Q.

How do I protect against getting gazumped?

A.

This arises when the first purchaser's offer is accepted but then rejected by the owner, in favour of another buyer's offer. The risk of gazumping is present in any transaction. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a proactive solicitor as soon as you can.

Q.

Should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor put forward by our estate agent?

A.

Your Talbot Green agent will suggest a solicitor. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
