So is it a good idea to rent in between moving home, to be chain-free?
Moving home is said to be the third most stressful thing you can do, so if you can do anything to reduce that stress, so much the better? When buying your next Farnham home, being chain-free can certainly reduce your stress and offers many advantages over other buyers (and some disadvantages).
So, what is a chain? A property chain is made when there is a line of home buyers and home sellers linked through their property transactions e.g. a Farnham first-time buyer purchases a property, the sellers of that property then buy another property, and those sellers then buy another property, so on and so forth. Each home sale and purchase are reliant upon the success of every property in the so called ‘chain’. This means if there is one hiccup on one of the properties, every sale and purchase along the whole chain would collapse. No wonder everyone is on tenterhooks when there is a long chain involved.
