I might have been deceived or involved in illegal activity?


I'm buying a property from an auction


. The seller of the property isn't the owner of the property. It is an investment company that has signed an agreement with the real landlord.


Their completion date is the same as my contract with the investment company but an hour earlier.


The reason I think it might be fraud is because we have dealt with the investment company solicitors in the past.


Their solicitors didn't want to say too much but they hinted that they wouldn't deal with that company again and what they are doing is grey area.


It sounds to me like they might be evading tax and I don't want to be involved in it? Should I be worried about it?


When I spoke with my own solicitors, they didn't seem to worry at all?

As long as the purchase is safe and you are not likely to receive a letter saying the house isn't yours after you have paid the money, you can always make your suspicions known to HMRC.

In that case, get it checked out by the solicitor and get it in writing from the solicitor that it is a proper sale and the house can't be claimed back at some time in the future. If you do this, you will have a claim against the solicitor.


The amount of houses on the market would make me just walk away and look somewhere else.
