When looking to buy a home, there are so many considerations; location, size, budgets, décor… the list can be endless. One option which may not be top of the list, but can be a real benefit, is when a property is available with no onward chain complications.

This can be a real plus for anyone looking to move quickly, or would simply like a smoother process. No chain scenarios can come about for a number of reasons, and don’t always mean that the property is empty. Whilst a chain is often unavoidable, a chain-free sale is often quicker, poses less risks and can be a benefit for buyers of your home too (creating a shorter chain for all involved).

Currently, we have over 21 properties on our register with no onward chains, and have picked just a few to highlight the options available across the area.
