  • If your selling then typically there’s an upfront catalogue entry fee ranging from £300 – 500, this is payable for registering the property for auction and is non-refundable should the property failed to sell in the auction room. Should the property fail to sell then generally you’ll find that most regional auctioneers will not charge for re-entry into the next auction. Sales commission rates vary from region to region and auction room to auction room but expect to pay between 2 – 3% of the sale price. If your buying expect to pay an administration charge of circa £200 plus check the special conditions of sale to see if you have to pay a buyer’s premium.

  • Hi, if you are looking to auction in our area then it would be 0%.

  • @PeterHeron, thanks for information, 0% for selling sounds too good to be true! I've been told that some auctions load all the costs onto the buyer in the form of a 'Buyers Premium', which I am told on the face of it seems great for the seller but the downside is the factors in the cost when bidding.....I guess as the saying goes 'there is no such thing as a free lunch!' :-)
