How to buy property at an auction
Points to Consider: Though beneficial in terms of property value, buying a property in an auction is not feasible for everyone.
In case of aggressive bidding, the price could go much higher, eliminating the cost advantage. Therefore, a careful assessment of the property is critical along with wise bidding.
Check the property documents thoroughly through a lawyer, if necessary.
A bank auctions a property Ďas-is-where-isí which makes the buyer liable for any renovation cost or unpaid taxes on the property. Hence, a proper inspection is critical to assess the propertyís true value.
Buying a property at an auction is a relatively new concept in India and while it might seem to be a lucrative option, it requires the buyer to have really deep pockets to acquire one. Moreover, there are certain safeguards one needs to practice to enjoy the advantages that an auctioned property offers.
