. So we are royally pi55ed off, as are our vendors.
EAs have already spoken and applied pressure but without any change of heart. Ok, technically these people can do as they wish as Exchange hasn’t happened, but FFS it’s out of order. Am going to speak with our vendor tomorrow (thankfully we get on) as they’re happy to chase solicitors to get things back as they were.
Anyone experienced this? Any tips?
If nothing comes of it then I will give serious consideration to delivering a poo through the letterbox of the vendor’s vendor.Posted 5 years agomtbfixSubscriber
We had a similar issue with the vendors wanting to delay completion when we bought last year. My suggestion is that you let the solicitors sort it out. No matter how well you get on with your vendor this is a process that happens within a legal framework and sorting out the ball aches is what you are paying the solicitors for.Posted 5 years agoSpinMember
Are your bumcheeks in the regular configuration i.e. perpendicular to the average letter box?
If so then you will need to consider a method of achieving an adequate seal with said letter box. Alternatively you could explore ways of bringing your cleft into alignment with the target.Posted 5 years ago
A quick search brought this up, so maybe it could be traced back to you if you consented to an anal swab
Can you get DNA from poop?
Yes, there is DNA in “poop”. During excretion, cells from the lining of the rectum tend to slough off and there is DNA in these cells. In addition, fecal matter has a large amount of bacteria in it. The bacteria of course have DNA as well.

But us reducing the price of one’s months rent is going to hit our vendor. And I don’t see them trying to pass that on to their vendor.
I see your logic though. Trouble is, we’re being hit worse than the vendor in the middle yet we have no relationship with those causing the problem.Posted 5 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
Happened on last move. Ended up with a bag of clothes and living with the in laws for a month. Challenging getting two adults and a baby in a room barely big enough for a single bed….
Also, I’ve been on the receiving end of a last minute price chip. Agents got everyone in the chain to share the pain, so cost to us wasn’t all that. Mind you, that was back in the days of a liquid market….
(I favour a wide selection of “deposit” (human, animal) and a black widow catapult so you can apply to those hard to reach places.)Posted 5 years agoCountZeroMember

I would also poo in a bag and push it through and open it out to reduce the risk of splash back!
Well, ‘splash-back’, or ‘blow-back’, could be an issue, but a few beers and a nice big curry, and you could possibly manage to re-decorate the entire entrance hall or lounge, depending on where the front door opens into.Posted 5 years ago
Just a thought… 😈
Some of you fellas seem to have too much
experienceknowledge of scat attacks 🙂
so let me understand.. you havent even exhcanged contracts yet but you ve given notice on your rented accomodation?
you do know theres nothing to stop any or all partys changing thier minds?
Yes, we know that. But the date of completion has been agreed for weeks. We’ve given notice for this very reason, i.e out of trust … which in hindsight doesn’t appear so wise seeing as the vendor’s vendor decided on the day before exchange to completely move the goalposts.Posted 5 years agowwaswasSubscriber
Sorry about your situation but my experience of house moves is that if there isn’t a signature on a piece of paper saying something’s going to happen then it’s not going to happen.
Last house we bought our vendor assured us there was ‘no chain’. After 2 months of wrangling it turned out what they meant was ‘the person we’re buying from isn’t using an estate agent for the house they’re purchasing but there are two people further on from them that are’.
As above, get your stuff in storage, find a monthly rental apartment and try and get your vendor to adjust their price to reflect the costs (although don;t hold out much hope).Posted 5 years ago
