Please note that, strictly speaking, Post Codes are only allocated to property to which there is a postal delivery and due to the nature of some Lots we have had to try and identify the nearest relevant postal address. In the circumstances no guarantee is given as to the accuracy or otherwise of the Post Codes in the brochure or whether they will be acceptable to the Keeper when recording a Title.
  • This catalogue contains details about properties being sold at auction. Those details are subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. Please check our website regularly at: and/or contact us at the office on Tel: 0131 624 6640 to obtain any updates/errata relating to any lots in which you may have an interest. Also look out for any additional materials available on the day of the auction, in order to stay fully informed with the up to date information.
  • Reserve Price: the seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price (see below) and the reserve price for any lot can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
  • Guide Price: The guide price or range of guide prices are given to assist potential bidders in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing, and as the reserve is not usually fixed at this stage. The reserve can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to and including the day of the auction. This may be in the light of interest shown during the marketing period. Where a guide price (or range of guide prices) is given the guide is the minimum price at which, or range of prices within which the seller might be prepared to sell. The last published guide price will normally be at or above any reserve price, unless the seller fixes the final reserve just before bidding commences. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see "Reserve Price" above). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
