Where a Purchaser wishes to sell his current property when buying another property, make sure to note this in both Offers to Purchase (where the Purchaser is buying and where the Purchaser is selling).

This will ensure that all parties involved in both transactions are aware and understand that the two transactions must run concurrently and must register simultaneously in the Deeds Office.

This will undoubtedly assist in occupation dates being properly aligned.
