Does Homeward Legal look after auction conveyancing in North Ockendon?

A.

We are able to act on property auction conveyancing. Regularly specialist auction lots such as residential investments are listed in auctions and these want extended inquiries before committing. We therefore advocate that buyers formally instruct a lawyer in advance of the actual auction for a detailed report. Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date you are the lawyer will be geared up to swiftly conclude the auction conveyancing process in less than the usual 28 days as usually required by the standard auction conditions.

Q.

Do we need to use the solicitors firm suggested by the agent?

Many agents in Southmead have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
