Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

I viewed a property which was up for auction on the 28th of November and did not sell. It was then put onto the market in a ‘modern auction’ which ends in 3 days time.
There appears to be little interest in the online auction which I expect this is due to the £5,000 reservation fee. Based on a property with a starting bid of £44,950 this is an enormous buyers premium.
So my question is; as I viewed the property through the agent, and at this point will not put an offer in, if it is removed from the market completely and I approach the vendor with a decent enough offer to be accepted would I be breaking any laws by doing so?
Or should I wait for a certain period of time before I make an offer?
I look forward to your opinion/advice on the matter.
