Auction Tips to Help You

We’re here to make buying a property at auction as easy and hassle-free as possible – so here are a few tips to help you.

Go to one of the viewing days if possible, and study the pre-prepared auction pack. Researching local prices on the internet is useful too.

Arrange a survey in advance so you know exactly what condition the property’s in, and if necessary look into the possible costs for any repairs.

Make sure funds are in place to cover the deposit and completion – and don’t bid without having your funds in place.

Ask a solicitor for advice and guidance, read the auction Terms & Conditions in advance and check prior to the auction for any amendments – it isn’t unusual to see changes to the terms of sale or guide price.
