Helping you to buy an auction property

You may be thinking about purchasing a property through an auction house. Prior to the auction it is important that you carry out thorough checks and investigations on the property ahead of the auction as when the gavel drops, you will have entered into a legally binding contract.

At Nelsons, we have one of the largest teams of conveyancing solicitors in the East Midlands, helping hundreds of families in DerbyLeicester and Nottingham in buying properties sold at auction every year.

Conveyancing process – buying an auction property

When you have found a property you are interested in and before the auction:

  • Contact us to give us details of the house you want to buy.
  • Get an instant, comprehensive conveyancing fee quote, which you can use to instruct us.

We will send you:

  • A quotation, together with our terms and conditions.
  • An instruction form to complete with details about you, the seller and the transaction.
  • We will need proof of your identity to comply with Money Laundering legislation, or you can give us permission to undertake verification checks.

We will then:

  • Obtain the legal pack provided by the Auction House, which should contain information about the title deeds, special conditions of sale, searches and any other important documents.
  • We will provide a thorough report on the title and the documents provided to us from the Auction House to ensure that you have a good understanding of the property prior to the auction.
  • If you are successful at the auction, we will then see the transaction through to a successful completion.
