Q.

Does your solicitors firm advise on the conveyancing of auction properties in Beckenham?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with residential property auction protocols. Traditionally difficult to value auction lots like un-mortgageable properties, are listed at property auctions which need further exploration prior to exchange. Lawyers therefore strongly advise auction buyers to formally instruct a conveyancing firm well before the actual auction for a full report of the documents.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction your dedicated conveyancing lawyer is thoroughly ready for concluding the legal side of things within the limited time as usually required by the terms of sale.
