WELCOME HOME Changing the perception of property auction


No other auction provider in the UK & Ireland offers such a complete and comprehensive range of property auction services for estate agents to offer to their buyers and sellers. Together, we hold both live and online auction events nationwide, working in partnership with over 1900 estate agent branches, providing local knowledge and expertise.


The Traditional Method of Auction

This is a tried and tested method associated mainly with selling and buying investment stock due to more restrictive timeframes to exchange contracts and complete the sale. This limits buyers and the interest and activity around residential properties.


The Modern Method of Auction

This more accessible route, creates a transparent platform for buyers and sellers combining the best aspects of traditional auction and private treaty sales. We offer more realistic yet fixed timescales, opening up the market place for buyers and sellers looking to arrange mortgages as their method of payment. The transaction has 56 days in which to complete with parties aiming to exchange contracts within 28 days of the Draft Contract being received by the buyers solicitors. Whereas with traditional auctions, the exchange of contracts will usually take place as soon as the buyer has won the bid.

The Modern Method of Auction opens the auction market (once reserved for the professional investor or cash-ready buyer) up to residential buyers, creating a larger market place and more interest and activity than traditional auction. It is the preferred route for buying and selling via auction and has changed the perception of auction in the last decade. 

This simple way to buy a house is a breath of fresh air. We could not recommend highly enough. 28 days start to finish!


Taylor Milburn Ltd was born in late 2011 when Directors Jamie Fisher and Paul Kilkelly decided there was a place on the High Street for a property group that offered a full one stop property shop business, but on a friendly, professional basis.

Since opening in April 2012, Taylor Milburn Sales & Lettings has gone on to become one of the area’s leading Estate Agents. Combining local knowledge with excellent customer service, as well as cutting edge marketing, including colour floor plans, and professional photography, the brand has grown rapidly in the last few years. In 2014, Taylor Milburn was shortlisted for both the National ESTAS awards and the Negotiator Awards for ‘Best Independent Estate Agents' in the South East of England.
Our aim is to help our customers in all parts of both buying and selling, but offer a professional, modern and stress free service, away from the typical hard sell of Estate Agents of the past.
