Ability to purchase BidX1 properties pre auction

    Is there any way to discuss the purchase of a property pre auction.

    The area I'm looking at purchasing has quite a few properties that I would think are suitable for a B2L however are mostly BidX1 properties and as I'm purchasing via a mortgage are not suitable.

    The properties have been put up for auction for a reason, so no - the vendors are generally not in a position to do a conventional sale (missing documentation, planning problems, etc that will rule out a mortgage purchase) or simply don't want to.

    Those type properties are generally for cash buyers - Most have some sort of issue that causes problems with a mortgage. (Not all but most do!)

    Also the normally use AMV when advertising & it's usually way off the actual property value/selling price.

    There is no way the will accept a bid subject co loan. there is no way your solicitor would be happy with you signing a contract which is not subject to loan unless you are a cash purchaser. Your only chance with those properties is to see if they fail to sell at auction and are offered for sale by private treaty afterwards. There might be some possibility of negotiating the terms of the contract at that stage.
