If you’re looking to purchase a property by auction and you’re not a cash buyer, it’s important to consider your finance options. Purchasing a property via auction can be a much faster process than the open market, and so becoming familiar with how you can fund your purchase as early as possible is key.
Once you have placed a successful bid and the gavel falls, you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the property. Whether this is a conditional or unconditional sale will determine how soon you will need to pay the sum due. You will however, need to pay a deposit on the day.
Having your finances in order means that if you are the winning bidder, you will have full peace of mind that your funds are sorted and ready to go to avoid coming up against obstacles throughout the process. Luckily, we’ve partnered with a leading organisation to help you secure funding for your property in a safe and efficient way.

Their dedicated team of experts are well-versed in this area, and have extensive experience working with prospective buyers before, during and after the auction to help you turn the funds around within a tight time frame.
