…with the property, that is. Ignoring the Allsop’s mega auctions, very few dwellings seem to be auctioned here. Of those that do, I am automatically suspicious. Very often discussion of the properties reveals a planning issue, or some obfuscation of title, or a structural issue.
But should you **expect **a problem with a property up for auction, or is it a case that it is just a significant portion of auction stock has these issues?
Usually auctions are used here for more expensive properties, and I rarely expect any issues when I see such a property for auction. Cheaper properties are generally always for sale by private treaty. Generally I expect issues when I see something that seems underpriced.
