When buying a property at auction and the gavel drops you have committed yourself to buying that property. You will have to put a 10% deposit down then you have 28 days to get the finance in place. We provide development finance to a wide range of investors, whether they be private individuals or property development companies: we’re here to help.
An investor wishing to take advantage of these opportunities can face challenges in raising finance. Either they are in a time-sensitive situation in which a 30-day application time frame is too long, or the property is not in a condition which allows for a mortgage to be raised against it.
As a result, buyers look to alternative debt-structuring methods, with Auction Finance offering a solution to the funding gap.

Q: How Does A Property Auction Work?
A; There are two ways that exchange, and completion can take place at a property auction.
The traditional method of auction: if you successfully bid at an auction that uses the traditional method, you’ll exchange contracts and pay a 10% deposit straight after the auction finishes. You’ll then have 28 days to complete.
The modern method of auction: if you make a successful bid, you don’t have to exchange contracts immediately. Instead, you pay a fee to reserve the property, which is non-refundable if you pull out of the purchase. The reservation fee varies but will normally be a percentage of your bid. You then have 56 days after the auction date to exchange contracts and complete the purchase, which would give you more time to arrange a mortgage.
