Most home purchases are part of a chain of other purchases. If your property is not ready for the next buyer to move into because you have been delayed in moving out, you could be held liable for the excess costs incurred by the other parties. To prevent a situation like this, liaise with your solicitor or your buyer/seller to agree on a time to vacate the premises. Make sure that your removal company is fully aware of the scope of your move by asking them to conduct a site survey. Ensure that they understand what time you need be out of your property to prevent a situation where your buyers are waiting outside your door ready to move in but your removal crew is only halfway done getting you out.
