We are auction specialists and can help anyone in relation to the sale or purchase of a property at Auction.

In recent years there has been an increase in the number of buyers opting to purchase their next property or Investment at a Land and Property Auction.

The overall process is much quicker and easier but often buyers can be unprepared for exactly how an Auction works.

There are a few basic tips that can help prior to any bid being made which are in principle

  • View the property before the auction
  • Organise a survey or valuation prior to auction is this is something you consider important or necessary in connection with any mortgage you will be applying for
  • Ensure your finances are in order
  • Note the contents of the legal pack and identify any concerns you may have prior to any bids
  • Understand the Auction conditions
