You may have heard that all legal completions happen on a Friday, but this is not always the case. It is a popular day, but choosing a Friday might not be ideal for you.
If there was a delay in your funds being transferred, for instance, because solicitors don’t work on weekends, you won’t be able to complete until the next working day. The last Friday in a month is the peak day for transfers, so might be a day you want to avoid as there’s more chance of there being a delay.
If you did have to wait until the Monday to move in, how could this affect you? If you had a removals lorry filled with your belongings ready to go and no home to move into, would you have somewhere to stay for two days? These are questions you should ask yourself before you commit to a Friday moving day.
