Definition of the FORMAL TENDER process

When a property is sold by formal tender, the sale will be advertised with a deadline date by which prospective purchasers must submit their bid. Each tender document from the prospective buyers must include a signed legal contract for sale and a bankers draft representing 10% of the bid price, as a deposit. The bids are opened by the vendor or agent (representative). If a bid is selected, the bankers draft is accepted and contracts are automatically exchanged. The successful bidder is then committed to the contract and will have to complete on the sale on the appointed date. If the successful bidder fails to complete on the sale they will forfeit their deposit and further costs may be incurred.
