buying at auction – an exciting opportunity

Four essential things to prepare for an auction • solicitors • survey • finance • ID Auctions offer a whole range of different and exciting property opportunities - why not see what is on offer? It may seem a daunting process to buy in a saleroom but if you follow these guidelines it is a very straightforward and enjoyable process. Do not be afraid to ask for guidance from us - we are there to help you. Can I attend an auction to see what happens? An auction is a public event you are most welcome to attend. We recommend that anyone thinking of buying by this method attends auctions in order to familiarise themselves with the process. How do I find out about new properties? Join our mailing list by either calling the office or send us an email via our website. How do I view the property? Viewings will be arranged and times published. You can view at these times without making an appointment. Arrive early to take advantage of the maximum viewing time. What is a price guide? An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price

(see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. What is a reserve price? The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. Can I make an offer? Pre auction offers can be only submitted by completing the OFFER FORM which can be downloaded within the online legal pack. Please note offers will not be considered until you have viewed the property and the COMPLETE legal pack has been released. In the event of an offer being accepted the property will only be removed from the auction and viewings stopped once contracts have successfully exchanged subject to the standard auction terms and payment of the buyers premium to Hollis Morgan. Can I bid on the telephone? If you cannot attend the auction (although we strongly advise you do) you can make a TELEPHONE or PROXY BID. This authorises the auctioneer to bid on your behalf up to a pre-set limit. Forms and relevant conditions are available to download with the online legal pack. A completed form, ID and two cheques (one for the 10% deposit and one for the Buyer's Administration Fee of £900) are required by the Auction Department at least two full working days before the auction. Should I have a survey? If you would like to arrange a survey or mortgage valuation of this Lot BEFORE the auction please instruct your appointed surveyor to contact Hollis Morgan and we will arrange access for them to inspect the property. Please note that buyers CANNOT attend the surveys and the surveyors are responsible for collecting and returning keys to the Hollis Morgan offices in Clifton.


Good Luck and Happy Bidding!
