  • Hi, Chain free means that there is no upward chain so that the seller of the property is not needing to look for a different property to buy / rent before they move out meaning your move in date is entirely up to yourself.

  • Hi eem2am, Chain free, as mentioned above, basically means that there is no need for you to wait for the person you are buying from to find another home to move into, which of course always has a danger of failing and falling through. No chain can mean, among other things, that a home is being sold after someone has passed away, or someone is moving in with a partner or their family. It is basically there in order to show you that the process of buying will be far less complicated for you. Many thanks, Scott
