Failing to complete on an auction bid can be expensive. You lose the 10% deposit and you are liable I think, for the re-marketing costs, any shortfall against the eventual price and interest in the meantime. Sillybilly should have been certain of his funding. Still, no doubt he was a celebrity on the night.

Etc.

'I'm a developer, reduced to the status of a bum!'

'I've some very distressing news. We've run out of money'.
