Hi, An investment property my husband and I own went to public auction today. At the auction someone who was present and who lives in a neighbouring street yelled out to everyone at the auction that our house is full of termites and needs a lot of work to be done to it to be liveable. We have just renovated the house and we hold a current building and pest inspection which shows there are no termites on the property. We have also personally inspected the property and know it to be liveable and free from termites. Due to this person's loud outburst no one bid at the auction and the auctioneer didn't do anything to correct this man's assertions. We do not know this person nor understand his motives for sabotaging our auction in this way. Was there anything the auctioneer should've done to diffuse this situation and allay the crowd's concerns? Have they acted with due care and within their responsibilities as auctioneers? And what steps should we, as the owners, take in moving forward with the sale of our house and avoiding such sabotage again? Thanks so much.
