A structural survey is highly recommended when buying any property. This should be completed prior to the auction.

AMV (Advised Minimum Value)
Price at which the property is advertised for sale prior to the Auction
Price set on the day of auction that must be reached in order for the property to sell. The Auctioneer will not disclose the reserve price prior to the auction. Once the reserve price is reached during the auction, the Auctioneer will indicate to the floor that the property is now for sale. If the reserve price is not met, the Auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw the property from sale.
If your bid is accepted at Auction you are legally bound to purchase the property. The vendor’s solicitor will be in possession of the sale contracts for the property, which are signed immediately after the auction and the purchaser must pay 10% of the AMV on Auction Day.
If a property fails to reach the reserve price, the Auctioneer will withdraw the property from the market. At this stage, the Auctioneer reserves the right to deal with the highest bidder only, immediately after the auction to see if a sale can be agreed. It is important to note that if you are not the highest bidder the Auctioneer has no obligation to accept offers from you following the auction.
If your bid is accepted at auction, you are legally bound to purchase the property. Therefore you need to come to the auction prepared with your due diligence completed in advance.
