*DEFINITION OF GUIDE & RESERVE PRICE
All properties are sold subject to a reserve price, which is the minimum price the seller is willing to accept and is confidential between the seller and Auctioneer. The guide price is only an indication as to where the reserve is currently set and not necessarily the Auctioneers expectation of what it will sell for. If the guide price is a bracket figure, then the reserve price cannot be higher than the top end of the guide price, if the guide price is a fixed figure, then the reserve cannot be more than 10% above the guide price. The guide price and reserve price can be subject to change at any time up to and including the auction day and, properties can often sell for substantially more than the quoted guide price.
