Clive Emson Auctioneers


Receivers have instructed the sale of a three-bedroom house in Southsea.

The freehold property at 41 Talbot Road is guided at £150,000-plus and is among 138 lots being sold by Clive Emson, Britain’s largest independent regional land and property auctioneer.

Mike Marchant, auction valuer, said: ‘We’ve been instructed by receivers to sell the property.
‘The partially refurbished house offers accommodation across three floors and is considered very worthy of the works required to complete the improvements.

‘It is considered that the property would make an ideal addition to a lettings portfolio or for resale into the local market, once the necessary works have been completed.’

Land with planning permission for a two-storey house, a three-storey rear extension and double garage with hardstanding, has a freehold guide price of £35-40,000 and is adjacent to 81 Leominster Road, Portsmouth.




St Peter’s Farm, on a 1.65-acre plot at Church Lane, Hambledon, has a freehold guide of £200,000-plus.
Rob Marchant, auctioneer, said: ‘The land is situated adjacent to the village school and, as the name would suggest, directly opposite the parish church of St Peter & St Paul.

‘The site is a mix of mature trees and open space, which is at present in use as pony grazing but is considered to have potential for other future uses, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.’
Clive Emson, which works with 850 estate agents across Hampshire and the rest of southern England, holds the auction at 11am at the Ageas Bowl on Thursday, July 27.

Clive Emson sold land and property worth more than £20 million at its June auction.
The firm catalogued 143 lots and achieved a sale rate of 85 per cent.
Managing director James Emson said: ‘There may be a lot of uncertainty in the world at present, but one certainty remains – there is security in bricks and mortar.

‘Despite a political situation that seems to change every day, and one which offers little indication of how things will play out for the property industry as a whole, we go about our business as usual.
‘Indeed, our packed June salerooms have demonstrated the continuing trend set so far in 2017 – that both buyers and sellers realise they get exceptional value and service from us.’
Clive Emson also stages an online auction, complementing the existing live auctions it holds across southern England every six weeks.
