* IMPORTANT POINT: Most home owners will use CHAIN FREE® (our offer of a Fall Back Price®) to secure their next house (recouping our 1% Fee) and will not need to take the Fall Back Price® because their Estate Agents had time to sell their old house.

You can’t wait to sell for your Asking Price and decide to take the Fall Back Price® (we need 5 days notice).

You instruct your solicitor to send us a Drawdown Notice (in this event we will re-instruct your Estate Agents to sell your house for a 1.5% Resale Fee).

IMPORTANT POINT: You pay off your mortgage with the Fall Back Price®, transfer your mortgage to the house you want to buy or apply for a new mortgage.
