Unconditional Online Auction Procedure

Every online bidder on SDL Auctions must first create an account at This is a very quick and simple process. In order to bid, you will need to be authorised for money laundering purposes, this will be carried out at the registration stage. This check will leave a soft footprint on your credit report (but it should not affect your credit rating). The registration process also requires card details to be entered, however the card will not be processed unless you are the successful bidder.

Once you have registered, you will be able to search, download legal documents, arrange site viewings and contact the Auctioneers and the solicitors if you have queries on the property.

If the reserve is met or exceeded when the auction timer ends, the successful bidder is charged a 5% deposit (subject to a minimum fee of £5000) and exchange takes place. At this point, you will be legally obliged to buy the property for the full purchase price. The deposit contributes towards the purchase price.

The sale of each Lot is subject to a reservation fee of 4.8% Inc VAT or 4.2% Inc VAT in London, subject to a minimum of £6,000 Inc VAT. The reservation fee does not contribute towards the purchase price.

Therefore we will automatically charge you a minimum fee of £11,000, (using the payment details provided at the registration stage) if you are the successful bidder, as payment towards a reservation fee and deposit. Where applicable, you will be required to pay any outstanding amounts of the reservation fee immediately after the end of the auction, which can be paid by debit card or bank transfer. This will be specified in the reservation contract.

By placing the bid, you are authorising the auctioneer to sign the auction contract on your behalf.
