Buyer shall pay the Purchase price, as defined above, and such other fees as may be due, in full, with the First Payment being due by 5:00PM Eastern, Tuesday, June 15th, 2021. THE AUCTION PROCEDURE: 1). REGISTRATION: a. Bidders must register online in advance to bid at auction. Prospective bidders may register by clicking the link posted at County website and on the auctioneer website www.georgecoleautions.com. b. The online Registration Form must be completely filled out to be accepted. c. The Auctioneer / Online bidding platform will not allow any person to bid until registration is completed, submitted, and accepted. d. The CofU reserves the right at its sole discretion, to refuse anyone the right to register and participate at an auction if the person fails to complete the registration requirements. 2). MODIFICATIONS: a. We may, at the commencement of, or during the Auction, announce changes in or modifications to the Lot Order, Lot Structure, Combine Lots, Split Lots, Modify the Catalog, Modify Conditions of Sale or descriptions of Property. b. REMOVAL OF LOTS ? As with In-Person auction proceedings a property is subject to being bought back (overdue taxes paid in full by the taxpayer) at any time prior to the fall of the hammer. Nothing has changed in this regard. It is possible that a lot may be struck down during the auction, or even in the midst of bidding on that actual lot. If the judge calls before the hammer falls on the lot, we must nullify any bids on the lot. 3). ADVANCE BIDDING: a. For Bidder?s convenience, advance bidding is available. For strategy, some bidders like to wait until the last second to bid. We have seen some disappointed bidders lose lots because of walking away from the computer at the wrong time, checking in to the auction at the wrong time, forgetting, slow reflexes, connectivity issue, etc? Bidders placing advanced bid will know for sure that their bid has been accepted/logged. They will also have the advantage of being the first person at that interval. In the live part of the auction, only the current highest bid is revealed. In the event that a live bidder is bidding against an advance bid, the advance bid has the advantage of being accepted on every increment until the advance bid is exhausted. 4). AUCTIONEER'S DISCRETION: Regarding resolution for discrepancy and errors, the Auctioneer when acting in the interest of, and as agent of CofU has the absolute discretion to; a. pass a lot or withdraw it from sale at any time prior to its actual sale; b. refuse to recognize any bidder in the interest of time or for any other reason; c. refuse to recognize any bid in the interest of avoiding trouble collecting, maintain a peaceable auction event, or for any other reason; d. resolve any dispute between bidders or resolve any doubtful bid by deciding who is the successful bidder or nullifying the auction of the lot. The Auctioneer's decision is binding as to disputes arising at auction. If a dispute arises post sale, our records of the sale shall be conclusive. GCA, CofU, agents and assigns shall be without any liability whatsoever resulting from the exercise of the discretion referred to herein. e. resolve any issue occurring from any error made by auctioneer, recording clerk, and or any other auction staff. 5). RESERVES - Properties are offered for sale subject to a Reserve and terms herein and stated in the County Of Ulster Public Auction 2021 Brochure. In this auction, the Reserve is the Starting Price and has been set to be the same as the tax amount owed unless otherwise noted. 6). POST AUCTION: A). PAYMENT: Winning Bidder must complete payment as follows: Invoices will be sent via email to winning bidders following the auction. Winning Bidders will make 2 payments. Winning bidder is required to pay the first payment by credit/debit card, before 5pm the following day. Any unpaid payments not completed by 5pm will be subject to autopay attempt. Following confirmation of the initial payment the winning bidder will be contacted to schedule an appt with CofU to complete second payment and sign appropriate documents which will complete the payment process. 1). First Payment will be as follows: 30% of hammer price + Online Platform Sales Premium which is 3% of the Hammer Price + Payment Processing Fee which is 3% of the amount charged to satisfy the First Payment. Example: $10,000 Hammer price would require a First Payment of 30% of Hammer ($3,000) + 3% of Hammer Online Sale Premium ($300) + Payment Processing Fee (3% of $3,300 or $99)? So $3,000 + $300 + $99 = $3,399 would be the initial payment due in this example. This payment is due by 5:00PM Eastern on Tuesday, June 15th, 2021 and must be made by Credit/Debit - Major Cards Accepted VISA/MC/AMEX/DISC Winning Bidders can pay electronically through their invoice or contact George Cole Auctions to facilitate payment over the phone.
