I WANT TO BUY AT AUCTION

Our modern method of auction is geared to sell to investors or regular home buyers either with cash or a mortgage

We offer properties for sale via The Great North Property Auction which is operated by the Newcastle based independent auction house IAM-SOLD Ltd

ON-LINE AUCTION

In general our auction properties are initially offered in an online auction which operates much like e-Bay

You are able to register and bid online or if you prefer a more personal approach you can make a bid direct to any Dowen branch or The Great North Property Auction office in Newcastle

LIVE AUCTION ROOM

Properties are also offered at our regular live auction events where you make your bids to an auctioneer in the auction room or by proxy or by telephone whilst the event is taking place

BUY WITH A MORTGAGE OR CASH

At the Great North Property Auction you can buy with cash or a mortgage

Our auction is geared to sell to investors or regular home buyers

DEPOSIT OR RESERVATION FEE (Buyers Premium)

Our properties are offered for purchase by way of 2 methods

  1. Where the property is subject to payment of a deposit once a bid is accepted
  2. Where the property is subject to payment of a reservation fee (buyers premium) once a bid is accepted

Whichever is due, be it a deposit or reservation fee (buyers premium) it will be clearly shown on the specific terms and conditions in the sales documentation for the property prepared by The Great North Property Auction

You should check the amount due before bidding on any property as the amount can vary

NB: The reservation fee (buyers premium) is payable over and above the bid price accepted and covers estate agency & auction house professional services costs

NB: The deposit is inclusive part of the bid price accepted. The property owner pays estate agency & auction house professional services costs

If a buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not meet the auction terms and conditions, the reservation fee (buyers premium) or deposit is generally non refundable

If the sale falls through due to an act of the vendor, the reservation fee or deposit will be refunded in full

BUYER INFORMATION PACK

We will not take any bids until we have prepared and made ready a Buyer Information Pack which contains information relevant to the property being offered for auction

We strongly advise buyers to read all information in this pack before making a bid as well as taking any legal advice they feel they need

Buyers will be required to pay £200 as a contribution towards the preparation of the Auction Information Pack if their bid is accepted

BUYER BENEFITS
