Bidding is easy
Please get to the venue early – our auctions start promptly. There is no need to register to bid for a Lot unless we
advise via our website. We strongly recommend you attend the sale and bid in person.
Our Auctioneer will introduce each Lot and refer to any changes. Bids are invited and will rise in increments set by
the Auctioneer. Make your bid by clearly raising your hand.
Pre-auction bids must be made via Goldings Auctions NOT
the Vendors’ Solicitors. These are likely to still be subject to competitive bidding, as where possible, buyers who have
registered for Legal Packs will be given an opportunity to bid.
NB. Vendors are unlikely to consider pre-auction bids prior to the completion of the full marketing and/or viewing process.
Going once...going twice...SOLD
All Lots are offered for sale subject to an undisclosed reserve price. Please do your research – if you have any doubts,
don’t bid! Property will be ‘knocked down’ to the highest bidder – it’s yours!
In readiness for preparing your contract:
Successful bidders will be asked to fill out a buyers’ form; we just need your name, address, contact and solicitor details.
We will also take your 2 forms of ID.
When the hammer falls
As the highest bidder at/above reserve price, if the hammer falls to you:
- You have bought that property unconditionally
- A legal and binding contract is created
- You are legally committed
- Contracts will immediately be exchanged
In some instances, your new property is at your immediate insurable risk. This can be confirmed via the “Special Conditions
of Sale” document contained within the Legal Pack. Where appropriate, we advise that you take out buildings insurance
cover, which can be done immediately after the sale.
