Of course! Our property lawyers are frequently instructed by bidders at property auctions. Our specialist property lawyers have been involved in many local residential property auctions like those at Drivers & Norris, Countrywide Property Auctions, Brendons Auctioneers, Baxtons, Barnett Ross, Award Property, Auction House London, Allsop (Residential), Allsop (Commercial), and Acuitus.
Smart buyers at auction tend to formally instruct their conveyancing company very quickly to allow enough time to get a title report and the auction legal pack before the auction day itself. Thereafter, your fully-prepared lawyer is thoroughly prepared to conclude all of the legal work within a month, which is the standard timescale for legally completing the purchase.
