I am under pressure to sell and I am panicking this will hold me back if I have to pay off the arrears first. Do I have to settle before - is this possible?

Do clarify with the lawyer conducting your Bexley conveyancing but it might be possible to agree for the arrears to be transferred to the buyers. The contractual price payable would be adjusted to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They would then pay the arrears once they are the owners.
