Choose Your Sales Method
  • paragraph

    Modern Method
    Upon the close of the auction, the successful purchaser is required to pay a reservation fee/deposit and sign a reservation form. In return for this the buyer reserves the right to unconditionally exchange contracts on a property at an agreed price within 28 days and complete 28 days thereafter. This method is more suited to the residential purchaser, allowing time for surveys and finance to be arranged.
  • paragraph

    Traditional Method
    Contracts are exchanged immediately, with completion taking place within the next 28 days. Complete security is provided but this method is more suited to the property professional as it is legally binding.
  • paragraph

    Choose Your preferred payment method

    Vendor Paid

    You can opt to pay the sales fee instead of the fee being charged to the purchaser. If you decide to do this we will take a non refundable deposit from the buyer secure the sale.

  • paragraph

    Reservation Fee (Paid by the Buyer)
    Under this payment method, the buyer will pay a non refundable reservation fee in addition to the purchase price. This covers the costs of the auction and as this is paid on a non refundable basis, you know the buyers is serious and in a proceedable position.
  • paragraph

    Sellers Benefits

    An increase in interest on your property

    The pricing strategy that we employ creates increased levels of interest and viewings that heightened the chances of selling your property quickly.

    Achieve fair market value

    Think about how an owner of a piece of fine art maximises its value? They sell it at auction! Due to the increased marketing and unique pricing strategy that we operate, we guarantee to get you the fairest price in the current market. A property will always sell for what its worth, plus you have a reserve price so you know it won't sell for anything less than the one you are happy with.

    A fixed date to sell & move

    Fixed time scales for exchange & completion provide clarity for both parties. A fixed time scale is not often set when selling a property through private treaty with sales taking much longer than anticipated. This added security is a big benefit to most vendors looking to move forward with confidence.

  • paragraph

    Check which method the property you're interested in is being sold under

    Properties can be sold under two methods; the modern or traditional method.

    Modern Method

    The successful purchaser is required to pay a reservation fee /deposit and sign a reservation form. The buyer reserves the right to unconditionally exchange contracts on the property at an agreed price within 28 days and complete 28 days thereafter.

  • paragraph

    Traditional Method

    Contracts are exchanged immediately, with completion taking place within the next 28 days. Complete security is provided but this method is more suited to the property professional. We will require a 10% deposit paid on a non refundable basis and in some cases a reservation fee as well.

    Check if the property is subject to a reservation fee or deposit

    Reservation Fees

    If a reservation fee is due, this will be clearly shown on the specific terms and conditions on the individual property page. You should check if a reservation fee is due before bidding on any property. Sales are subject to a reservation fee which covers our costs, (unlike traditional property transactions where the seller pays the fee). This is a percentage of the final selling price, and is in addition to it. The reservation fee reserves the property for the buyer and must be paid at the end of the auction by the successful bidder. If the sale falls through due to an act of the vendor the reservation fee will be refunded in full.

  • paragraph


    If a deposit is due, this will be clearly shown on the specific terms and conditions on the individual property page. This is paid at the end of the auction and is held in a secure client account until exchange of contracts takes place. The amounts can vary on properties, so please check the terms and conditions.

    Auction Packs

    Buyers will be required to purchase the Auction Pack searches at £200 inc VAT.

  • paragraph

    Buyer benefits

    A quick & easy bidding process

    Buying a property through our auction couldn't be easier. You can bid from your desk, from the comfort of your home, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    A wide range of properties

    Auction provides buyers with the opportunity to purchase realistically priced properties quickly and easily. All of the properties advertised through our property auction are offered by committed sellers at realistic prices. Many properties are vacant with no onward chain.

  • paragraph

    A secure transaction

    The auction method also gives transparency for both buyer and seller as the sale is in the public domain so the fear of gazumping or re-negotiation is completely removed.

    You can even buy with a mortgage

    Depending on which auction option has been selected, you will have between 28 - 56 days to complete on the property. If you are purchasing through the Modern Method of Auction there is usually enough time to purchase with residential auction finance.

    If you are unsure about any of the information provided in this guide, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Auction Department for further clarification.

    However if you prefer you can call the auction department to register or place a bid on your behalf. Our team of property professionals can talk you through the bidding process and answer any questions you may have.

