Yes. If you would like to have a survey
carried out or need one to obtain a
mortgage, you can arrange to have one
done prior to the auction.
l need a mortgage, can l buy at auction?
Providing your lender has agreed that
the property you would like to bid on is
mortgagable it is possible to purchase
through auction. Please be aware the
properties marked with (U) & (UR) will
exchange immediately so you must have
your finances in place prior to bidding.

A reservation fee applies to any properties
Marked (CR) or (UR). The seller has elected to
sell their property under these terms and
conditions and an additional fee applies
separate from the purchase price.

Once the hammer has fallen on &
properties you are legally bound to
complete the sale. With & lots you
would forfeit your deposit but would not be
bound to continue with the purchase.
What is a legal pack?
A legal pack is produced by the seller’s
solicitors for interested applicants to view
ahead of bidding. These packs will be
available on all lots marked (U) & (UR) .
They contain copies of searches, title
documents, leases, special conditions and
any other necessary documents to allow
immediate exchange of contracts.
