Allowing the additional time to conclude missives 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 of 3.5% to a minimum of 3750.00 plus VAT = (4,500.00) which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. Please note: The reservation fee is paid in addition to the final negotiated selling price and is paid on A non-refundable basis.

Copies of the 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 or requested from our Auction Department.
