Auction Registration Form



Watts & Morgan have been selling properties by Public Auction since 1857, and have sold a wide range of different types of property at auction since that time.

Selling your property by Public Auction is a very open and transparent way, giving everybody an opportunity to purchase your property. Auction is quick, easy and with a completion date after the sale which is normally 28 days. You avoid chains by selling at Public Auction, when the hammer comes down effectively your property is sold.

For many types of property, depending on market conditions at the time, auctions achieve the best price in the market place and (subject to the above) are by far the best way to sell these properties.

The auction system has been tried and tested over hundreds of years. Executors of Estates, farmers and charities prefer the auction system; the system is transparent and public with everyone being given the opportunity to purchase. The majority of properties sold at Auction will have a reserve price.

When your property is offered for sale by Public Auction your property is advertised a lot in a short period giving a very high profile in the market place. There are purchasers who only buy via auctions.

A non refundable 10% deposit is paid by the purchaser on the fall of the hammer.

Watts & Morgan’s Auctions are currently held at the Bear Hotel, Cowbridge (although other venues are occasionally used) where usually around 200 prospective bidders are in attendance. Auctions are free to attend and are open to the public.
