Terms & Conditions
1. The auction will be held on a voluntary basis on behalf of and for the account of a third party. This does not affect any lots belonging to the auctioneer - these lots will be clearly marked with a certain code. All other lots are marked with a number showing the owner. There is no claim of the buyer for a disclosure of the consignor's name 2. All descriptions are made up with great care and to the best of the auctioneer's knowledge and all conscience. The catalogue descriptions and any verbal notations of the auctioneer are no warranted for characteristics of the goods and shall not be regarded as assured properties. The lots to be auctioned shall be inspected before the auction during the preview period as listed in the catalogue. All pieces are sold in their present condition: "as is, where is". In case that the buyer has any complaints on the bought lots Art & Auction House will carefully review them and forward the buyer?s claim to the consignor. In case of buying by written purchase order (absentee bid), complaints will only be accepted if a description is substantially and obviously incorrect. Any notice of a claim shall be given immediately - in all instances you must give written notice to us within 2 weeks after receipt of the item, setting forth the basis for the buyer?s claim. Should such a reclaim be accepted, the buyer shall be entitled to claim for the total buying price as a maximum. Any other claims shall be excluded. If a lot comprises three or more items, a complaint for minor defects of individual items shall not be accepted. Lots being described with certain defects shall not be reclaimed for other defects. The auctioneer has the right to exclude any person from the preview and auction for any reason. 3. The auction will be carried out strictly following the numbering in the catalogue. The catalogue text shall be binding, however, if it deems to be suitable, the auctioneer shall be entitled to separate, combine, bring forward, put aside or withdraw any item from the auction. The auctioneer will first call up each item at it's limit price (minimum price) as stated in the catalogue. These limit prices shall not be underbid. Bidding will increase in regular increments of approximately 10% unless determined otherwise by the auctioneer or according to the auction houses' published bid increments list. Any given bid for a certain lot will be valid until the official end of the auction. The highest bid will be called three times and if there is no more overbid, the item is sold as the hammer falls. In case of more than one person making equal highest bids, the winner will be determined by drawing lots. In case of any dispute or if a higher bid has been missed, a new call will for this lot will be made or the item will be sold to the second highest bidder by decision of the auctioneer. The auctioneer is entitled to refuse bids without any further note. In this case the previously given lower bid remains binding for the bidder. In case of a bid below the reserve price this bid is binding for 3 weeks or until the lot is finally sold at this price if the consignor agrees to accept this underbid. If there is a bid at or above the reserve-price the lot will be sold without further notice immediately to the prior bidder. Title to the lot shall pass with the fall of the auctioneer's hammer, thereupon a sales agreement is entered into between the consignor, represented by the auctioneer, and the successful bidder. Upon transfer of title, the buyer assumes full responsibility, including risk of loss and damage, etc. 4. It is the obligation of the lot's winner to pay the purchase price to the auctioneer and pick up the item immediately. All bidders strictly buy in their own name, on their own behalf and for their own account. 5. The purchase price comprises the net hammer price and the buyer's premium. - Hammerprice up to EUR 50.000,- the premium is 23% - Hammerprice from EUR 51.000,- up to 100.000,- the premium is 23% - Hammerprice from EUR 101.000,- up - the premium is 23%. Any invoices made up during the auction are subject of a revision. For purchase orders from absentee bidders the payment of the purchase price is due within 10 days after the date of invoice. The ownership shall only be transferred after full payment. Any banking fees are to be paid by the buyer. 6. Should any buyer fail to pay the full purchase price in time he shall lose his rights as the successful bidder. Such items then will be auctioned at his cost during one of the next upcoming auctions without any prior notice to him. In such a case the defaulter shall be liable for the losses in turnover and for any extra costs for the repeated auction. He is not entitled to any surplus profit. The auctioneer is entitled to collect or sue out purchase money and/or secondary obligations on behalf of the consignor(s). In case of overdue payments an interest rate of 1.5% per month is applicable. In case that the collection of the purchased goods is delayed for more than 14 days the auction house is entitled to store them in the name and at the expense and risk of the buyer. This also might be arranged in cooperation with an autonomous storage company. 7. Written purchase orders (absentee bids) shall only be accepted if received by the auctioneer at least 1 hour before the auction starts. Absentee bids will be handled with greatest care but without any guarantee. Any given prices in absentee bids are made in EURO if no other currency is clearly mentioned. Absentee bids neither contain the buyer's premium nor the VAT. The auctioneer shall handle absentee bids in the bidder's interest, utilizing the highest absentee bid only as far as it is necessary to overbid the second highest by only one increment. Moreover, the auctioneer shall be obliged to maintain secrecy on written absentee bids until the hammer falls. 8. The price the buyer pays is the amount at which the auctioneer?s hammer falls (the hammer price) plus a buyer?s premium (a percentage of the final hammer price) and tax where applicable. The invoice will be made out to the name and address on your Registrations Form, which may not be subsequently altered.
