Conveyancers therefore advocate buyers to appoint a SRA regulated lawyer in advance of the date of the auction to give enough time for a title report of the sellers pack.

Following the auction day itself a prepared property conveyancing lawyer will need to be geared up to finalise the purchase in 28 days after exchange as required by the auction conditions.
