This is the most secure and quickest way to sell your property. It gives the buyer the
opportunity to carry out their due diligence prior to bidding.
You must provide a ‘legal pack’ prior to the auction, this contains all the information and
documents needed to exchange contracts. We have a dedicated team of solicitors who
can produce a pack for you or you can instruct your own legal representative.
Contracts are exchanged on the fall of the hammer, your purchaser is legally bound to
purchase your property and complete within 28 days.
There is no need for a legal pack; on the fall of the hammer a non-refundable deposit or
reservation fee is collected from the buyer to secure the sale. There are 28 days in which to
exchange contracts and a further 28 days to complete the sale. Keith Pattinson created the
conditional method of sale 25 years ago. It was an innovation that has grown in popularity.
You also have the option to sell through the Unconditional or Conditional routes without
any auction or estate agency fees. An additional reservation fee is collected from the buyer
allowing us to give you the full auction advertising and marketing without any costs to you.
