Q.

How can we avoid getting gazumped?

A.

This happens when a lower offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property seller, opting instead for a higher offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as early as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.
