Sales of Property by Public Auction – Bidder Registration
Due to Money Laundering Regulations we as an auction company now have to carry out checks on any person who wishes to bid for property at auction. Therefore if you intend to bid for property at auction it will be necessary for you to carry out the following:-
Contact us at least 5 working days prior to the auction to confirm that you intend to bid at the auction so that we can register you. At the point of registration, we will need to take a photocopy of one of the following documents:-
- Photocard driving licence.
- Firearms/shotgun certificate.
- National Identity Card (if non-UK National).
If you do not have one of the above listed documents then we need to be able to photocopy any two of the following:-
- An old style UK Driving Licence.
- Bank Account Statement
- Current Utility Bill.
- Council Tax Demand or Statement
In addition to the above we are also required to take all bidders full names, postal address and dates of birth. This is a new requirement and must be strictly adhered to. For the avoidance of doubt if you do not undertake the above steps we will not be able to accept any bids from you at the auction.
