Our property lawyers frequently act for auction buyers and sellers. Our niche auction team of lawyers have in the past acted for numerous successful bidders at local property auctions like Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Usually more complicated to convey lots for example development propositions are purchased at property auctions which tend to demand further exploration by the conveyancing lawyer. We therefore suggest buyers to formally instruct an affordable conveyancing company in advance of the property auction date to allow sufficient time for a detailed report of the sellers documents. Following the property auction date your Homeward Legal lawyer is thoroughly able to concentrate on concluding the legal work inside a as tight time frame as usually required .
