Hi! We're Aucspace

We are the new kids on the auction block

And we are passionate about creating a “new normal” for property auction buyers.

What we’ve seen is that getting auction-ready is still rife with traditional methods that can be frustrating time-and-money wasters.

Legal packs need a rethink. So many documents, short timelines to review, legal fees that are painful considering you may not win the property. And good luck reading all the documents if you go it on your own.

Fact

Only 1 out of 3 potential buyers hire a solicitor to review the legals before auction. The other 2 out of 3 rely on family/friends’ favours, take on the hours of work themselves, or just go ahead uninformed.

It's 2020. We’d prefer to see a modernised and standardised way for all bidders to get informed. That’s why we decided to tackle the burden of onerous legal packs and their review costs by creating a new alternative. A fresh-start solution that combines our backgrounds in property investment, legal and disruptive technologies.

Introducing a radically simplified and digitised legal tool that we call the Buyer Legal Pack Summary. Delivering concise insights and need-to-know Actions right to your laptop - at an affordable cost. We think its the perfect alternative.

We believe that getting you Auction-Ready should be:

Simple

We are a team who know and understand the process of buying (and selling) property at auction. We appreciate the lengthy time normally taken by lawyers to undertake legal due diligence as well as all substantial costs that add up.

Seamless

You can buy a report in seconds, without the need for paperwork or phone calls. And staying updated is just as easy as we’ll do all the chasing of new documents right up to auction day - so you don’t have to.

Affordable for all

More cost-effective than a solicitor but giving you the clarity you need. At £95, we think we have the alternative that fits all.

And we know you feel the same way.

We’ve talked to hundreds of you on your path to buying your next auction property. We asked if you would use an alternative to your current options for legal due diligence. Something that was simpler, easier, faster and more cost-effective. Let’s just say that the answer you gave us was a whopping high-five.

Andy Mendelsohn

Technology and Leadership

Andy has more experience than he cares to remember, having spent over 35 years working in tech startups. He has functioned as a CTO for Funding Circle and Findmypast and has held executive and founder positions in numerous successful startups in Silicon Valley and London. Despite being passionate about building winning teams, strategies and technology, his appetite for ambition is somewhat moderated when it comes to Norwich City FC.

Matt Geppert

Operations

Matt has 15 years’ experience evolving businesses, placing and building technology teams throughout Europe. His passion for technology and determination for problem-solving has brought his knowledge and relationships together to the Auction property market. Outside of Aucspace you will usually find him frustratingly watching Tottenham Hotspur or spending time with his wife and running after his 2 daughters.

Dan Shafron

Business Development

Dan has 14 years’ experience in the UK property industry specialising in the residential investment and development field. His eye for detail, passion for research and rather odd obsession with data analysis has helped grow residential portfolios to values amounting to tens of millions. This, together with his knowledge of UK property auctions has been a driving force for the inception of Aucspace. Away from work, Dan enjoys staying active and will soon realise that sleep should be cherished when his wife gives birth to their first child.

Adam Russell

Sales and Marketing

Adam is responsible for overseeing the sales and marketing across the UK. Adam has over 15 years' of extensive property experience with a vast knowledge in property auctions. Adam also, identifies and undertakes analysis of new suitable commercial opportunities for the company. Outside of the office Adam is a keen sports fan and follows (who he believes is North London's best team) Arsenal. He also claims to be a piano player, however we've seen him play and if we're honest, we think his skills are better placed in property!

Shanaz Ali

Solicitor

Shanaz aspired to become a lawyer from an early age. She completed her law degree from the prestigious London School of Economics in 2011 and then went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law. In 2013 Shanaz joined a specialist property law firm in the Docklands area and dealt with a wide range of residential and commercial property matters. She qualified as a solicitor in 2016. In her spare time Shanaz enjoys reading and her somewhat grandmotherly hobbies of knitting and crocheting. However, above all, she enjoys doing her best to annoy her football-crazed husband.

Kevin Reay

Solicitor

Kevin has been a qualified solicitor for over 30 years. His range of experience is wide, having worked in private practice, local government, the charity sector and even running his own private practice. Most recently Kevin worked at Dixon Ward solicitors in Richmond, London specialising in residential property transactions for a variety of clients and acting for landlords on plot sales. Kevin’s main hobby is art and drawing, both on paper and digitally on his new ipad! Kevin likes to keep fit at his local gym (when he can) but sadly he admits the time spent in the gym is minimal – compared to sitting in the gym cafe!
