Auctioneer's Comments

This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. 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.

  • A non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% of the final agreed sale price including VAT - this is subject to a minimum of £6,000.00 including VAT - which reserves the property from sale by securing the transaction and takes the property off the market. 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 IAM Sold.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
