What is a broken chain?

A ‘broken chain’ is a term no buyer or seller wants to hear. It’s that frustrating moment when a property transaction falls through because one party in the chain of buyers and sellers pulls out, causing the entire chain to collapse. This can delay or even derail your moving plans, leaving you scrambling for alternatives. 

What is the impact of a broken chain?

The impact of a broken chain in property transactions can be deeply frustrating and financially taxing for all involved. It disrupts the meticulously planned process, causing significant delays, unexpected costs, and a whole lot of stress.

For sellers, it can mean returning to square one, re-listing the property, and enduring additional viewings. For buyers, it might result in losing their dream home, or incurring costs from surveyors and solicitors for a house they won’t buy. 

The ripple effect can extend to moving plans, school starts, and even job changes. It’s a situation that underlines the importance of communication, patience, and strategic decision-making during property transactions.

Alternative ways to deal with a broken chain

Other ways to sell your inherited property include using an estate agent or putting it up for sale at auction. Both of these methods have their advantages and disadvantages, and it’s important to be well-informed before making a decision. 

One option to deal with a broken chain is to agree on a reduced sale price with your buyer. This could incentivise them to proceed with the purchase, even if their own sale has fallen through, by freeing up additional funds or making the property more attractive to a new mortgage lender. 

Another strategy is to consider renting while you sell. This could involve moving into a rental property and becoming a ‘chain-free’ seller, which can be more appealing to buyers. Alternatively, you could rent out your property, providing a source of income while you await a sale. Both strategies require careful consideration but can offer solutions to the problem of a broken chain.
