Our team are looking forward to getting back to the auction room soon, but in the meantime they will continue to be live-streamed via our website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only (you will not be able to attend the auction in person).  The deadline to register to bid is 12noon the day prior to the auction and you must register for each auction you wish to participate in.

You will need to provide two forms of identification as well as securely submit your debit card details for payment of our minimum deposit and administration fee.

To register to bid please click here.

If you are bidding on behalf of your partner, family member, a company or someone else or bidding as a non UK citizen please read the information below for further advice.

On behalf of your partner, family member or joint owner

If you are bidding on behalf of a partner, family member, joint owner or someone else you will need to include their details on the remote bidding form and provide 2 forms of identification for yourself and for each person who wishes to purchase the property.  You also need to provide a letter of authorisation, signed by each person, authorising you to bid on their behalf.   As the bidder you take full responsibility and if you don’t provide all the necessary documentation, the property will go in your sole name and you will be legally obliged to complete the purchase.

On behalf of a company

You can bid on behalf of a company if you are one of the directors and have more than 50.1% share capital.  If you own  50% or less share capital or you’re acting as an agent/employee on behalf of the company, you will need to compete the remote bidding form and provide a letter of authorisation, signed by each shareholder, authorising you to bid.  You must also provide 2 forms of identification for yourself and for all shareholders as well as your Certificate of Incorporation and Company Registration Number.

Non UK citizen/resident

You can still buy a property at auction if you are a non UK citizen or resident.  Wherever possible, you should use funds from a UK bank account (you will need to provide a recent bank statement as proof) and appoint a UK Solicitor who will need to email us at remotebids@bondwolfe.com to confirm that they have been appointed to act on your behalf. You must also provide 2 forms of identification and you will need to transfer 10% of your maximum bid (subject to a minimum of £5,000) and administration fee of £1,440 inc. Vat which must clear in our client account prior to the auction sale.  This will be refunded if you are unsuccessful which can take up to 10 working days.  If you don’t have a UK bank account please contact our team on 0121 312 1212 to discuss your individual circumstances.

Online auction

Properties offered via our online auction can be found within the properties page or by performing a property search. They will be indicated by an ‘online auction’ flag. You must create an account and register your interest. We will undertake an Anti-Money Laundering (*AML) check and take your debit card details for payment of the deposit and administration fee.  Once approved, you can bid for the property.  (*The AML check will leave a soft footprint on your credit report but it should not affect your credit rating).
