Consumer Protection Regulations

Whilst we endeavour to make our sales details accurate and reliable, if there is any point which is of particular interest to you please contact the office and we will be pleased to confirm the position for you, particularly if you are contemplating travelling some distance to view the property.

Guide Price: An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price of range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price: The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction

Sales Prior

It is possible that properties may be withdrawn/sold prior to the Auction. It is advisable for interested parties to register their interest with us and it is their responsibility to check with the Auctioneers whether a particular lot will be offered, or if it has been withdrawn.

Further details are available from the Agent. It will be assumed that you have read and considered the Conditions of Sale and any other relevant documents for the Lot (s) you are interested in before the day of the Auction, that you have shown them to your professional advisors and taken their professional advice before bidding.

If a potential purchaser is in any doubt they should seek advice from their own professional advisors.
