As an auction seller, do I need an auction solicitor 

You will undoubtedly need a solicitor. You may want to appoint one as soon as you enter a property into an auction. It is best to choose a specialist auction solicitor such as Creative Legals because particular expertise is required. Your appointed auction solicitor will be responsible for creating the auction legal pack in London without delay and will handle the conveyancing of the sale after exchange through to completion. Creative Legals offer a FASTER, SMARTER and BETTER service. 

As an auction purchaser, do I need a solicitor? 

It is not imperative, but it is recommended.  We advise buyers to consult an auction solicitor before the auction to advise on the content of the auction legal pack in London. Taking legal advice is part of your necessary due diligence before you bid. Regular auction buyers may feel experienced enough to do this work themselves, but we always recommend that you consult a solicitor. 

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

If you are not a regular auction buyer, we would strongly recommend that you seek advice from a solicitor before bidding. They will be able to cast an expert eye over the auction legal pack in London and provide you with professional advice. Creative Legals offer this service at a fixed fee. Whilst it is not compulsory to have the auction legal pack checked by a solicitor, most of those who bid at auction will appreciate the assurance of a legal opinion.

Buyers will usually consult an auction 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 we recommend that you do consult an auction 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.

What checks do I need to do for my due diligence? 

It is imperative to carry out certain checks before buying an auction property. These checks include checks on the property, the property condition, remedial works required, property location and property suitability. They also include going through the auction legal pack in London including title documents, searches, special conditions of sale and other related papers. It is prudent to engage the services of an auction solicitor to check the auction legal pack in London and advise on their findings. Creative Legals specialist auction lawyers offer an excellent service at a FIXED FEE.  They can check your auction legal pack in London and provide you with preliminary advice to help you bid with confidence. 

Can a first-time buyer purchase a property at auction? 

Yes. An increasing number of first-time buyers are now purchasing properties by way of auction. 

We recommend that you get good understanding of the process first. You may want to attend an auction. Recognise that there is need for speed. You will need to work quickly when you find the property that you intend to purchase. 

How about the auction finance?

Work out how much you can afford to pay for the property and associated costs of purchase, then start searching for a suitable property in your area of choice. 

If you need a mortgage, like most first-time buyers, it is sensible to start arranging this as soon as possible – it will help you to set your budget, to bid with confidence knowing that you have the funds needed and to get things moving quickly when you do make the winning bid. Remember if you do need a mortgage then the property needs to be mortgageable; you will probably appoint a surveyor or another professional to check the property for you and provide advice on value. You will also need a solicitor to examine the legal pack and advise on any problems. Then with help from others decide on your budget and maximum bid before attending the auction. Then check your finances, make sure that you have the 10% deposit accessible as you will be required to pay it over on the day plus any other associated costs.

First-time buyers purchase at auction because it can save them money, especially if they are prepared to do some DIY which will add value to the property after they have purchased it. It is a faster way to buy, but there can be risks and you really must do all necessary due diligence before bidding in the room because the fall of the gavel delivers a binding exchange of contracts and there is no turning back.

I am not a cash buyer. Can I buy a property at auction? 

Yes, you can. However, there are real risks. 

You will nearly always need to have the deposit monies, however if you have other property assets you may be able to borrow against these. Some purchasers buy with a traditional mortgage, but to do so you will need to ensure you choose a lender who can act quickly. 

Can I buy at auction with a mortgage 

Yes, you can. But beware of the risks of failure to complete. 

Your property will need to be mortgageable.  You will need to have your mortgage in place and your mortgage offer to hand when you bid in the auction room. A decision in principle is a comfort, but it does not provide the certainty needed. It is not an unconditional offer. Remember that exchange of contracts takes place on the fall of the hammer. So, you will want to have your funding guaranteed before the bid to ensure it is available for completion, which is normally a few days later (28 days or less).
