Kotler Galleries & Auctioneers has made a consistent effort in cataloging and correctly describing the property to be sold. If a refund is requested, the item must be returned within 2 weeks of your receiving it (7 days if based on condition only), in the same condition in which it was sold along with a signed written statement from a professionally recognized and qualified authority on his/her professional letterhead, stating that the art work is not by the hand of the artist/manufacturer/period in which it was described, or in the case of condition, the statement should clearly state the material differences or omissions from what was stated in the auction listing and what was actually received by you from Kotler Galleries & Auctioneers. With respect to all returns, it is the buyer's responsibility to cover the cost of shipment and insurance, regardless of the reason for the return. Kotler will not reimburse shipping costs to buyers who return auction goods.
A buyer's premium of 18% of the hammer price shall be added to each purchase to reach the total sales price. For buyers using the online bidding service, a buyer's premium of 18% shall be added to each purchase to reach the total sales price.
