How to buy through Auction

Book a viewing

Call us to book in a viewing on 01293 528575. It maybe that we have one or two open days for the property in question.

Ensure your finances are in order

Make sure you have a mortgage in principle, just as you would buying through private treaty. This will give you an idea of your maximum budget. Explain to your lender the property is being bought at auction as, upon the fall of the hammer, the buyer will pay a deposit and 2% +VAT (subject to a minimum of £5000 +VAT) buyers’ premium, and contracts are exchanged.

Attend viewings

Bring anyone you may think you need with you and quiz us on any questions you may have. We are here to help.

Study the Legal Pack

We will email you the relevant legal pack for the property you have an interest in which will include the local searches, title deeds and an information form on the list of fixtures and fittings. If you feel necessary, you may instruct a solicitor to go over this if you are unsure.

Commission a survey

This is only necessary when applying for a mortgage and you are not a cash buyer.

Attend the auction

Register to bid with a Town & Country representative before entering the room, you are then ready to bid and enjoy the Auction experience.

Winning bid

If successful, once the Auction has ended you will see a T&C representative to pay your deposit and premium. From here you will complete no more than 28 days later.

Congratulations you have bought at Auction!
