Q.

Does your solicitors company do auction conveyancing in Southgate?

A.

Homeward Legal is used to working with residential property auction conveyancing. Very often hard to value buildings such as un-mortgageable properties are listed in auctions which tend to demand extended investigation by the conveyancing lawyer. Lawyers therefore advocate that buyers formally appoint a local property conveyancing lawyer well before the auction day to allow enough time for a detailed investigation.

Following the auction day, your lawyer needs to be geared up to speedily get through the purchase legal work in the 4 week time frame, a requirement of terms and conditions of sale.
