If I sell my house, how long before I have to move?

Selling a house can be a lengthy procedure, on the other hand, time can fly by when fulfilling all the tasks involved. Amidst the factors that need to be taken into consideration when carrying out the sale of the house, it can be easy to get delayed with securing a plan of what you will be doing after the sale. 

Whether you’ve got the ball rolling with your house sale and are panicked about what the next steps are, or you’re planning to sell your house and simply want to be prepared for the unexpected, we’ve got you covered. Keep on reading to find out more about exactly how long you will have to move once your house is sold.

The period between exchange and completion is always mutually agreed between all parties; the length of time can vary but is usually 1 – 3 weeks. This gives all parties enough time to organise themselves once they know they are legally bound after exchanging contracts. Ideally, when discussing the gap between exchange and completion, make sure to be honest to yourself about how long it may take you to secure new arrangements in order to make the process easier for both you and the buyer.

In a venture as big as selling a house, it is important to be prepared. We recommend ideally having a moving plan made up before selling your house. This will allow things to go much smoother and will help you avoid unnecessary stress. It goes without saying that the buyer of your property will not want to have their move-in day delayed because you have not arranged suitable arrangements for yourself, this could result in them becoming frustrated and taking legal action. Because of this, it is in your best interest to secure living arrangements ahead of completion. 

Sometimes life can get in the way and you may need to sell your house fast. If you have left things last minute, and don’t have a new place to stay, you can try asking friends and family for help, or go down the short term renting route whilst you secure something more permanent.
