Auction Method
The auction for this property will be conducted online through our online-bidding platform. This is a "Timed Auction", so there are no other lots being sold alongside this property.
The timeslot for the auction is displayed on SDL Property Auctions' website. To view this, search for the property via their website, then click onto the property to view the property details. The time remaining to bid, and end date of the auction, is displayed on the page.
You are required to undertake identity checks before you can be authorised to bid. You must also provide your payment details. If you do not provide this information, your registration will not be processed.
When you place your bid, you are deemed to have agreed to SDL Property Auctions' Buyers Terms (England & Wales) which are available to read on SDL Property Auctions' website.

Auction type - Conditional with Reservation Fee
If you are the highest bidder when the auction for the property comes to an end, you will enter into a reservation agreement with the seller. You must then pay the applicable reservation fee. You will then have 40 business days within which to exchange contracts and complete the sale, unless the Special Conditions of Sale contained within the Legal Pack specify a different time limit. If you fail to do so, you may lose your reservation fee. During the 40-business day reservation period, the seller is not able to accept other offers.

Auction Fees
The following non-refundable fees apply:
Reservation Fee- payable immediately when the auction ends. This is calculated as a percentage of the actual purchase price of the property. Either:
(a) 4.8% (including VAT) of the purchase price, for properties up to and including £250,000
(b) 3.6% (including VAT) of the purchase price for properties sold for over £250,000
The Reservation Fee is subject always to a minimum of £6,000 (including VAT). The Reservation Fee does not contribute to the purchase price.
There may be additional fees listed in the Special Conditions of Sale, which will be available to view within the Legal Pack. You must read the Special Conditions carefully before bidding. Any additional fees are included at the seller's discretion, not on the instruction of SDL Property Auctions, and will be in addition to any fees payable to us.  SDL Property Auctions has limited control over the content of the Special Conditions of Sale.

This property is listed under the Conditional with Reservation Fee sale method, therefore the deposit will be payable on exchange of contracts and executed via the solicitors. The amount to be paid will be listed in the Special Conditions of Sale.

Payment Method:
When you register to bid, you will be prompted to provide your payment details to SDL Property Auctions. In the event that you are the winning bidder, your card will automatically be charged a proportion of the Reservation Fee. The payment will be calculated based on the guide price of the property, in line with the fee scale described above. Where the actual purchase price is higher than the guide price, you will be required to pay the difference immediately after the end of the auction, which can be paid by debit card or bank transfer.  Payment by cash or cheque will not be accepted.

Example: You win the bid on a property with a guide price of £150,000, but the actual purchase price is £170,000. At this point your bid is successful you will be charged as follows:
Reservation fee of £7,200 – calculated as 4.8% of guide price - this will be charged immediately after the auction if you are the winning bidder.
As the actual purchase price amounted to £170,000, after the auction, you will be required to pay the following additional amounts on top of the initial payment:
£960 for Reservation Fee shortfall (£8160 due as 4.8% of actual purchase price)
