It is crucial for auction buyers to formally instruct a suitable lawyer as fast as possible to allow for a thorough investigation of the legal papers for the lot well in advance of the property auction. Homeward Legal’s specialist solicitors have in the past been instructed by numerous successful bidders at local auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London.

There are no legal reasons at all why you as a buyer should not look after the conveyancing work yourself. That said, a lawyer is familiar with a huge array of actions (such as applying for office copies of lease and other land registration documents, or notifying all parties of exchange), many of which require training and experience. Were you to take on the work yourself, there is a real risk of significant delay in completing the conveyancing. Moreover, legal practices are obligated to carry personal indemnity insurance cover to protect you in the event of any negligence.
Crucial to making the buying process faster is appointing a proactive property lawyer like those on Homeward Legal’s solicitor panel. You should also consider the following:
