The legal team prepare legal packs for vendors and commonly get instructed by buyers at auction. It is prudent for buyers to formally appoint a good lawyer asap to allow time for a detailed report of the legal papers for the lot in advance of the property auction.

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