    Q.

    What does 'gazumping' mean?

    A.

    Gazumping is not uncommon in St Neots and happens when a property owner approves an offer and later refuses it. Instead, they then go for another buyer's higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a property solicitor early.

    I am expecting to be moving from our terraced house near St Neots into our new flat in March when to appoint a home removal company?
