What to do if your house sale falls through

What to do if your house sale falls through

When it comes to selling your property, there’s very little worse than the sale falling through. Not only is it incredibly annoying, it can also put the purchase of your new dream home in jeopardy, as well as affecting a number of other people within the chain.

Of course, there are many legitimate reasons as to why a sale falls through, and while nobody wants to be on the receiving end of it, there are options for you.

It really isn’t an uncommon thing for a sale to fall through, particularly as offers in the UK are not legally binding, with sales only guaranteed once the contracts have been exchanged. 

If you have been on the unfortunate end of a sale falling through, then there are a number of ways in which you can make your next move…

Go Through An Estate Agent

Using an estate agent is the most traditional way of selling a home, and could well have been the method you were using before the sale fell through.

It can be an easy process, but you will incur a number of costs and fees which can mount up. It’s a service which you have to pay for, and there’s no guarantees you won’t suffer a similar fate with the next buyer who makes an offer.

Selling Privately

When a sale has fallen through, many take the decision to sell privately. It’s a method that means you don’t have to pay estate agent fees and one that puts the power back in your own hands. 

It can be a long and arduous process though, with you having to deal with every aspect of a sale. You have to be invested in the process from minute one and you need to be prepared to take on all the viewings, create listings, seek valuations and much, much more. If you have time and the motivation though, it can be a good option.
