Webinar on demand

Awkward auction activities

Recorded 19 May 2017

  • Imagine that on auction day you only have one registered bidder? What happens? Do you have to run the auction?
  • What is the law surrounding conducting the auction on the day, calling for bids, passing in? 
  • What can happen if you don’t run the auction on auction day but you sell the property by way of an exchange of contracts? In this scenario, what do selling agents do and why / what motivates them? 
  • What do you do if a buyer has an authorised bidder register on their behalf but then the buyer themselves turns up on auction day and registers to bid? Is this legal, is this collusion?
  • What are the different types of bidding strategies that buyers use?

Run by two leading auctioneers, this free Member webinar is designed to give auctioneers, sales agents and buyers’ agents a better understanding about how unusual circumstances can best be handled.
