Interested parties should note that our On Line Auctions are Traditional Auctions (not to be confused with Modern Method of Auctioneering ). The fall of the hammer creates a binding contract. There is no reservation fee payable on the part of the buyer.
An indication of the sellers current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or a range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual but not always the case that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. The guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall or as a single figure. The reserve price would not normally be higher than the guide price. A guide price is different to a reserve (see below). Both the guide price and reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
This is the sellers minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer.
The local authority is Mansfield District Council. The property is listed within Band C for Council Tax purposes.
