Is there a danger that we will be gazumped?


Gazumping happens when the 1st purchaser's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the seller, opting instead for another purchaser's offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as early as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.


Is a contract race fee a disbursement or fee?


Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, considering differences in terminology. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, but some solicitors do charge extra for this.
