The auction for this property will be conducted online through our online-bidding platform. This is a â€œTimed Auctionâ€, so there are no other lots being sold alongside this property.
The timeslot for the auction is displayed on SDL Auctionsâ€™ website. To view this, search for the property on their website. Then click onto the property to view the property details. The time remaining to bid and end date of the auction is displayed on the page.
You are required to undertake identity checks before you can be authorised to bid. You must also provide your payment details. If you do not provide this information, your registration will not be processed.
When you place your bid, you are deemed to have agreed to SDL Auctionsâ€™ Buyers Terms (England & Wales) which are available on SDL Auctions website.
Auction type- Unconditional with Variable Fee
If you are the highest bidder, you must exchange legally binding contracts for the sale when the auction for the property comes to an end. You must then pay the applicable fees and deposit. You must complete the sale within 20 business days unless the Special Conditions of Sale contained within the Legal Pack state otherwise.
The following non-refundable fees apply:
â€¢ Buyerâ€™s Fee- payable on exchange of contracts. This is calculated as a percentage of the actual purchase price of the property. Either:
(a) 4.8% (including VAT) of the purchase price, for properties up to and including £250,000
(b) 3.6% (including VAT) of the purchase price for properties sold for over £250,000
The Buyerâ€™s Fee is subject always to a minimum of £6,000 (including VAT). The Buyerâ€™s Fee does not contribute to the purchase price.
On exchange of contracts, you must pay a non-refundable deposit equal to 5% of the actual purchase price of the property, subject to a minimum of £5,000. The deposit contributes towards the purchase price.
When you register to bid, you will be prompted to provide your payment details to SDL Auctions. In the event that you are the winning bidder, your card will automatically be charged a proportion of the Buyerâ€™s Fee & Deposit. The payment will be calculated based on the guide price of the property, in line with the fee scale described above. Where the actual purchase price is higher than the guide price, you will be required to pay the difference immediately after the end of the auction, which can be paid by debit card or bank transfer. Payment by cash or cheque will not be accepted.
Example: You win the bid on a property with a guide price of £150,000, but the actual purchase price is £170,000. At this point your bid is successful you will be charged as follows:
â€¢ Buyerâ€™s Fee of £7,200- 4.8% of guide price
â€¢ Deposit of £7,500- 5% of the guide price
As the actual purchase price amounted to £170,000, after the auction, you will be required to pay the following additional amounts on top of the initial payment:
â€¢ £960 for Buyerâ€™s Fee shortfall (£8160 due as 4.8% of actual purchase price)
â€¢ £1,000 for Deposit shortfall (£8500 due as 5% of actual purchase price)
