AGENTS NOTES: Important Information
The property has had a recent structural survey and it has been pointed out that the rear elevation extension is rotating away from the main building and shows physical evidence of structural movement consistent with subsidence.

The downward rotation movement detected at foundation level has resulted in diagonal tapered cracks and vertical cracking extending from the wall junction possibly consistent with light strip foundations attached to the main building or soil drainage deficiencies.

Any potential buyer must satisfy themselves by commissioning their own survey/structural report before exchanging contracts.

For sale by Unconditional Online Auction.

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.

Auction Fees
The following non-refundable fees apply:
Buyer’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 Buyer’s Fee is subject always to a minimum of £6,000 (including VAT). The Buyer’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.

Payment Method:
When you register to bid, you will be prompted to provide your payment details to Martin Bond Auctions In the event that you are the winning bidder, your card will automatically be charged a proportion of the Buyer’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:
Buyer’s Fee of £7,200- 4.8% of guide price
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:
£960 for Buyer’s Fee shortfall (£8160 due as 4.8% of actual purchase price)
£1,000 for Deposit shortfall (£8500 due as 5% of actual purchase price)
