Homeward Legal is used to working with property auction procedures. Often unusual properties like building plots are bought in auctions which tend to require increased exploration before exchange.

Post property auction date, your lawyer is fully prepared to complete the purchase in the 28 day time frame, a normal requirement of terms and conditions of sale.
