Buying and selling at auction

As soon as the auctioneer's hammer falls and contracts are exchanged, both buyer and seller are committed – so it's good to be prepared beforehand. Our property team has a huge amount of experience acting for both buyers and sellers at auction, and will make sure you're ready for the day.

Sellers: we'll work with the auction house to prepare a comprehensive auction pack. Prospective buyers will have all the information they need about your property in advance.

Buyers: we'll review the auction pack(s) and prepare a Property Report, just for you. You'll be able to make an informed decision on whether or not to bid, and how much to spend.

After the auction, we'll make sure all deadlines are met and the process is completed quickly and efficiently.

To start making your preparations, contact our team for more information.
