Clive Emson offers a fantastic opportunity by using the modern method of the auction process to pick up a bargain.

All properties upon which Clive Emson are instructed are offered for sale in the auction catalogue.
The 20-25,000 full-colour catalogues produced for each of their auctions are available either by post or through a network of over 850 estate agency outlets throughout Southern England.
Clive Emson marketing is supported by more estate agency offices than any other auctioneers’ practice.
In addition, lot details, catalogue downloads, viewings and legal documentation are available through their website.
Buyers can seek advice and information on any upcoming properties like guide price figures, reserve price or viewing dates for property for sale.
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, Clive Emson has been operating by the online process until further notice.

A guide price may change at any time. Lots may be sold above or below the guide price, and we cannot accept responsibility for their accuracy.
Clive Emson Reserve Prices
All lots, unless stated in the catalogue, are subject to a Reserve price. This is the minimum price at which the seller has approved the auctioneer to sell.
The bidding must reach or exceed the reserve price for the auctioneer to be able to sell. The reserve price is confidential.
It is set by the seller in consultation with Clive Emson before the auction day and may be subject to change right up to the last day.
The auctioneer reserves the right to accept bids from the vendor up to and including the reserve value.
Pre-Auction Offers Offers must be in writing and will only be considered if the lot has been viewed and the legal documentation inspected.
Pre-auction bids are based on an immediate exchange of auction contracts upon acceptance by the seller.
Any offer will be assumed to be your best and final offer.
The auction house cannot guarantee that you will be invited to increase your bid in the event of an alternative; the fair offer is received before exchange.
Finance & Mortgages
It is essential to arrange finance before the auction and all surveys, valuations, and inspection before the bidding.
Unable to Attend
Most property auctions due to COVID-19 are being conducted online. We strongly recommend you register and familiarise yourself with the online auction.
If you can’t attend, there are two ways in which you can bid (each auctioneer has its own rules & methods).
Firstly, you can appoint a representative or a solicitor to bid for you. It is always advisable to write and inform the auctioneer. Also, give your representative a letter confirming that they are bidding on your behalf.
Proxy auction Bids If you want to bid by proxy on the day of the bidding, the auctioneer may be happy for you to do so.
The auctioneer usually holds a signed contract and deposit cheque at least 48 hours before the bidding. Therefore, please contact the auctioneers in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.
Please contact Clive Emsaon for a proxy bid registration form or use the one shown on the website (link below) or the one in the brochure.

How to buy an unsold auction property lot?
If a lot does not sell in the auction due to bids not meeting the seller’s reserve price, the lot will be unsold. This, however, does not mean that you have missed the opportunity to purchase the property.
You should contact Clive Emson immediately after the bid has finished and make your offer. The seller may be interested and agree to a sale afterwards.
Bidding at Clive Emson Auction
If you have not bid before, it is advisable to be present when the bidding starts, listen to the auctioneer’s opening remarks, and follow the bidding in the early lots.
The seller’s solicitor will then prepare the contracts. THESE MUST BE SIGNED by the purchaser BEFORE LEAVING THE AUCTION ROOM.
