Q.

Are we at risk of gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a seller agrees to the 1st buyer's offer and later rejects it. Instead, they then go for a second purchaser's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of gazumping. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.
