We do not require the buyer to exchange contracts immediately; however, from the date the draft contract for sale is received by the Buyer's solicitor, the buyer has 56 days in which to complete the transaction; whilst using every endeavour to exchange contracts within the first 28 days. Allowing the additional time to exchange contracts means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance.

The Reservation Fee is paid in addition to the final negotiated selling price. A non-refundable Buyer Information Pack fee of £200.00 including VAT towards the preparation cost of the pack, if the Buyer Information Pack has been produced and provided by iamsold. The Documents in the pack can then be used by your solicitor during the conveyancing stage of the purchase. It is recommended that you view the Buyer Information Pack before agreeing to your purchase. Fees paid to the Auctioneer may be considered as part of the chargeable consideration for the property and be included in the calculation for stamp duty liability. Further clarification for this must be sought from your legal representative. The buyer will be required to sign a Reservation Agreement to confirm acceptance of the terms prior to solicitors being instructed. A sample copy of the Reservation Agreement and all terms and conditions can be found in the Buyer Information Pack, which can be downloaded from the auction section of our website, or requested from our Auction Department.
