Is there a time limit between the exchange of contracts and completion? I understand it is usually a couple of weeks but are there any rules regarding timescale.
I have agreed a sale for my house and I intend to move into rented accommodation.
There was no point looking for rental property prior to the sale and at the moment there is nothing suitable.
The buyers will want to push for a quick turn around however it may take a while for me to find a suitable place.
Rather than risk the sale is it possible to agree to exchange of contracts and then leave the date of completion open, which of course could mean waiting months?
