Does your firm carry out the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Shadwell?

Yes - Our firm is familiar with property auction conveyancing. Typically specialist buildings e. g. structurally defective property, are sold at property auctions which need greater inquiries. We therefore suggest that buyers at auction select an experienced conveyancing lawyer well before the auction day to give enough time for a detailed investigation of the documents.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction, a lawyer should be geared up to conclude the legal process in less than 28 days, a requirement of terms and conditions of sale.


What type of environmental searches concerning the risk of local flooding in the Tower Hamlets region will the lawyer in Shadwell actually conduct?


An integral component in the conveyancing protocol involves a conveyancer applying for property conveyancing searches that set out information with regard to Shadwell area flood risk. A significantly more specific dedicated flood risk search (e.g Homecheck) will typically be recommended by the conveyancing solicitor in Shadwell if the results of the enviro. search reveal a potential flood risk to the property. A recent check (05-Dec-08) there were no warnings around the Tidal Thames from the Limehouse Basin to Blackfriars Bridge at the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, the City of London, the City of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea
