Awkward Auction Activities Part 2 Member: FREE 15 June 2018, 10am-11am

You will hear from Jesse Davidson, James Pratt and Briannan Davis on part two of what to do when the unexpected happens at your auction. In this follow up webinar, the team will delve in deeper into the following topics to provide you with more helpful information. 

In particular the team will cover:

  • Imagine that on auction day you only have one registered bidder? What happens? Do you have to run the auction?
  • What is the law surrounding conducting the auction on the day, calling for bids, passing in? 
  • What can happen if you don’t run the auction on auction day but you sell the property by way of an exchange of contracts? In this scenario, what do selling agents do and why / what motivates them? 
  • What do you do if a buyer has an authorised bidder register on their behalf but then the buyer themselves turns up on auction day and registers to bid? Is this legal, is this collusion? 
  • What are the different types of bidding strategies that buyers use?
