Q.

How do we avoid gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a property owner acknowledges the 1st buyer's offer and later rejects it. Instead, they then go for another buyer's offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a fast, efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
