Auction Service

Check out the Legal Aspects of Buying a House at a Property Auction Before you Bid

Buying a house at auction can be a daunting prospect. Our Auction service has been designed specifically for anyone thinking of purchasing at auction who wants to check out the legal aspects before they bid on a property.

Quick Enquiry


How can you be safe, not sorry, at property auctions?

We can provide you with a written or verbal report with copies of any relevant papers, setting out exactly what you are letting yourself in for, a guide on property auction procedures, and if you are successful our experienced team will manage the process through to completion.


Specialist Advice Before You Bid

We will give you advice about your deposit, surveys and finance, synchronising with other transactions, and your insurance obligations.


Auction Review and Report Package

Our Auction review and report package starts at £650 plus VAT payable immediately, provided we have at least ten working days notice before the property auction to allow us time to get papers through from the auctioneer, or from the seller's solicitors.

We can sometimes offer our Auction service right up to the day of the auction but our report will be verbal, rather than written and there will be an additional charge.

We will:

  •   make sure you are well-prepared for an auction
  •   check the contract and the seller's ability to sell
  •   advise you on the legal implications
  •   advise on property auction procedures
  •   complete your purchase if you are successful in your bid

To discuss your specific requirements regarding property auctions and the benefits of our Auction service, please call us on Bristol 0117 925 2020, London 0207 405 1234 or Watford 01923 919 300.

No aspect stands out, as all aspects were exceptional. That said, I particularly appreciate the direct way in which my questions have been dealt with, regardless of whether or not a I was going to like the answer - that approach has saved time and, of course, money.