    Before placing a bid we strongly advise that you carry out market research and due diligence on any property you are interested in bidding on. Make sure to review any legal documents we will have for the subject property, these will be contained in the Auction Pack that you can download from the property details page. The information contained within the Auction Pack provides more information to help you to make informed decisions on whether or not to bid on the property and at what level.

    We recommend that before bidding you visually inspect the property internally and are completely happy with what's on offer. Full terms and conditions are viewable in the bidding section of each property page; please review the terms and conditions relevant to the property you are interested in.

  • paragraph

    Starting Bids

    These are prices published for each property and are the level at which the bidding will commence. Starting bids are for guidance only and are not reserve prices. These prices may occasionally change throughout the marketing period.

    Online Auction

    A proportion of the properties offered for sale on the site are only offered through the online auction. Bidders benefit from being able to bid from the comfort of their own home 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The auction software provides every bidder the chance to have one last bid as for every bid made in the last 10 minutes, the auction end time will be increased by 2 minutes making sure the highest bid wins the auction. Online auctions are identifiable by the purple bar located across the bottom section of the main picture on the individual property page.

    The Online Auction will start with an end date that will be clearly stated on the property details page in the "Countdown Clock". If the vendor decides to alter the auction date we will make every endeavour to contact all parties who have registered an interest to advise of the changes to the auction timeframes. Once the new end date has been set and all parties have been advised the auction will continue as normal.

    Auction Room

    If the property is flagged as "auction room" then the property will be offered for sale at one of our regional auction events, however it may still be possible to place a bid but you will need to contact the auction team to discuss doing so. Around 50% of the properties on the site are listed for sale by auction at one of our regional auction events. While these properties are listed on the website bids can be made before the auction end date however buyers are encouraged to come to the auction room and bid. Auction room properties are identifiable by the blue bar located across the bottom section of the main picture on the individual property page. There are a number of ways to bid remotely if you cannot make the auction date so please contact the auction team who will be more than happy to discuss the process with you.

  • paragraph

    Reserve Price

    This is the minimum price that is acceptable to the vendor for selling a subject lot in the auction. We do not publish reserve prices; this figure is a private agreement between the vendor and the auctioneer.

    Bidding Process

    Once you have made a bid, you will be kept up to date by email and via your auction dashboard which can be accessed by logging into our site. This will keep you up to speed with any properties that you have placed a bid on, or that you are watching.

    When counter-bidding on a property you must increase by a minimum of £500 from the previous bid.

    Once you have made the bid via the online system, you will be contacted by a member of our staff to make sure you are happy and to answer any questions you may have.

    We will have a number of questions for you regarding your buying position and we will need to obtain some proof of ID, address and also information regarding your funding of the purchase and any mortgage offers or decisions in principle.

    All properties will continue to be offered for sale until the end of the auction period unless we are instructed by our vendor to accept an offer prior to the completion of the auction. You must register your interest in the property at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment, either by "watching" the subject, or by contacting us directly.

    Once an online auction has ended and your bid is successful or if you have an offer accepted over the course of the auction period, there will be a maximum 48 hour period when you will be required to pay the reservation fee/deposit and sign an acknowledgment of reservation form.

    The reservation fee/deposit is to be paid by bankers draft or bank transfer, card payment or cheque. Please note, we will not proceed with the transaction until we are in receipt of cleared funds.

    The acknowledgment of a reservation form will be issued upon acceptance of an offer or upon completion of an auction when the highest bid is in excess of the reserve price.

    Once the acknowledgment of reservation form has been signed by the buyer and the payment of the reservation fee has been confirmed, memorandums of sale will be issued to the buyer, the buyer's solicitor, the vendor and the vendor's solicitor.

    Please note, if you are the successful bidder at one of our regional auction events you will be required to pay the reservation fee/deposit and sign an acknowledgment of reservation form immediately following the fall of the hammer.

    Following the distribution of the Memorandum of Sale to all parties the seller's solicitor will issue the draft contract to the buyer's solicitor. Once the buyer's solicitor is in receipt of the draft contract the 28 day period to achieve exchange of contracts will commence.

    In the event that a subject property is offered for sale on an unconditional basis, the buyer will be required to exchange immediately following the fall of the hammer or upon close of a successful online auction.
