Broken Chain who foots the bill?
Unfortunately the system we have in the U.K if you’re in the process of buying a property and selling one at the same time but can’t complete on the one you are buying unless the one you own sells this is called a chain.
If somebody within the chain changes their mind or has a change of circumstance or pulls out, the chain will collapse. You are then left with costs you have incurred, survey costs and aborted solicitors fees.
More About Broken Chain
This isn’t uncommon and happens on a regular basis, there isn’t any way to recover your fees from the person you are buying from or selling to if they decide to change their minds which creates a broken chain.
There are insurances available to protect you from these costs but to take out this cover isn’t cheap. There are a few solicitors out there who offer a no sale no fee agreement so you won’t be stuck with abortive costs.
Broken Chain Continued
If you’re selling and the buyer drops out, keep solicitors and everyone in the chain informed while you search for another buyer. Consider lowering your asking price too, particularly if the price hovers near one of the Stamp Duty thresholds.
Find out why someone in the chain has pulled out – if it’s a money issue, it’s possible for everyone in the chain to agree to a reduced sale price. It’s a long shot, but it has been known to pay off in the past.

Great company to deal with, with no hidden fees and transparent service!
Would highly recommend!
A special thank you to Chris who helped and informed me every step of the way.
Happy with the service offered, did what they said they would and on time, would use again.
Really good service. Was struggling to sell my property gave them a call and all dealt with efficiently. I’d been in touch with a couple of other companies however home house buyers were by far the best.
A very good and understanding company, when purchasing my house they were very professional. Mr Daxs is a very good man, an asset to the company. All in all I was very happy with this company.
Very good company to dealing with. Good communication between from themselves to the client. I would be happy to deal with them again if ever needed.
Fast and efficient service. Will definitely use again!

Can’t recommend these guys enough. The whole process of selling my property was smooth and professional, nothing was to much for Chris who’s customer service was fantastic. I’ll be using these guys again.
Chris, was very helpful and talked through the whole process competently and clearly, without feeling pressured into a decision. Highly recommend.
Chris was excellent to deal with and very helpful. His communication was excellent and I’d definitely use him again.
