Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk look after the conveyancing for auction properties in Vauxhall?

A.

We are very capable working with property auction conveyancing. Traditionally unusually constructed lots e. g. investment properties, are listed at property auctions which want further investigation. Lawyers therefore strongly advocate buyers to select a SRA regulated conveyancing firm in advance of the auction to allow adequate time for a thorough investigation of the property's legal title.

Subsequently, following the auction, the lawyer needs to be ready for quickly carry out the transaction within 28 days as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

Would the Vauxhall property's fixtures and fittings list the oven?

A.

Usually, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, such as sofas. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.
