Auctions & Investment Property Advisory
Whether our clients are buying or selling at auction (including those subject to occupational leases) and whether the property is commercial or residential, Harold Benjamin’s Auction team are trusted to ensure the entire process is as successful as possible.
From offering pre-sale advice, to helping identify the right properties for purchase at auction, we advise on the entire auction process. We bid in the room or remotely on behalf of both experienced and new entrants to the market. In addition, we help buyers review the legal papers prior to bidding and deal with the conveyancing once a property has been bought.
Our legal expertise in advising on whether a lease is an FRI lease; or addressing the risks posed by rent reviews; or early termination clause; or rights of access and VAT provisions means that we can offer insight into value of the Property you are looking to buy and on the yield you can expect to receive for your investment.
Preparation is key, and sellers also particularly appreciate our unflappable calmness when dealing promptly and efficiently with pre auction enquiries from interested parties in helping achieve a successful sale.
Because our team works has extremely strong connections with the leading London auction houses, we are acknowledged for our reputation for getting things done. Clients regularly praise both the value the team can add, and their ability to guide buyers or sellers through the entire auction process, making it as effortless as possible, whatever the timescale.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Advising buyers and sellers at auction
- Reviewing pre-sale documentation and advising on leases
- Preparing legal packs for sellers
- Providing commercial advice on the potential risks and rewards of a particular transaction.
