Hi, I am attending an auction soon with the intention to bid if it is priced at a level I am comfortable with. I have no idea what I am doing to be honest (never even been to an auction let alone bid at one). Is there some sort of checklist of things to do? Finance is already being organised, do I need to do building / pest inspections pre auction or is the sale subject to those things post auction? I assume I will need a conveyancer or something similar if my bid is the winning one? I did read somewhere (I can't remember where) that I need to get a copy of the contract BEFORE the auction and have someone with legal backgrounds read through it? I thought the contract was done after the auction (this is how inexperienced I am lol).
