Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk handle the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Kingsbridge?

A.

Our company is able to act for auction buyers and sellers. Our auction team solicitors have been instructed by countless bidders at regional auctions that, amongst others, include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Frequently unusual auction lots such as residential investments are listed in property auctions and these need more exploration before committing. Lawyers therefore suggest that purchasers appoint their lawyer before the property auction to allow enough time for a thorough investigation of the sellers pack. Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction your now prepared property conveyancing lawyer is completely able to concentrate on finishing the transaction within 28 days as typically required .

Q.

What will the Kingsbridge conveyancing lawyer do when the maisonette we hope to buy is within a local authority conservation area and has incongruous windows installed?
