Q.

How do I protect my offer from gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is widespread both in Heston, and across North London and describes circumstances where a house seller approves a purchaser's offer, only to later reject it in favour of a better offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.
