Modern Method of Auction:
The Modern Method of Auction is a conditional auction arrangement, if the reserve is met or exceeded and the auction timer reaches zero, an exclusivity period begins in relation to that property. The successful bidder is contractually required to exchange on the property on or before the expiry of 20 working days from the end of the auction. All properties sold by conditional auction are sold subject to a reservation fee which is clearly stated in the terms and conditions. The reservation fee is payable in addition to the final purchase price and is received on a non-refundable basis, subject to the terms of the Reservation Agreement. To ensure that the successful bidder proceeds, the winning buyer is automatically charged a reservation fee and agrees prior to making their bid, to pay any outstanding amount of the property reservation fee immediately at the end of the auction. If by the seller’s act, exchange does not occur on or before the expiry of 20 working days from the end of the auction, the reservation fee shall be fully refunded to the buyer. If the buyer fails to exchange on or before the expiry of 20 working days from the end of the auction, they will forfeit the full amount of the reservation fee. Fees paid to the Auctioneer may be considered as part of the chargeable consideration for the property and be included in the calculation for stamp duty liability. Further clarification on this must be sought from your legal representative.

Guide Price:
The Guide Price amount specified is an indication of each seller's minimum expectation. It is not necessarily the amount at which the property will sell. Each property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the property will not be sold) which we expect will be set no more than 10% above the Guide Price amount.
