    It is perfectly possible legally to exchange and complete at the same time - there doesn't have to be a gap between the two. A gap can useful to finalize a date with a removal company but that wouldn't be a consideration if you are able to empty the house before then.

    hi Shabba
    having just gone through the selling of dad's house (he's living in a care home now), I'd recommend having exchange and completion as close as you possibly can - the house was sold to a first time buyer, so no chain, thank goodness - but I was so jumpy in the couple of weeks between exchange and completion as the house was empty and cleared and I feared something happening which would cause damage while the house was still dad's property
