Q.

How can I protect the purchase from getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a owner approves the first purchaser's offer, only to later dismiss it in favour of a greater offer. It may happen even months into a transaction. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. You should instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

My partner and I are purchasing in Thornaby. Can I check that the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas safeguard streets and neighbourhoods designated as being of historical merit. These restrictions adds to upkeep costs, but the benefits will include better maintained homes and gardens. Your lawyer will provide more details.
