Do I need a solicitor before the auction?

Buyers will usually consult a solicitor or conveyancer before the auction to advise on the content of the legal pack. Taking legal advice is part of your necessary due diligence before you bid. Some regular auction buyers may feel experienced enough to do this work themselves, but for others we recommend that you do consult a solicitor. If required, do speak with the auctions team about who to use and what you need them to do.

If you are the successful purchaser, you will need to have your appointed solicitor’s details available for completion of the memorandum of sale.
