Pre-registration approval to bid Allsop now require all bidders who wish to bid at our Auctions to register beforehand. All checks required by current anti-money laundering legislation must be satisfactorily completed as part of this process before prior approval to bid will be given. Please use the links on our website to pre-register. Following approval to bid, the buyer named in your registration cannot be changed without consent (for which a charge might be made). Guide Prices 1. A guide price (to include a range of prices), is not an indication of the anticipated eventual selling price or a valuation; it is an indication of the minimum price ( “the Reserve” ) at which (or range of prices within which) the seller might be prepared to sell. The eventual sale price can and frequently does, exceed the guide price. 2. Where a range is given, the Reserve will sit within that range and will not exceed the top end of the range. Where a single figure Guide Price is given, the Reserve will be within 10%, upwards or downwards, of that figure. 3. The guide price may be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. The latest published guide price (or range of prices) is displayed on our website and you should check the website regularly for updates and on the day of the auction. 4.

If a guide price is listed as "TBA", it means no guide price has been set at present. Please do not call our office about this - the guide price, or range of prices, will be published online immediately it becomes available and you should check the auction website regularly for updates and on the day of the auction. Reserve Prices 7. The reserve price is the minimum price at which the Lot can be sold. 8. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the advertised guide prices are up-to-date. it is possible that the reserve price set for any Lot may exceed the previously quoted guide price.
