Terms & Conditions
This catalogue, as amended by any posted notices or oral announcements during the sale, is the entire agreement by and between LIONS GALLERY, the Consignor and the purchaser relative to the property listed herein. The following Conditions of Sale are the complete and only terms and conditions on which all property is offered for sale. We will offer some of the property as an agent for the Consignor. 1. Lions Gallery ("the Auctioneer") sells as agents for the seller (except where otherwise stated) and as such is not responsible for any default by buyer or seller. 2. The highest bidder to be the buyer. If during the auction the Auctioneer considers that a dispute has arisen he has absolute authority to settle it or to re-offer the lot. The auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance of bidding or refuse a bid, divide any lot, combine any two or more lots or withdraw any lot without prior notice. 3. The buyer shall pay the price at which a lot is knocked down by the Auctioneer to the buyer ("the hammer price") together with a premium of 20%. (For purchases made online the buyer's premium will be 22.5% of the successful bid price.) In the case of a lot when the hammer price exceeds 150,000 the premium shall be 10% thereafter. By making any bid the buyer acknowledges that this attention has been drawn to the fact that on the sale of any lot the Auctioneer will receive from the seller commission at its usual rates in addition to the said premium and assents to the Auctioneers receiving the said Commission. 4. The buyer shall forthwith upon the purchase give in his name and permanent address together with proof of identity and pay to the Auctioneer immediately after the conclusion of the auction the total sum due. The buyer may be required to pay down during the course if the sale the whole or any part of the total sum due, and if he fails to do so after such request the lot or lots may at the Auctioneer's absolute discretion be put up again and resold immediately. The buyer shall at his own expense take away any lot or lots purchased no later that five working days after the auction day. 5. If the buyer fails to pay for or take away any lots pursuant to clause 4 or breaches any other condition of that clause the Auctioneer as agent for the seller shall be entitled after consultation with the seller to exercise one or other of the following rights: Rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the buyer who defaults and re-sell the lot or lots whereupon the defaulting buyer shall pay to the Auction any shortfall between the proceeds of that sale after deduction of costs or re-sale and the total sum due. Any surplus shall belong to the seller. ii. Proceed for damages for breach of contract. Without prejudice to the Auctioneer's rights hereunder if any lot or lots are not collected within five days or such longer period as the Auctioneer may have agreed otherwise, the Auctioneer may charge the buyer a storage charge up to 10.00 per lot per day. 6. The seller shall be entitled to place a reserve on any lot and the Auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the seller for any lot on which a reserve has been placed. 7. All property is sold "AS IS" and neither we nor the Consignor may make any warranties of representations of the correctness of the catalogue or the other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibitions, literature or historical relevance of the property and no statement anywhere, whether oral or written, shall be deemed such a warranty or representation. Prospective bidders should inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition, size and whether or not it has been repaired or restored. Any representation or statement by the Auctioneer in any catalogue, brochure or advertisement of forthcoming sales as to authorship, attribution, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimate selling price is a statement of opinion only. Every person interest should exercise and rely on his own judgment as to such matters and neither the Auctioneer nor his servants or agents are responsible for the correctness of such opinions. No warranty whatsoever is given by the Auctioneer or the seller in respect of any lot and any express or implied warranties are hereby excluded. 8. No warranty is given by the auctioneer, its servants or agents, to the seller as to he authorship, attribution, genuineness, origin, date, provenance, condition or value of any lot any express or implied warranties in respect of such matter are excluded. The seller acknowledges and agrees that the Auctioneer owes no duty to the seller or the buyer in respect of any inaccuracies in such information and against all costs and expenses incurred by the Auctioneer in dealing with any claim arising in that respect. 9. Notwithstanding any other terms of these conditions, if within seven days of the sale the Auctioneer has received from the buyer of any lot notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery and within seven days after such notification the buyer returns the same to the Auctioneer in the same condition as at the time of the sale and satisfies the Auctioneer that considered in the light of the entry in the catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price of the same refunded. "A deliberate forgery" means a lot made with intention to deceive. A buyer's claim under this condition shall be limited to any amount paid to the Auctioneer for the lot and for the purpose of this condition the buyer shall be the person to whom the original invoice was made out by the Auctioneer. 10. The Auctioneer shall remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller no later than twenty-eight days after the day of the auction provided that the Auctioneer has received the total sum due from the buyer. In all other cases the Auctioneer will remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller within seven days of the receipt by the Auctioneer of the total sum due. The Auctioneer will not be deemed to have received the total sum due until after any check delivered by the buyer has been cleared. In the event of the Auctioneer exercising his right to rescind the sale his obligation to the seller hereunder lapses. 11. In the case of the seller withdrawing instructions to the Auctioneer to sell any lot or lots the Auctioneer may in this event charge the seller such cancellation charges as may be deemed necessary by the Auctioneer to compensate the Auctioneer for all expenses and other losses involved in or resulting from such cancellation and without limitation to the above such compensation shall not be less than the vendor's commission and the buyer's premium chargeable on the middle estimate of the auction price of the lot or lots withdrawn and any other expenses incurred in respect of the lot or lots.
