Thanks for your question.
If your daughter is over 18 years of age,does not have a formal tenancy agreement (or other form of agreement giving her a right to occupy in exchange for money) and did not contribute to the financing of your purchase of the property or payment of the mortgage then she has no legal right prevent the sale of the property.
The purchaser's solicitors will ask her to sign the contract of sale for the property as she is an occupier over 18 years of age. If you do not anticipate that she will do this then it would be better for her to seek alternative accommodation at your urging prior to the conveyancing process so that you can answer honestly that there are no other occupiers of the property.
