    Delay in purchase completion 15th Sep 17 at 7:03 AM
    Morning all

    Our house sale completes today but our purchase (from a relative) is not due to complete until 6 October which is we don't mind as we're able to move in with my parents. We have asked our solicitor to keep all the funds from our sale ready for our purchase. Searches are back and mortgage offer in place but will the delay between our house sale and purchase affect our mortgage offer at all which is due to expire at the end of November?

    Why should your sale have any impact at all on an unrelated purchase?

    As long as you Complete the purchase before the mortgage offer expires, and have the funds to pay your seller, there's no issue.

    I assume you've sorted storage for your furniture/possessions?
