Sale pending, owner now wants to put feelers out to rent

Hi we are in the process of buying a property and are 2 weeks away from moving but not exchanged as yet. We found out yesterday the house we are buying is being advertised for rent and the agents are allowing viewings from Tuesday. Can they do this legally?

  • Hello Kevin - this is very strange behaviour. For a start, the estate agent would be in breach of any sales contract you may have signed. If the sale falls through, you may have a claim for any funds you have spent already (surveys, solicitor abortive costs). I would suggest speaking with the solicitor that is representing you, as he/she would be able to make the correct suggestions. Hopefully there´s just some simple confusion here and the situation will be resolved. Best of luck.
