Property auctions

We are Pleased to announce that we will now be holding live property auctions.

In line with Government guidelines,  there will be strict rules in place to ensure everyone’s safety. Everyone attending will be asked to sign in, giving details of name, address and contact numbers and sign a declaration to state that you have not been in contact with a positive Covid-19 case nor have visited a high risk area during the previous 14 days. Hand sanitisers will be available.

Chairs will be placed two metres apart. You will be required to remain seated until the auction has finished.

Do not attend if you suspect that you may have been exposed to infection, are feeling unwell or if you fall into any of the vulnerable categories. Please stay at home and STAY SAFE!

If you would like to bid but cannot attend please contact the office on 01629 812777

We are passionate about auctions and have been selling land and properties at public auctions since our company was established in 1871.

There are a number of benefits to buying or selling this way and with a little bit of prior research and preparation, auctions can be quick and cost effective for both parties.

Due to the changes made to the Money Laundering Regulations, we are now required by law to verify the identity and address of everyone who offers, bids or buys at our auction.  An auction registration form can be found below.

To sell your property or land at auction, it will be valued by one of our experts and both an auction guide price and reserve price agreed upon.  A small fee is charged to include your lot in the listings, (which is payable only when your property sells), and upon completion you will be charged a pre-agreed commission rate.  We will coordinate contract packs and conditions of sale documents, in conjunction with your chosen solicitor, as these documents need to be available to interested parties prior to the auction.

From a buyer’s perspective, we also make the process as straight forward as possible.  At the fall of the hammer, a member of our team will approach the successful bidder and immediately after the auction, and once proof of identification has been provided, the buyer will be expected to sign a legally binding Contract and pay a 10% deposit.  A buyer's fee of £400 plus VAT (£480 inc. VAT) will be charged per auction lot.  If one property is offered in more than one lot, the fee will be chargeable on all lots whether or not one purchaser buys all.  Completion would normally then occur 28 days later unless specified otherwise.  It’s as easy as that!

If you think your property might be suitable for auction or if you would like some free, confidential advice about the buying process, please contact a member of our team.
