  • Guide price and reserve price

    All the properties to be sold have been valued by the Auctioneer and Land and Property Services, to provide a reserve price to ensure that Council assets are not sold below their market value. The reserve price, or minimum price, is not published or released. In order to encourage interest in the properties the Auctioneer provides a guide price, which is not unrealistic or misleading.
  • Buying property

    There is a great deal of helpful guidance available within the Auctioneer's catalogue and on their web site. It is essential that you read all the information.
  • Inspect the property

    All viewing arrangements are made through the Auctioneer and as such you should contact them directly.
  • Legal information

    The Auctioneer will make a legal package of information available. This will be placed on the Auctioneer's web site. A hard copy may also be made available, but this will be subject to a charge. Details of the Council's solicitors will be made available. Contact details are provided within the auction catalogue for any legal or planning queries.
  • Absentee bids

    You do not need to actually attend the auction, and special arrangements can be made for you to bid by telephone or proxy (in writing); but you must first discuss this with the Auctioneer and make arrangements prior to the auction if you are unable to attend.

Further general information can be obtained from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
