Buying and selling property at auction

Buying and selling property at auction

Buying at Property Auctions

Buying property at auction can be rewarding but there are pitfalls. The auction process is different to a traditional sale through a commercial property agent because, once the hammer falls, you are committed to the sale.

Most properties will have an auction pack available for inspection and, if you are thinking of making a bid, it is vital that you take advice on the legal documentation available prior to the auction date.

We have a specialist property team ready to advise you on all aspects of the legal title, we can check through the legal pack for you and provide you with a summary of the legal issues so that you are armed with the knowledge you need to be secure in your investment.

Selling at Property Auctions

Selling at auction can be a stressful process but it can also be a great way to sell your property. Before the day of the auction arrives, most auctioneers will want the property to have a pre-prepared auction legal pack which we can prepare for you.

The legal pack contains all relevant information about the property including title documents, leases (where applicable), searches, planning documentation and office copy entries and can be a real asset in encouraging buyers to think seriously about your property.

We can analyse your title deeds and advise you of any problems that there might be as well as suggest possible solutions. We understand how important a sale can be and our aim is to ensure that we give you every assistance we can to achieve that goal.
