Planning Information

Buyer's Premium

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is always payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.

Guide Price

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price

The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Surveys And Valuations

If you would like to arrange a survey or mortgage valuation of this Lot before the auction please instruct your appointed surveyor to contact Hollis Morgan and we will arrange access for them to inspect the property. Please note that buyers cannot attend the surveys and the surveyors are responsible for collecting and returning keys to the Hollis Morgan offices in Clifton.
