above, we may (as agent for the seller) treat you as being in repudiatory breach of the contract of sale and so treat that contract as at an end. This means we can re-offer the property for sale. You will not be able to recover your deposit or Buyer’s Fee and the seller will have a claim against you for breach of contract.
When you pay a deposit, we will hold your deposit as stakeholder for the seller (subject to clause 19.6)
The deposit is non-refundable. If you withdraw from the sale, you will not get your deposit back. We will pay the deposit to the seller’s solicitor/conveyancer.
If the seller withdraws from the sale, we will return the deposit to you or your solicitor/conveyancer.
When the sale completes, we will pass the deposit to the seller’s solicitor/conveyancer and it will be deducted from the purchase price of the property.
We may retain the Minute of Preference and Enactment signed by or on behalf of the seller until the deposit has been received in cleared funds.
If you pay the deposit but do not pay your Buyer’s Fee on time, we may deduct the amount of the outstanding fees from the deposit. This means that the amount passed to the seller’s solicitor/conveyancer will be the deposit less any fees that have been deducted and you will need to make up this difference when you pay the full purchase price.
Interest earned on the deposit (if any) will be passed to whoever the deposit is passed to.
For Timed Auctions, fees and deposits must be paid before exiting the online bidding platform through our third-party provider Sagepay. You will be required to provide your card details to access the online bidding platform. Your card will then be charged automatically in the event that you place a winning bid, for the applicable fees and deposit. You will receive an automatic | 3 59
