Buying Property at Auction

Clogau Gold - Plans to reopen Hustoric Mine

Machynlleth Lantern Parade 2014


Buying Property at Auction


Property auctions can be a great place to pick up a bargain, whether you are looking for a home or an investment - however buying from an auction is a lot more involved than just simply turning up and placing a bid.

It is vital to do your homework before attending the auction with view to buying a property.

Sort out your finances
Once you have placed a bid at auction, this constitutes a legally binding agreement and you will be required to pay an immediate 10% deposit with the balance to be paid in full within 28 days.
If you only have ready cash to cover the deposit, get an 'in principle' agreement with a mortgage lender - this will help you to stick within your budget when you are bidding.

View the Property
You should arrange to view a property to avoid any nasty surprises - viewing arrangements will be listed in the catalogue.
Check the description of the lot in the catalogue is accurate and ask local estate agents and neighbours for their opinion - carefully read any conditions printed in the catalogue and if necessary obtain legal and professional advice.

Familiarise yourself with the Auction Process
Auctions can be quite intimidating if you have never been before - it is a good idea to attend some auctions as an observer, sit back, watch, listen and learn, paying particular attention to the signals bidders use to place their bids.

Auction Day
Try and attend the auction and bid personally - in the event you are unable to attend, you can by prior arrangement, bid via proxy or by telephone.
On arrival you will need to register or you will not be allowed to bid - get a copy of the  'Addendum Sheet', which will show any alterations to the catalogue.
The auctioneer will announce each lot individually and invite any bids - keep an eye on the guide price,if there is a lot of interest, this may rise.
Set a budgetand decide what you maximum bid will be - this should be based on what you feel the property is worth and the money you have available.
Take at least 2 forms of ID, a cheque book and bank details.
If you have been successful with your bid, you will then have to complete all the necessary paperwork.
The property will become your insurable risk as soon as the hammer falls, so it is important to take out building insurance to cover the property.

Happy Bidding!

Clogau Gold - Plan to reopen historic mine

Clogau has been producing jewellery containing a touch of rare Welsh Gold for the last 20 years.

The mine was founded by William Roberts in 1989 with the original intention of creating a tourist attraction where visitors could pan for gold; however these plans were opposed due to the location being within Snowdonia National Park.

A number of factors led to the closure of the mine in 1998 and with no gold mining taking place in Wales today, Welsh gold supplies will eventually run out making Welsh Gold the rarest gold in the world.

There are now plans to restart production at the gold mine in Dolgellau.  In October 2012, an 18 month legal battle over the rights to the land surrounding the mine was resolved - mining company Midas Exploration claimed to have been unlawfully evicted from the land but a judge ruled in favour of both Gold Mines Wales (who own the rights to mine the Dolgellau Gold Belt) and the landowner Gethin Glyn Williams.

Clogau Gold Managing Director - Ben Roberts - wants to bring the mine back into use.  A special machine plant has been purchased which is currently being manufactured in South Africa - this will allow a more accurate assessment of the gold grades in parts of the unmined areas of Clogau and assess what needs to be done to produce as much gold as possible from the ore.
