In The Room Bidding

Join us for our traditional ‘in room’ auction

Join us on the day for the full auction experience. Being creatures of habit, it can be unsettling to try something new no matter how big the benefits but here at Connect UK Auctions we are here to make property buying fun.

Please complete and return the completed Bidders Registration Form, together with your accompanying deposit and proof of identity to [email protected] or bring all stated with you to the auction venue

Car parking is complimentary and upon entrance to the auction waiting area we ask that you input your car registration into the devices provided.

Hot drinks and nibbles are available before the commencement of the auction for you to help yourself to as well as the auction catalogue with any up to date or last-minute changes included. – This may include final amendments for each property. It is important that you read this document before bidding to see if there is any significant new information. The addendum forms part of the contract of sale.

Team members will be on hand at this time to answer any questions you may have at the time as we’d like to ensure your auction experience is a positive one.

The auction will start promptly at the time printed in the catalogue. Do not be phased if you see a camera man and the camera set up, this is purely for the website live streaming of Connect Realtime© and the ‘at home,’ bidders.

Our presenter will introduce the auction and welcome you all, as well as our ‘at home’ viewing to the property and land sale. The auctioneer will then make a number of announcements about the auction procedure. He will also announce any withdrawn and pre-sold lots. Lots are almost always offered in the order in which they appear in the catalogue.

If you are bidding you will have received an auction paddle, specified by number, in which a short raise will notify the auctioneer of your bid.

Our presenter will introduce each lot and refer to any last-minute changes. The current lot number is usually displayed on a large screen next to the auctioneer along with the lot address.

The auctioneer will then invite bids at a particular level and you can make this bid by raising your assigned paddle or hand. You will notice the bids logged and shown on the screen and they will tell you whether the last bid has come from the room or from internet bidders at home.

The auctioneer will regulate the bidding increments until all the bidding is finished. He will give everyone a few moments warning before bringing down his gavel at which point the property is sold to the highest bidder. As soon as the gavel comes down a legal and binding contract is formed between the vendor and the winning bidder.

If you are the highest bidder on a lot then firstly, congratulations on buying at auction. After the fall of the gavel you will be moved to another room to sign the exchange of contracts. This will be sent to both your solicitor as well as the sellers.

After providing you solicitors details as well as your personal details you will be asked to pay the deposit and buyers premium on the specific lot. At this point you are legally bound and the amount will be payable by debit card or bank transfer.

Completion will usually take place 28 working days later (or as varied by the Special Conditions of Sale) under the supervision of your solicitor. Please do not leave the auction room without taking your signed contract. As soon as the hammer falls there is a binding contract of sale. The property is at your insurable risk from this point. Please ensure that you arrange your building insurance immediately after the sale.

If a lot does not sell and you wish to buy it, please approach one of our staff and register your interest with us before you leave the room.
Remember, registering for any auction means you have read and agree to the terms and conditions of the sale.

My wife and I were delighted with the service provided by Connect UK Auctions. Our house sold prior to the auction for an excellent price. Rob Jenkins was very professional and communicated well with all parties involved. A very smooth transaction.
