Guide Prices. Where a guide price (or range of prices) is given, that guide is the minimum price at which, or range of prices within which, the seller might be prepared to sell on the date on which the guide price, or range of prices, is published. The reserve price is the minimum price at which the property can be sold. Both the guide price and the reserve price may be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. All guide prices are quoted 'subject to contract'. The latest published guide price, or range of prices, are displayed on our website. The latest published guide, or range of prices, will normally be at or above any reserve price. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these guides are not misleading, it is possible that the reserve price set for any lot may exceed the previously quoted guide price - as the seller may fix the final reserve price just before bidding commences. If a guide price is listed as 'tba', it means that there is no guide price at present - please do not call our office. The guide price, or range of prices, will be published online immediately it becomes available at: Please check regularly for updates. Lots may be sold or withdrawn prior to auction.
