The Auctioneer offers each lot as agent of the vendor.
2. The Auctioneer warrants that he will only sell lots which he believes to be owned by the vendor or to which the vendor will be able to pass a good title, but should it transpire that the vendor’s title to any lot is defective, or that the vendor cannot pass a good title to the purchaser, the Auctioneer shall be under no obligation to the purchaser, other than to use his best reasonable endeavours (short of litigation) to prove the transfer of a good title to the purchaser and to assist in exercising any remedies that he may have against the vendor.
