Q.

What does 'gazumping' mean?

A.

This happens when a seller agrees to an offer, only to dismiss it, opting for a higher offer. It may happen mere days before exchange of contracts. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. You should instruct a property solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

If you want to have a try you can definitely engage in the bulk of the legal and technical work without an expert Shillington conveyancing solicitor. Of course legal firms would argue this is a very risky route t take as DIY lawyers do not have applicable professional indemnity insurance which solicitors are obligated to be covered by.
