Does your solicitors firm get involved in the conveyancing of auction properties in Frenchay Common?


We are very competent with residential property auction conveyancing. Very often more complicated to convey homes such as residential investments, are purchased at property auctions which tend to need extended due diligence by the lawyer. Solicitors therefore strongly suggest buyers to formally appoint a CQS lawyer in advance of the day of the auction to allow enough time for a full report of the documents.

Immediately following the auction the lawyer is completely prepared for concluding the purchase in the limited time frame as typically required .
