We are often told of some strange things that happen when buyers move into a house that they have bought, but the latest one was something new to us at UK Bathrooms.
Apparently it all started when the buyers refused to pay the seller for the carpets that they intended to leave, for which they wanted £13,000 and were prepared to throw in the curtains and lighting fittings. They refused on the grounds that a price had been agreed and were told that it included those items and contracts had been exchanged. However, they were completely shocked when they arrived in their new home to find that the bath had been taken out! Now the sellers were at fault here and the law states that the price struck between buyer and selleris fixed on exchange of contracts, and cannot subsequently be changed by one party without the agreement of the other.
We are not sure what kind of bath they removed, but we are told that it was a Jacuzzi bath and if it was similar to the Phoenix Ancona Luxury Double Ended Bath that we feature in our luxury baths web page, we can fully understand how attached they may have become to the bath! The Phoenix Ancona is offered by us with a choice of three systems; a whirlpool with directional jets, jets for the back and feet and two air flow controls, or an air pool which features an on/off switch and Airspa jets. Alternatively you can have both systems.
Perhaps if the vendors had contacted us, we feel sure that with our unbeatable prices, we could have supplied them with a Jacuzzi bath, probably cheaper than it has cost them to remove and replace the bath they took form the house they were selling!
