Setback No.1

Just had a major blow… The landlord of our preferred premises has not accepted our offer on the lease. He thinks it’s too ‘high risk’ for him and that we’ll go bust within the first year, being unable to pay the rent. He could have told us sooner… That’s five weeks we’ve wasted, waiting for his answer. No matter. Think positive, and fall back to plan B. Yes, we did have one! It may have done us some good really …

All stood still

Well, this is frustrating. We put an offer in for the lease on a premises over four weeks ago. The landlord insisted he saw business plan (what qualifies him to assess it anyway?), which we gave him over two weeks ago. I phoned the estate agent yesterday to see if they’d any news , but still nothing. We’d hoped to be open before Christmas, but with the weeks evaporating away, this goal is rapidly sliding from our grasp.
