We are intending to purchase a barn conversion in Godstone. Is a chancel search needed?

Is there a danger that we could be gazumped?

Gazumping occurs when a seller approves the 1st buyer's offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a greater offer.

To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
