Gazumping is common across England and Wales and happens when a seller accepts the 1st buyer's offer, only to reject it in favour of another purchaser's offer. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a proactive solicitor as soon as possible.
