We are highly experienced with property auction protocols. Traditionally unusually constructed buildings e. g. Sold with defective legal titles are included in auctions which demand greater legwork.

Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Stoke Newington, near East Croydon?

Whichever East Croydon parish you are purchasing in, a lawyer could advise a chancel search.

Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
