The purchaser will not be exchanging contracts on the fall of the virtual hammer but will be given 56 working days in which to complete the transaction, from the date the Draft Contract are issued by the seller’s solicitor. By giving a buyer time to exchange contracts on the property, means normal residential finance can be sort.

Further clarification on this must be sought from your legal representative. The buyer will be required to sign a Reservation form to confirm acceptance of terms prior to solicitors being instructed. Copies of the Reservation form and all terms and conditions can be found in the Info Pack which can be downloaded for free from our website or requested from our Auction Department.

 Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to make payment of a non-refundable Buyers Premium of £6,600 including VAT plus an administration charge of £354 including VAT, a total of £6,954. This secures the transaction and takes the property off the market.
