Contract Reassignment

Our standard acceptability

Not Acceptable

Criteria definition:

Indicates if a Buy to Let lender is potentially able to accept the situation whereby the purchaser is looking to buy a new build property from a third party (not the builder/developer). An example of this is whereby a third party has secured the property off plan and exchanged contracts but has not completed. They then sell the contract to a new purchaser. This is known as 'contract reassignment'. Sometimes this is for a premium of the original purchase price and sometimes it is without a premium.
