  • Hello pretty, a chain is when there are several people buying and selling ie you are buying your first home and the people selling it are buying another home. These people can't move out of their home until their new home is vacant, meaning you cant move in to your new home until they vacate. This is a chain!! So No Chain is when the property is either already vacant so you can move straight in, or if the people selling aren't dependant on their new home becoming vacant to move, hope this helps.

  • No Chain refers to the fact that the property owners are not needing to wait to purchase another property before they can move out and therefore move in dates are more flexible and the home is easier to sell.
