Regularly more complicated to convey homes e. g. short lease property, are sold at auction and these will want added exploration by the lawyer. We therefore encourage bidders to formally instruct their chosen lawyer in advance of the date of the auction so there is time for a detailed report. Thereafter, following the auction day itself, a solicitor needs to be able to concentrate on get through the legal process inside a month as conventionally required by the terms and conditions of sale.
