Proxy and telephone bidding

Bid via Proxy/telephone

If you are unable to attend the auction sale, you can bid by telephone (in real time while the auction is taking place) or by proxy (where you specify your maximum bid in writing and the auctioneer bids on your behalf). In each case we need a completed registration form and proof of identity and funds. Once you have successfully registered, we will send you your online registration form to be completed and returned. Once this is done and we have completed our checks, including AML (Anti-money laundering) checks we can approve your bidding.

Bid by Proxy

Here you will advise a representative as to your maximum bid, and the auctioneer will bid on your behalf up to your maximum. They will always endeavour to secure the property for you, either at, or below your maximum bid if possible. If the bidding in the room exceeds your maximum, then you proxy bid would end.

Bid by Telephone

This will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis and a representative will bid on your instruction. You will be able to hear the auctioneer in the background and will also be able to watch the auction live in action through our live stream via Connect Realtime©. A representative will call you a few minutes before the specified lot so please be ready.

Highest bidder

If you are the highest bidder on a lot then firstly, congratulations on buying at auction. You will have already signed to say that you are happy for us to sign the memorandum of sale on your behalf to allow the exchange of contracts after the fall of the ‘virtual gavel.’

After this has been done one of our team will be in touch once the auction has finished to take payment of the lot deposit and buyers’ premium. Once this has been completed contracts will be sent to your solicitor as well as the sellers with completion usually to take place 28 working days later (or as varied by the Special Conditions of Sale) under the supervision of your solicitor.

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.

Unsold lots

If a lot does not sell and you wish to buy it, please call the office and register your interest on 0800 448 0100 (FREEPHONE).

Remember, registering for any auction means you have read and agree to the terms and conditions of the sale.

Seller FAQs

Why auction?

Three reasons: Maximum price, speed and security.

Will I get full price for my property?

Yes. Selling at auction always means you will get the true value of any property. Yes the buyer is paying your fees but that does NOT mean you will get less for your property – you are simply saving a sales fee.

What properties are sold at auction?

Everything and anything. We have sold terraces, bungalows, unique properties, family detached houses, penthouse apartments, commercial units, businesses, new build properties and plots on behalf of builders.

Can I control the selling price?

Yes, you have complete control when setting the reserve price.
