What is gazumping?


Gazumping occurs when a property seller accepts the 1st buyer's offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a greater offer. There is almost always a chance of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.


What will the Halstead property solicitor do if the home I hope to purchase is within a local authority conservation area and has unfitting removal of chimney stacks installed?
