Questions we get frequently about home sales falling through

We know it can be a stressful situation when a tentative sale doesn’t happen, so we’ve compiled a list of the three questions that we typically get about failed sales:

✅ If my sale falls through, can I try to find another buyer?

Yes. There’s nothing preventing you from trying to secure a new buyer for your house or flat as soon as an existing sale has fallen through. Just be wary when negotiating with the next buyer to avoid the problems that led to the prior sale not happening.

✅ My sale has fallen through, should I try a different approach to selling?

If you tried to sell with an estate agent and the sale collapsed, you could consider another option such as selling the house through auction or alternatively selling it to a trustworthy property buying company like LDN Properties for a quick cash sale.

✅ If the home sale falls through, is it typically the owner's fault?

No. The circumstances for each failed sale are unique, and in many instances it will be an issue at the buyer’s end such as not being able to secure a mortgage to complete the sale. However, sometimes the problem might be at the owner’s end.
