    I am a first time buyer and recently viewed a house, put bid in and accepted. I then went to solictors and morgage advisors. Everything been sorted/paid 5% deposit. I now find the people who we are buying from are all sorted too but the house they are buying from have split up and he wants to tell but she doesn’t. I’m not sure who owns house. How long would it take to get they keys? Anyone else been through same?

    Hi there,

    Congrats on buying your first property. Unfortunately, when it comes to being stuck in a chain like this, it's all dependent on the people you're buying from - if they are willing to wait around for their sellers to come to an arrangement, or if they need to look for a new property. If this is the case, you may be stuck waiting for longer than you anticipated. If you're very lucky, your sellers may be willing to move out and rent to get you into the property, but as is often the case with chains, you are dependent on the next person in line.

    Hopefully it will be resolved and you'll be in your property soon!
