In light of the latest government advice surrounding COVID-19 and in order to further protect our staff, our March residential and commercial auctions will now be held online only.
To ensure buyers and vendors have the time needed to adapt to this move and to ensure a smooth running of the online auctions on the day, the commercial auction will now be held on Tuesday 31st March (previously March 30th).
The residential auction will be now be held across two days, on April 2nd and April 3rd (previously March 31st). This is due to the nature of online only auctions and the large size of the residential catalogue.
Richard Adamson, Partner and Auctioneer at Allsop, said: “Circumstances and restrictions around COVID-19 are fast moving and we felt it was only right and responsible that our March auctions, previously planned to be live streamed, should be online only. The welfare of our staff, a small number whose presence would have been required, is at the forefront of this decision and they remain our highest priority.
“We have a tried and tested online only auction platform already in place and a small delay to the auction timings will provide our vendors and bidders with the time needed to adapt to this arrangement.
“Over the last week, vendors have been buoyed by the sale of assets prior to our March auctions – a total of over £10m across both our residential and commercial teams to date. Despite the extraordinary circumstances, there is clear demand for strong investment opportunities and an approach that enables business to be conducted in a safe and responsible way.
“We thank all of our staff, clients and buyers for their continued cooperation.”
