Completion date is agreed prior to exchange, if no completion date has been agreed then you won't be exchanging.
If the property has been on the market for ages and there weren't any other interested parties, you could try and leverage an earlier completion date. However, does depend how desperate the vendor is to sell.
The earliest it usually takes from offer being accepted to completion is 6-8 weeks. That's if all the stars align and if there are no huge issues that need to be resolved from your survey/surveyor. Nevertheless, mid to late January would definitely be a push, especially with the Christmas and New Year break approaching. February would be more realistic if you manage on an agreed completion date.

Anyone come across ‘The Modern Auction’ way of buying a property?
Seems like a bonkers way of buying a property.

Doing an extension and loft. My lender won’t do a further advance as they are cunts. Broker I use has me 100k (on a second charge) but with 9% cost. Anyone know if any other options ? I’m half salary half bonus so might not be good for all lenders but 9% seems v high even if I’m going to flip it
