Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.Q.
Gazumping takes place when a seller accepts an offer, only to reject it in favour of a higher offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Consider instructing your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.
