Step 3: The Case Details
Understand why the property is being auctioned
There are two main reasons why properties are auctioned by the sheriff.

In both cases it is useful to know how much the owner owes the bank, as it gives an idea of how high the bank will bid - or what the reserve price may be.
The bonds registered against a property can be the key to whether or not the property goes for a bargain price.
If there are no registered bonds, or the registered bonds are very low then the bank will not bid very high.
