Buy a Property

Buying by auction is a fantastic way to secure the property of your dreams. They’re no longer just for experienced investors looking for their next project, there are thousands of people every year taking advantage of the benefits auctions have to offer.

Speed – all our auction properties are offered with a fixed timescale to exchange and complete, meaning you know your moving date from the outset.

Security – By paying a reservation fee and/or a deposit to secure the property, the vendor stops all marketing and will not consider any other offers, this gives you the reassurance that you will not be gazumped.

Transparency – Auctions are considered as a more transparent way to purchase a property, whether bidding online or at a live in-room auction, you can see the other bids and place your bid at a price you’re comfortable with, without dealing with the uncertainty and stress of a closed bidding war.

Flexibility – you can bid in our online auctions 24/7, from any devise and anywhere in the Country, meaning you won’t miss out on the property you’re after.

Mortgage – buying via conditional auction offers a longer exchange and completion date than the more traditional unconditional auction route. This gives buyers the flexibility to consider applying for a mortgage, if they wish to do so. If this is the case, we strongly recommend that you arrange for an independent survey to be carried out to ensure the Bank/Building Society will lend against the property.

Personal service – our auction experts are available to offer you all the help and guidance you need, to ensure you’re comfortable with buying at auction. Please give them a call if you have any questions and they’ll happily guide you through the process to ensure buying at auction is the best route for you.

There are many advantages of selling your property by auction, it’s flexible, quick and secure.

Fixed Timescales

You can start and end the online auction at any time to suit you with fixed exchange and complete dates, giving you total control.

Minimum Reserve Price

With the reserve price agreed in advance, your property will never sell for less than you’re prepared to accept.

We can sell your property via our online auction or in one of our busy auction rooms, choosing either a conditional or unconditional sale, whichever suits you best.

Unconditional Auctions

Also known as the traditional auction method, where the purchaser will exchange contracts at the end of the online auction/on the fall of the gavel and pay a non-refundable deposit and reservation fee. Completion is usually set within 28 days giving you and your purchaser certainty of sale.

Conditional Auctions

Conditional auctions are considered to be a more flexible auction method. The purchaser pays a reservation fee to secure the property and is granted 56 days to exchange contracts and complete. This more flexible way of selling can give the purchaser longer to obtain funding, therefore potentially attracting more bidders which can result in a higher price being achieved.

Online Auctions

Our online auctions give you total flexibility over the sale of your property. You can choose a conditional or unconditional sale, giving you the same benefits of selling in a room auction but allowing you to set a timescale to suit your circumstances. Interested parties can place bids from wherever is convenient for them, and competitive bidding against each other will achieve the best price possible at the end of the sale.

In Room Auctions

With a large number of auctions held across the UK each year, there is always an auction not too far away. They are held in prestigious venues attracting up to 1,300 people. The auctioneers have a wealth of experience and work hard to achieve the best price possible for each property offered.
