Bidders are personally liable for their bid and are jointly and severally liable with their principal if bidding as agent.

(b) The Charity advises Bidders to attend the auction if possible but will seek to carry out proxy and telephone bids that are in pound sterling and that in the Charity‘s opinion, are clear and received sufficiently in advance of the sale of the lot, endeavouring to ensure that the first received of identical written bids has priority.

(a) Unless otherwise specified, all lots are offered subject to a Reserve, which shall be no higher than the low presale estimate at the time of the auction.

(b) The Auctioneer has discretion at any time to refuse any bid, withdraw any lot, re-offer a lot for sale (including after the fall of the hammer) if he believes there may be error or dispute, and take such other action as he reasonably thinks fit.

(c) The Auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding at levels and in increments he considers appropriate and is entitled to place a bid or series of bids on behalf of the Charity up to the Reserve on the lot, without indicating he is doing so and whether or not other bids are placed.

(d) Subject to Condition 6(b), the contract between the Buyer and the Charity is concluded on the striking of the Auctioneer’s hammer, whereupon the Buyer becomes liable to pay the Purchase Price.

(e) Any post-auction sale of lots offered at auction shall incorporate these Conditions of Business as if sold in the auction room.

 

7. Payment and Collection

(a) Your obligation to pay the Purchase Price arises when the lot is knocked down to you on the fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer in respect of the lot.

(b) Unless agreed in writing with you by the Charity, you must pay all sums to the Charity in the currency in which the sale was conducted immediately upon winning the lot and you must ensure that the funds are cleared by the 5th working day after the sale. Payment must be made to the Charity by cheque, bankers draft, cash, credit card or debit card unless otherwise agreed with you in writing by the Charity. There will be a 3% charge for payment by credit or debit card. If you do not pay any sums due in accordance with this clause, the Charity will have the rights to withhold the lot.

(c) Title in a purchased lot will not pass until the Charity has received the Purchase Price for that lot in cleared funds. The Charity are not obliged to release a lot to the Buyer until the title of the lot has passed.

The Buyer will be responsible for paying the daily storage cost of £50 per day from the 5th day after the Charity has received the full Purchase Price in cleared funds. Failure to collect a lot within 5 days of the full Purchase Price in cleared funds being received by the Charity, unless a written agreement has been made with the Charity prior to this date, could result in the Charity retaining the title of the lot and the decision regarding this will be at the Charity’s discretion. Purchased lots are at the Buyer’s risk (and therefore their sole responsibility for insurance) from collection or after 5 days of the Purchase Price being received by the Charity in cleared funds.
