Use our property search to find auction properties available
Buying your property through auction has never been easier or quicker thanks to the Modern Method of Auction.
Traditionally a market limited to cash ready investors, the Modern Method has evolved auctions to be inclusive to a wider variety of buyers and sellers. Namely, it offers fixed yet realistic timescales (an average 28-56 days) to accommodate the typical residential buyer looking to arrange a mortgage. With the Modern Method, the successful buyer can reserve their property until exchange of contracts. This allows buyers and sellers alike the time to arrange their finances and carry out due diligence.
You can bid online, in-branch, over the phone or at one of our public events. Our online system allows you to view the current bid, the amount of bidders and a live countdown to the end of the auction. You can enter your bids manually or allow our ‘Maximum Bidding’ function to do this for you. Set the minimum and maximum price you’re willing to spend and we will bid on your behalf.
Through the Modern Method, as the successful buyer, you will be required to pay either a Reservation Fee or Reservation Deposit. The property is then reserved exclusively to you. You are then required to unconditionally exchange contracts and complete the transaction within 56 days.
Through the Traditional Method contracts are exchanged immediately, with completion taking place within 28 days. Complete security is provided but this method is more suited to the property professional. We will require a 10% deposit paid on a non refundable basis and in some cases a reservation fee as well.
Once you have reserved your property, we will go through an identification and verification process with you and you will need to instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf. The sales file will then be passed to our Sales Progression Team, who will provide updates throughout the process. You will have 28 to 56 days in which to complete the purchase.
