Q.

Are many purchasers in West Ham gazumped?

A.

The convention of choosing to reject an accepted offer on a property when a better one is made by another buyer is called gazumping. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of gazumping. Instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should you get a conveyancer to act on our sale?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier could mitigate the chance of the purchase or sale stalling.
