All of our property conveyancers do frequently take instructions from auction buyers and sellers. We often advocate bidders to appoint a local conveyancing company well before the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a full review of the sellers pack.

Subsequently, following the property auction, a solicitor is fully prepared to finalise the conveyancing in less than 28 days as usually required by the terms of sale.

Church of England properties in the area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew's Church, St Gabriel, St Hilda and St Margaret.

Is a postage, photocopying and phone calls fee a fee or disbursement?
