Our Property Auctions Department

One of the UK's leading independent residential and commercial property auctioneers, our regular collective auctions feature all types of freehold and leasehold property from houses, barns, building plots and development land, commercial property, farms, land, and often more unusual properties across the south of England.

Buyers and sellers alike are attracted to the speed, simplicity and security of selling land and property by auction. Legal packs prepared in advance enable exchange of contracts on the fall of the hammer, and completion follows on a specified date (usually 28 days).

Thus avoiding the nail-biting and often protracted period of wait during the conveyancing process. It’s a method of sale long favoured by executors but is certainly becoming more common place within the residential, commercial, agricultural and even development sectors of the market.

Our clients include public bodies, executors, trusts and charities, housing associations, leading banks and building societies, local authorities, property companies and private individuals, attracted to the speed and efficiency of this increasingly popular method of sale.

Our dedicated Auction team value the relationships they build with both buyers and sellers. They are often complimented on the genuinely personalised service they provide, and their commitment to ensuring the best practise which forms the bedrock of our Auction department success.

Symonds & Sampson’s auctions are not to be confused with those becoming more common place – many of which are essentially ‘best bids’ scenario with no more than agreement of figure at closure, rather than exchange of contracts and a legally binding contract in place.

In the last twelve months, we have sold property across 8 counties, from Cornwall to Berkshire & Oxford. Prices achieved have been particularly strong for agricultural land where competitive bidding from both local farmers and buyers from further afield ensured that a fair price was paid.
