Can I Make An Offer On An "under Offer" Property?

Recommended Posts

Yes. If you look at the listing the estate agent will have contact details, which means they are still marketing it as available for viewings.

My previous landlord's place ie my old place in N Zummerzet (which has had £100k knocked off the price he first put it on at in August 2007 the pillock) has been 'under offer' now for about 3 months with no sign of STC happening. I shudder to think what the offer is ...

Some unscrupulous estate agents will also take offers post STC but that's really called gazumping which is of course a BAD THING except when you are a greedy vendor. I don't imagine there's much of it at the moment.

There is a property that I saw a few weeks ago that is now "Under Offer". Is it possible to make an offer on such a property (it is not "Sold STC")?

It depends on the agency marketing the flat.

You need to ask them if the exchange of contracts has taken place and what the situation is.

If the contracts have not yet been exchanged, anything can happen.

It's the vendors' decision to withdraw the listing.

The one I've just bought had been left listed on the agency's website as "for sale" up until last week, when the money was sent for completion. I understand my vendors though in this case, because they had found a buyer, but this person had let them down before exchanging contracts and the deal fell through.
