Insurance and Risk
43. Goods are at the Seller’s risk until sold and it is for the Seller to make appropriate arrangements until sale.
44. All goods purchased are the Buyer’s responsibility from the moment they are sold to him, on the fall of the Auctioneers’ hammer. The Buyer should make his own insurance arrangements with effect from that time.
45. Notwithstanding Clauses 43 and 44 above, the Auctioneers will take reasonable care of the goods whilst in their care and in the event of their staff assisting to remove the goods after the sale.

47. Except as stated in Clauses 45 and 46 above, the Auctioneers shall not be responsible for the safe custody of any lots after the sale.
Liability for Accidents
48. The Auctioneers shall not be responsible for any accident which happens to any person while on the sale premises, unless this results from the Auctioneers’ negligence.
Title to Lots Purchased
49. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in any lots or goods sold, the property in those lots or goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Auctioneers have received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the goods and all other goods purchased by the Buyer for which payment is then due.
50. The Buyer will keep any goods not yet paid for separate from his own goods, so that they can readily be identified.
51. The Buyer will return any goods not paid for to the Auctioneers’ representative, on request.
52. The Auctioneers may enter onto the Buyer’s premises to recover any goods not paid for.
53. The Auctioneers shall be entitled to assume that the goods offered for sale belong to the person entering them in the sale, unless they are informed otherwise by that person. The person entering the goods for sale (or any owner whose name was given to the Auctioneers) shall be entitled to receive the sale proceeds, after deduction by the Auctioneers of their commission and expenses.
54. All lots are accepted for sale on the basis that the Seller has good title to the goods concerned. The Seller will indemnify the Auctioneers against any claims or expenses to which they may be exposed as a result of the Seller not having good title.
55. If any goods to be sold are the subject of a hire purchase agreement, the Auctioneers must be informed of this before the Sale. The Auctioneers reserve the right to withdraw any goods from the Sale, should they discover that they are the subject of a hire purchase agreement.
56. The Auctioneers will not be liable to the Buyer for any loss suffered due to the goods being the subject of a hire purchase agreement, unless the Auctioneers have been negligent in failing to act on any information received indicating that the goods were held on hire purchase. Normally, the Auctioneers must rely on information given to them by the Seller, unless they have reason to doubt this.
Principals and Agents
57. Where lots are offered for sale by a person in his own name, but he is in fact acting as an agent for another person, he must, if asked to do so by the Auctioneers, disclose the name and address of his principal. Both the principal and his agent will be jointly and severally liable under the contract of sale.
58. Any person intending to bid for any lots as an agent shall inform the Auctioneers of this intention before the sale starts. If required, he will disclose the name and address of his principal.
59. Both the principal and his agent will be jointly and severally liable under the contract for sale in all cases where a person whose bid is accepted is in fact acting as an agent, whether or not he has disclosed this fact.
60. Clause 59 will not apply, if before the start of the sale the agent informs the Auctioneers that he intends to contract as a principal, in which case the agent will be personably and solely liable on the contract.
Description and Condition of Goods
61. The Auctioneers take care to ensure that the particulars of all goods advertised for sale in their catalogue are correct, to the best of their knowledge. The Auctioneers do, however, have to rely to a large extent on information given to them by Sellers. The Auctioneers shall not be liable for any mistakes or inaccuracies in the information published, unless these are due to the negligence of the Auctioneers.
62. Subject to Clause 61, any claim by the Buyer which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of goods purchased, or their failure to correspond with the description, shall be notified to the Auctioneers within 2 days from the date of purchase, or (where the defect of failure was not apparent on reasonable inspection) within a reasonable time (but in any event not more than 2 days) after discovery of the defect or failure. If the Buyer does not observe these provisions, neither the Auctioneers nor the Seller shall be under any liability to the Buyer.
63. Buyers are expected to view the goods on sale and to rely on their own knowledge or that of their own advisers before proceeding. The Auctioneers will not be liable for any defects in the goods unless the Buyer has been misled as to the condition of the goods by any deliberate or negligent act by the Auctioneers.
64. WARNING: Buyers should note that certain goods sold at auction are suitable only for spare parts or as scrap. Buyers should check the safety of any mechanical, electrical or technical items purchased before attempting to use them and should take advice from an engineer, electrician or other qualified technical expert as to the fitness of goods for any particular purpose. The Auctioneers cannot accept liability for any damage sustained due to disregard of this warning, except for liability for personal injury or death caused by the negligence of the Auctioneers.
65. Clause 64 is particularly relevant to motor vehicles sold at auction. These are in no way guaranteed to be fit for use on the road and the Buyer must not take a vehicle purchased onto the road before satisfying himself that it is so fit.
66. Except as permitted by these Conditions, any claim raised by a Buyer in respect of goods purchased by him shall be against the Seller. If the Auctioneers have paid the Seller from their own money before notification of such a claim, then the Seller shall reimburse the Auctioneers.
67. In the event of any conflict arising between these General Conditions of Sale and any other conditions stated in a Catalogue of Sale published by the Auctioneers, these General Conditions shall prevail.
