Make sure the Contracts are checked to see if the property was previously rented, as this may impact the amount of rent that you be charged by the new owner, when renting out the property.

Property Charges

Check the Contract to examine whether VAT is payable on the Contract price. Check to see that the Contract obliges the seller to pay all outstanding property liabilities, e.g. Local Property Tax arrears, service charge arrears. 

conveyancing costs


Check with the auction site, where the keys will be collected on completion. Often the keys are in head office in Dublin for proprieties located else where in the country. Plans should be made for keys delivered as soon as possible after completion.

What our clients say about our auction service

  • I used the pre-auction legal service from Madden Law and was very happy with it. With only 24hrs notice from the auction, Shona went through the legal pack for me and checked if there was anything to be worrying about, which can often happen with auction properties. Great service.
