ALMOST a third of prospective property sales fell through in 2015, it has emerged.
Thousands of buyers and sellers were left disappointed after three in 10 sales collapsed.

Getting cold feet is more common in a booming market, according to home buying firm Quick Move Now.
In a further 27 per cent of cases, buyers were scared off by the results of a survey, while almost a tenth were due to difficulties raising the money.
