You may send a proxy to the auction or you can attend the auction online.  Please provide 4 working days notice.

I’ve always inspected properties before purchase. Can I get an inspection of a property I wish to purchase before auction?

In 99% of cases yes!  Our sellers are keen to sell to you.  As with normal sales, a little bit of negotiation on dates and times is all it needs to allow for inspection.

How do I get property deeds, surveyor’s reports etc?

This is undertaken during our process of due diligence and we make sure that any property we take to auction is legally viable.
