Buyer threatening to withdraw by deadline.
Like the person in a similar situation, I made it very clear to my buyer that I would not be able to break the chain if they completed ahead of me. I made it clear to my solicitor that I was concerned that my buyer was at least two steps ahead of us in the process . I had to withdraw from my first choice of new home because of an adverse surveyors report. Tried & failed to get quotes for the remedial works needed so started to look for an alternative home to but. Met with my buyer to discuss the change in my position & to emphasise my commitment in moving forward with the sale of my home. Buyer agreed to wait but had already completed & broken the chain. Next thing I get an email via my solicitor with a deadline to complete by or the threat of withdrawal. There’s no forward chain on the new house I wish to buy but I’m feeling very stressed & concerned that even with that taken into consideration, I may not be able to guarantee completion within the deadline. I don’t want to lose the house I wish to buy or the buyer but feel like I’m over a barrel & very stressed as I can’t force the pace , other than my own part in things.
