Publicly appointed and sworn in as a particularly competent auctioneer

Service Description

If you wish to conduct legally ordered public auctions (e.g. forced pledge sales or distress sales), you require a public appointment for this. The owner of the auctioned property has no influence on the price and the minimum bid and must therefore be able to rely on the fact that his property interests will be represented in a particularly qualified manner at the auction. You must therefore prove that you have special professional knowledge and a high degree of personal reliability.

As a publicly appointed auctioneer, you are sworn to carry out your duties conscientiously, impartially and free from instructions.

The appointment can be general or limited to certain types of auctions, provided there is a need for auctioneer services. It can also be restricted in terms of content, limited in time and subject to conditions.
be associated with conditions. The appointment is valid for the whole of Germany.

The appointment can only be requested for you as a natural person and not for a company.
