The RVT is up for sale...


This just in from Guy... The Royal Vauxhall Tavern is up for sale by auction on 20th Sept. at the New Connaught Rooms in London. Starting bid £750,000. Andrews & Robertsons - Auctions Lot 59.

UPDATE: I now know a lot more about this but can say very little. All will be revealed at the auction. All I can say is in general at a property auction; (a) require you to prove you have the money to bid, (b) you need to come up with the money within three days of your winning bid, (c) there is very little time for surveys or searches to be done even if you are allowed access & (d) the winning bid could be way above what you think you are going to pay. Way above.
