Back out from successful bid on auction property?

You are going to have to put it down to a learning experience, I think.
I know of people who buy blind like this - and who have got good deals. But they were v wealthy people, who could afford to take a big risk.

Other bidders, you say - well, yes there may have been.
But bidding up to the reserve price may have been done by the auction house's own staff. Perfectly legal and called "Off the Wall" bidding. Which is why it pays to stand at the back, not that doing this will necessarily help you know its the auctioneers own staff.
Next time, do read up on auctions first - how they work etc. I have a useful section in my "Successful Property Letting" book on auctions and how they work.
Put it down to experience and build your knowledge of how it all works, ready for next time (assuming you've not lost all hope!)

Good luck

Hi Martin,

Manchester Metropolitan University - one of those new fangled "Unahs" - did research on the real reasons S21 was used, for the RLA, which they have submitted to government in evidence re the discussion on banning S21.

My blog references the research here:

Section 21 - Emergency meeting and joint delegation

Thanks for those responses.
I was really asking how it was in Scotland re getting property back where there has been ASB since they abandoned S21 there. Sorry was not specific on earlier post.
Was it made any easier there?
