I've only owned 2 houses in the 3 years I've been playing UO, and both of them I got from a friend, so were already existing. I've never actually placed a house myself, and the new 18x18 plot I'm looking at has brought up some questions that I'm having a bit of trouble finding definitive answers to so thought someone here might be able to help. I'm looking at a possible castle plot, so it's kind of urgent that I get some solid answers fast! I'm sure you all understand. 1. I seem to recall reading somewhere that if you place a house on an account that already has a house, it puts the old house into a demolition pending mode which lasts for 7 days. Is this correct? I basically have a week after I place the new house to move everything from the old? 2. What if the old house has vendors on it? Does that extend the demolition pending period and if so, for how long? 3. Does the same character that shows as the owner of the old house have to be the one that places the new? 4. When do I get the refund from the value of the old house? Is it when it falls, or when I place the new house? 5. I'm wanting to test the spot I'm looking at to make sure the house is "properly placed" and will fit the size I want. If I place the new house, causing the old to go into demolition mode, then drop the new house, do I need to manually refresh the old, or does it do it on it's own? I'll probably think of more as I work on this, but these are the ones that are most important at this point in the planning stage. Thanks for the help!
