Indeed we deal with auctions throughout the UK and do frequently work for buyers and sellers at auction. It is a sensible decision for bidders to instruct a Houghton Regis solicitor as ahead of time as they can to allow adequate time for a title report of the sellers documents well before the auction. Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date your appointed lawyer is absolutely focused on finishing the legal side of things in a month as required by the terms of sale.Q.
There are no arguments why you cannot undertake the majority of the legal process without a proficient Houghton Regis property solicitor. The truth is however that a property lawyer takes care of a huge array of jobs ranging from chasing notices/share certificates and apportioning service charges most of which require adequate training. More importantly amateur lawyers will not be covered by suitable cover that all solicitors firms must carry.Q.
Land may be contaminated by many factors caused by man and by nature, like limestone or gypsum quarrying. An environmental search can give more clarity.Q.
No. Our solicitors never charge any additional fees for any reason. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.Q.
As is widely reported, a fast transaction is key is to use a proactive property lawyer. When selecting a property lawyer, consider these questions: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? Do they order searches immediately?
