For The Awareness Of Buyers – PLEASE NOTE:
1: A guide price (to include a range of prices), is not an indication of the anticipated eventual selling price or a valuation; it is an indication of the minimum price ( “the Reserve” ) at which (or range of prices within which) the seller might be prepared to sell. The eventual sale price can and frequently does, exceed the guide price.
2: Where a range is given, the Reserve will sit within that range and will not exceed the top end of the range. Where a single figure Guide Price is given, the Reserve will be within 10%, upwards or downwards, of that figure.
3: The guide price may be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. The latest published guide price (or range of prices) is displayed on our website and you should check the website regularly for updates and on the day of the auction.
4: All guide prices are quoted "subject to contract".
5: Please note the guide price for the Lot does not include:
- any Buyers' Fee charged by the auctioneers;
- VAT on the sale price;
- SDLT or any other Government taxes;
- additional costs and fees charged by the seller or third parties that might apply to some Lots and/or some buyers.
6: The reserve price is the minimum price at which the Lot can be sold.
7: Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the advertised guide prices are up-to-date. it is possible that the reserve price set for any Lot may exceed the previously quoted guide price. This is because the seller may fix the final reserve price just before the Lot is offered for sale and you should check the website regularly for updates and on the day of the auction.
8: Buyers should note that some sellers will require the buyer to contribute towards the sellers costs. This information is always shown within the individual Special Conditions of sale for each lot where applicable. Buyers/bidders at the auction will be expected to bid and purchase in full knowledge of this information, which is readily available from within the legal pack or upon request from the auction team present.
9: The buyer of each lot is deemed to purchase with full knowledge of the important notice to bidders, the Common Auction Conditions where applicable, the special conditions of sale and the addendum – Please do your due diligence, it is your responsibility to be fully aware of additional fees and charges.
