Do your lawyers handle the conveyancing for auction properties in Stansted?


Homeward Legal often do the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. Homeward Legal consistently advise purchasers to appoint a solicitor in advance of the auction day to allow enough time for a detailed review.

Do we need to plan for gazumping?


The convention of rejecting the first offer post-acceptance when a better offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. Instructing a solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.
