The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the purchaser to exchange contracts immediately, but grant 28 days to achieve exchange of contracts from the date the buyer's solicitor is in receipt of the draft contracts and a further 28 days thereafter to complete. Allowing the additional time to exchange on the property means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to put down a non- refundable Reservation Fee which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. The buyer will be required to sign an Acknowledgment of Reservation form and all terms and conditions can be found in the Legal Pack which can be downloaded for free from the auction section of our website
