Is this normal? Buyer holding things up.
We have a buyer for our house and we have had an offer accepted on the house we are buying, everything is ready to exchange on the purchase (no onward chain), however we found out yesterday that our buyer (who is a cash investment buyer) has not even paid his solicitors their initial fee or had searches started, they have said that they wanted to have survey done first and check that before anything else. I am now panicking and feeling a bit helpless as we had hoped to complete by end of June. I am wondering if this is normal? It all just seems to be a bit odd, because our house we are selling is a new build only 6 years old, so I'm not sure why our buyer is so concerned about the survey and why he hasn't at least told his solicitors to start searches. Any help appreciated. Thanks
