Buying and selling a home is a complicated process that involves a huge amount of legal wrangling and long periods of time waiting around for other parties to do their part. Even when everything goes to plan, the process is often an inconvenient struggle. And, of course, sometimes things don’t turn out quite like we expect.
The Broken Chain
Usually when people are selling a house, they are also buying a house. This creates a long chain of buyers and sellers that you could be in the middle of when you are buying and selling your home. Like all complicated processes, there are manifold things that can go wrong in the house buying/selling process, and when these problems arise then it can “break the chain” and send repercussions rippling down to people who aren’t directly involved in the failed transaction.
For example, if you are selling a house and the buyer of your old home pulls out of the transaction, then you may have to pull out of the house you are purchasing. This causes problems for the seller of that property, and so on. If you’ve ever been involved in buying or selling a property before, you’ll be unsurprised to learn that this is an exceptionally common problem. There are just so many things that can go wrong and break the chain.
A Nightmare Scenario
Occasionally, chain breaking could lead to a situation where you’ve already exchanged contracts on your old house but the transaction where you are purchasing your new house has fallen through. This means that your old house has been sold but you’ve got nowhere to go. Most people can stay with family, friends or in a hotel for a little while until they’ve completed a purchase of a new property, but finding a temporary home for all of their possessions is a little bit trickier. Fortunately, Simply Storage is here to help. Our favourable terms mean that we are the best Manchester storage solution for people who have been caught in a broken property chain.
