Auction Scene With Auctioneer In The Foreground

When it comes to helping out with auction purchases, we deliver an impressively fast, streamlined service for our clients, as well as plenty of legal advice throughout the whole process. When the bids are made and the gavel falls, you’ll be fully prepared as our lawyers will be by your side every step of the way.

When is a Auction Conveyancer Required?

During competitive property auctions, there can be rapid and impulsive exchanges of ownership between buyers and sellers. Although the speed of auctions can make them very efficient for marketing properties, the minutiae of the conveyancing contracts may not always be inspected with enough scrutiny. This is where a professional conveyancing lawyer can come in to provide that extra level of clarification when details and documents are exchanged.

The Hillfort Law Firm Process

Auction Conveyancing Process – When the Hammer Falls

When you win the bidding war for a property at auction, the sale of the property instantly becomes a binding agreement the moment the auctioneer drops their hammer and confirms the sale. This rule is strictly upheld in real life auctions and it is one of the many reasons why auctions cannot be taken lightly. Failure to properly follow through with an auction sale or purchase can incur serious consequences, from large fines to court hearings, so a legal expert is definitely required for these procedures.

Step 1

Initial Consultation

Call us today for a free consultation, which will help to determine the right conveyancing service for your needs and conclude with a quote. If you’ve been around the property auction circuit lately and need some help with the legal details, this will likely be the ideal package for you.

Step 2

Identity Verification

One of the initial steps of the conveyancing process is to confirm the identities of all involved participants. Checking over identification documents is a fast, simple process for our lawyer team.

Step 3

Checks and Reviews

As well as identity checks, we need to ascertain the legitimacy of the auction transaction and perform many other standardised documentation reviews for Anti-Money Laundering, SDLT, bankruptcy, and more.

Step 4

Instruct Your Lawyer

We will send a Letter of Engagement form, as well as other T&C documents for you to sign. Your lawyer will now be ready to work on your behalf in all conveyancing matters going forward, leaving you with less stress to deal with.

    I selected Hillfort Law Firm from a selection of solicitors based on their reviews and reasonable pricing. I was not disappointed.  Contact was by email and telephone calls which were thorough. The best test of an experience is how a company deals with an issue. We were faced with having to navigate around a bank requirement. They were so helpful in solving the problem to everyone's satisfaction. Excellent professional service. Hillfort Law Firm are strongly recommended.

    I recently used Hillfort Law Firm when purchasing a property and could not have been happier with the service received. Initially, I was hesitant to use a firm not local to the property but I really believe that Hillfort and Adam Muldoon in particular made a real difference for quick completion and covering all risks ensuring that the property was a sound purchase. I will definitely use Adam again for any future property sales.

  • James Green

    I have used Hillfort Law Firm on several occasions, and they have proved to be very reliable. The conveyancing for my most recent property has been very challenging due to the lease, freeholder and management company. Hillfort Law has been very professional and helpful in communication with the various third parties. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them for any future conveyancing requirements.

  • Ann Baker

    Was recommended to Hillfort Law Firm by my estate agent and I was not in any way disappointed. One of the first solicitors that have rung me back when they said they would, kept me informed every step of the way, was on top of the necessary steps needed to sell my old and buy my new house and genuinely looked after my interests. On top of this Adam was a pleasure to speak to. I don't intend to move again but without a doubt would go to Hillfort for legal advice.

    Auction Conveyancing FAQs

    What is auction conveyancing?

    Auction conveyancing is the process of transferring title deeds between buyers and sellers after the former make their bids at property auctions. At auction, land ownership may be exchanged at a furious pace, leaving little time to read the small print. Let our experienced auction conveyancing lawyers handle your affairs.

    What is an auction commission?

    An auction commission is a fee charged by auctioneers for successfully selling a property.

    How much do auctions charge?

    Auctioneers begin bids at a recommended starting price and rise from there, but an advantage of auctioning properties is that there is effectively no price ceiling for how high the bids can go. If there are a few especially committed bidders, the value of your property can quickly go through the roof.

    How does auction bidding work?

    Bidding is the act of making a pledge to a price levied by the auctioneer, which can subsequently be overridden by another bidder. The price for the auctioned property progressively increases as more bidders place their bids, resulting in a frenetic competition that eventually ends with one participant outbidding their competitors at the highest price that either of them are willing to rise to. Auctions are more diverse than ever thanks to the advent of online eBidding, covering almost any commodity imaginable.

    Can I pull out of an auction bid once it has been made?

    Unfortunately, no. The biggest risk of partaking in an auction is the fact that once you make a bid, you are legally bound to it for the entire auction process. You cannot revoke it. If you win an auction, the sale of the property (marked by the falling of the gavel) holds the same weight as a normal contract agreement and must be upheld. Failure to uphold your end of the bargain can result in hefty fines and other legal action.

    What are the benefits of auctioning houses over selling them normally?

    Auctioning houses generally secures much faster results than conventional property marketing methods. If properties have dodgy title deeds or suffer from spartan layouts, they can be harder to market in other ways. The limitless ceiling of auction bidding can quickly skyrocket the property’s value for serious investors who can quickly get caught up in the competitive emotions of the auction house environment. For these reasons and more, auctioning properties is an increasingly popular option for both buyers and sellers.
