    Dispute over house sale. Bid after deadline. 18th Mar 12 at 10:52 PM
    Just a story i was given & it made me curious enough to enquire about the legal side of it...

    Basically a workmate of the gf's was interested in a house through farrel & heyworth. There was a deadline on this house bidding according to this website. Deadline comes & goes & gf's workmate is the highest bidder.

    Then farrel & heyworth say that someone has come in with a higher bid ... outside of the bidding frame (i.e. the house is no longer my gf's workmates).

    This workmate is getting her solicitors onto the job. I just wondered whether they (F&H) could do this, or not? Seems a bit naughty to me. A tactic to get them to up the price perhaps?

    Not a house owner myself so haven't even dabbled in the game to know what goes on.
