Substantial 5 bedroomed residential premises with two shop front areas located in a prominent position by the traffic lights on the junction of Wakefield Road, Old Wakefield Road, and Broad Lane.

Auction conditions
Interested parties should view the auction pack for full details of all the conditions of sale. You can request the full auction pack from ourselves.

Bidding at the auction
Should you be successful in purchasing the property at auction you will be required to sign the contract and pay a deposit of 10% of the sale price, this can be paid by Cheque or Bankers Draft to the solicitor dealing with the sale. The remaining monies must then be paid in order to complete the sale within 28 days.

Identification and registration
Due to the recent changes in Money Laundering Regulations, auctioneers will now have to carry out checks on bidders, buyers and sellers. The HMRC guidance states “An auctioneer should carry out customer due diligence on a bidder before they receive a paddle and on the buyer before the hammer falls”. Wm Sykes & Son will therefore now be registering prospective bidders prior to the auction where they will need to provide a form of photographic identification (driving licence, passport etc.) and a current utility bill or bank statement etc confirming your address. Registration will take place on the night of the auction between 6.30pm and 7.15pm. Any interested party wishing to bid in the auction must have registered. If you have any problems in doing this, please contact our office for further advice.
