Modern Method of Auction This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with Traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the purchaser to exchange contracts immediately, but grant 28 days to achieve exchange of contracts from the date the buyer's solicitor is in receipt of the draft contracts and a further 28 days thereafter to complete. Allowing the additional time to exchange of the property means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the action, the buyer will be required to put down a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 3.5% plus vat, subject to a minimum of £6,000 plus VAT which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. The buyer will be required to sign an Acknowledgement of 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 Legal Pack which can be downloaded for free from the auction section of our website or required from our Auction Department.

Please note this property is subject to an undisclosed Reserve Price which is generally no more than 10% in excess of the Starting Bid. Both the Starting Bid and Reserve Price can be subject to change. Our primary duty of care is to the vendor. Terms and conditions apply to the Modern Method of Auction, which is operated by iam-sold Ltd 

Location West Beckham is an attractive, rural North Norfolk village and is within short driving distance of the towns of both Sheringham and Cromer with all their many amenities. This historic village has an entry in the Doomsday Book of 1085. There is an attractive parish church of St Helen and All Saints with an unusual construction of shingled walls both inside and outside and a front aspect that is reminiscent of a wedding cake. The one village pub is called The Wheatsheaf which was formerly the Old Manor Farmhouse, a building with a wealth of history and which serves good food and real ale. The adjacent village is Bodham where there is a thriving village hall regularly used by the community for church events and fundraisers and for those who enjoy country walks this lovely property would be ideal with access from your front door to the beautiful North Norfolk countryside.
