It's important that you view a property before you bid for it at auction. There are so many things to consider and often the most important questions are forgotten.
Ask the relevant questions by taking our helpful checklist with you on your viewing. It may also be useful to take along the property details supplied by the auctioneer to ensure that their information is accurate.
Also check the property for signs of subsidence and confirm that the exterior is in good condition especially the roof and drainage. Double check the boiler, electrics and plumbing in the property and make sure they are all in decent working condition. Finally, you can ask to see copies of guarantees and service certificates.
P.S. Don’t forget to take your tape measure and your camera!
