How to buy property at an auction

Home

Check the property documents thoroughly through a lawyer, if necessary.

A bank auctions a property 'as-is-where-is' which makes the buyer liable for any renovation cost or unpaid taxes on the property. Hence, a proper inspection is critical to assess the property's true value.

Moreover, there are certain safeguards one needs to practice to enjoy the advantages that an auctioned property offers.
