Traditional auction

Exchange occurs at the end of the auction. This means that if the reserve is met or exceeded and the auction timer reaches zero, the successful bidder is legally obliged to pay the purchase price and the seller will be legally obliged to sell the property. To ensure that the successful bidder proceeds, the buyer is automatically charged a holding deposit, which is held in a secure client account, pursuant to the terms of a holding deposit agreement.

* Pricing information

The Guide Price amount specified is an indication of each seller's minimum expectation. It is not necessarily the amount at which the property will sell. Each property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the property will not be sold) which we expect will be set no more than 10% above the Guide Price amount.
