Network Auctions showed they really do sell properties with ‘No Reserve’ when a parcel of land sold under the online hammer at just £51 in their 21st May auction. The land situated at Meadow Way and Orchard Way, Reigate, Surrey comprised 0.62 acres of highway, paths, verges and part of a roundabout in the popular residential areas.

The auctioneer’s addendum was a note of caution for any would-be bidders: ‘We are advised by the local authority highways department the title comprises land that is publicly adopted, buyers should make their own enquiries in this regard.’

But plucky bidders

Bond Wolfe Auctions, the UK’s fastest growing auction business, will be back with a bang on Wednesday 24th June with an online livestreamed auction expected to see more than 100 lots go under the hammer.

Chief executive Gurpreet Bassi said they had held back from announcing their first auction since lockdown was announced in March as they wanted to be sure they could offer their full appraisal, viewing and marketing services.

“We took the view early on that it was unreasonable to expect our clients to buy, sight unseen, and so deliberately delayed announcing any firm plans.

Auction House London held their second-ever live-stream auction during the lockdown last week (Wednesday 6 May), which delivered a stunning 84% success rate, and included the highest number of registered bidders for a single lot that Auctioneer Andrew Binstock has ever seen.

49 lots were sold from the 58 offered on the day, with bidding taking place online, by phone or by proxy, raising a total of almost £10m (£9,946,750). But it was the very first lot – a one-bedroom, ground floor flat in Redhill, Surrey - which became the story of the sale.

Andrew Binstock said: “There were astonishing and

A notorious farm in Bacup which made national headlines after animals were found living in squalor is to be sold by auction.   

The current occupier of Trice Barn Farm, off Bacup Old Road, was served notice to vacate last year but remains living there, making it impossible to view the farm. But despite this, auctioneers say potential buyers are lining up to bid on the property when it is sold by SDL Auctions this month.  One reason may be the guide price. At just £50,000+, the 80-acre site represents excellent value.   

Andy Thompson, head of auctions North West, said: “The farm and its

During the lockdown month of April, it offered 342 lots and sold 220 of them, at a success rate of 64.3%, and raised over £20.7m in the process (£20,778,051).

Commenting on the group’s recent performance, Founding Director Roger Lake said: “Despite the unprecedented circumstances we’re all experiencing, we are currently delivering over 60% of our normal level of sales. Bidder numbers have been strong

The SDL Auctions team pulled together in a marathon team effort for the company’s first ever national property auction yesterday, which raised £7.7 million for sellers. 

 Held behind closed doors to maintain social distancing, SDL Auctions’ first national property auction saw managing director and auctioneer Andrew Parker work his way through a catalogue of 115 lots over a mammoth seven-hour session. 

 After a short delay due to a rush of last-minute bidding requests, the auction got off to a lively start with some eager bidding for a house in Nottingham.
