What does 'gazumping' involve?

A.

Gazumping describes when one purchaser's offer is accepted but then rejected by the house seller, opting instead for a second purchaser's offer.

To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

How many weeks should it take my conveyancing solicitor to carry out the legal process for the top floor of building we want to buy in Denmark Hill?

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 12 weeks, which can depend on any number of issues e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property solicitor, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries.

Q.

Q.

Should you get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing on the same street as a 1300s rectory manor in Denmark Hill.

The judgement in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Parochial Church Councils in Denmark Hill must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process.
