Buying a new home is a big decision to make.
There are so many things to think about.
And of course, it can be stressful.
There are usually mortgage providers involved, always solicitors playing a part
and often a property chain of other home sellers.
One of the biggest stresses buyers across West London endure is the fear of being
Gazumping occurs when a seller accepts a verbal offer on the property from one
potential buyer, but then accepts a higher offer from someone else.

The good news is we have dramatically reduced the risk of these two things
Years of experience have taught us the concerns buyers feel and that’s why we use
something called Reservation Agreements.
For a small, refundable one-off payment, sellers and buyers can guarantee a
meaningful financial commitment to each other at the start of the sale.
This provides both parties peace of mind that they are dealing with people who are
serious about moving and committed to making it happen as smoothly as possible.
At Leslie & Co, we feel strongly that this is something all estate
agents should be offering their buyers and sellers. Sadly, not many agents do.
We can also help with recommendations for conveyancing solicitors we work with and
know to be professional, capable and efficient.
