This is another great option if you would like to move quickly. This may be due to a change in health or simply because you just can’t wait to start enjoying a new lifestyle. We can offer you the opportunity to move in and rent your chosen property with the expectation that you will complete within 6 months; at which point the money spent on the rental period will be offered back to you as cashback towards the purchase of your new home.

Accommodation While You Move
