Grand Auction House conducts business with bidders, buyers, and all those present in the auction room prior to or in connection with a sale. The following are the General Conditions and other applicable terms, conditions, and notices.

1. Definitions
In these Conditions:
(a) "auctioneer" refers to Grand Auction House as the authorized auctioneer, as appropriate;
(b) "GAH" refers to Grand Auction House.
(c) "deliberate forgery" means an imitation created with the intent to deceive regarding its authorship, origin, date,age, period, culture, or source. It is unequivocally described in the catalogue as the work of a particular creator, but its value at the time of the sale is significantly lower than if it had been as described;
(d) "hammer price" signifies the highest bid (at or above any reserve) when the auctioneer brings down the hammer;
(e) "terms of consignment" represent the agreed-upon terms and commission rates on which Grand Auction House accepts instructions from sellers or their agents;
(f) "total amount due" includes the hammer price of the sold lot, any applicable premium, VAT charges, and additional charges payable by a defaulting buyer under these Conditions;
(g) "sale proceeds" denote the net amount due to the seller, calculated as the hammer price of the sold lot minus the commission, VAT charges, and any other amounts owed to us by the seller.

2. Bidding Procedures and Conduct of the Auction
(a) Bidders must register their details before bidding and comply with any security arrangements before entering
the auction room. Failure to provide requested identification may result in bidding permission being denied.
(b) The auctioneer retains the discretion to refuse any bid, withdraw any lot, re-offer a lot for sale (including after
the hammer falls) in case of errors or disputes, and take appropriate actions.
(c) The contract between the buyer and seller is formed when the auctioneer's hammer falls, making the buyer liable to pay the purchase price.
(d) These conditions also apply to any post-auction sales of lots originally offered at the auction.
(e) We reserve the right to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of any reserve and to refuse any bid.
(f) Bidding via our website "grandauctionhouse.com," as well as through "easyliveAuction.com" and "liveauctioneers.com," follows the same procedures and conduct as in-room bidding. Bidders participating online must register in advance and comply with the specified requirements.

3. Increments
Bidding increments are determined at the sole discretion of the auctioneer.

4. The Purchase Price
The buyer must pay the hammer price along with a premium of 22% + VAT. The premium is subject to VAT at the prevailing standard rate.
5. VAT
Value Added Tax is imposed by law on items marked with an asterisk or double asterisk. The applicable VAT rate prevailing at the sale date is charged to buyers of relevant lots.
In our catalogue, you may find items marked with an asterisk * or double asterisk **, signifying that VAT is applicable to the buyer on both the hammer price and the buyer's premium. The VAT rate is either the standard rate (currently 20%) or a reduced rate (currently 5%), as mandated by the specific legal requirements pertaining to each respective lot.
6. Payment
(1) Upon the sale of a lot, you must:
(a) provide proof of identity upon request, and
(b) make payment for the total amount due in cash, debit, credit card, bank transfer, or another agreed-upon method.
(c) to pay within 72 hours of sale
(2) Any payments made by you may be allocated towards any outstanding sums owed to us, regardless of specific instructions from you or your agent.
(a) Additional bidding surcharges related to third-party bidding platforms must be paid directly to GAH. Failure to do so may result in a delay in releasing goods.

7. Title and Collection of Purchases
Ownership of any purchased lots transfers to you only upon full payment of the total amount due.
(a) You must collect any purchased and paid lots at your own risk and expense within 7 working days following the auction day.
(b) After 7 working days you will incur £5/ day charge for storage.
(b) No purchase can be claimed or removed until it has been fully paid for and payment has cleared.
(c) Invoices cannot be split, and title cannot be transferred to other individuals. Invoices must be paid in full before lots can be removed.
(d) Purchased lots must be collected within the specified time as stated in the Terms & Conditions. Storage charges may apply thereafter. Purchased lots are at the buyer's risk, and it is their sole responsibility to ensure appropriate insurance coverage. Until the risk passes, Grand Auction House will compensate the buyer for any loss or damage up to the maximum purchase price paid.

8. Remedies for Non-Payment or Failure to Collect Purchases
(1) In case of non-payment for a lot or failure to collect purchases in accordance with these Conditions or any
other breach of these Conditions, we, as the agent for the seller and on our own behalf, reserve the right to

(b) Rescind the sale of the lot in question and/or any other lots sold to you;

death, personal injury (except as required by law due to our negligence), or the safety of visitors' property prior to or during a sale.

a specific lot. They are assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves with the lot's condition. However, we will execute bids on behalf of prospective buyers if clearly instructed in writing.

preference to the first bid received.

14. Description and Conditions
(a) While we strive to provide accurate descriptions of lots, it may be impractical to conduct exhaustive due diligence on each item. Prospective buyers have ample opportunities to view and inspect lots before the sale, and they (or independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves regarding the accuracy of any lot description. Buyers are welcome to make appointments to view lots listed in online-only auctions. Prospective buyers understand that representations or statements made by us regarding authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition, or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. Subject to the preceding statement, we, the auctioneer, our employees, and agents, as well as the seller, accept no liability for the accuracy of such opinions. All conditions and warranties, whether express, implied, or statutory, regarding the
description, condition, or quality of lots are hereby excluded.

Grand Auction House is not liable for any errors or omissions in these reports. Buyers must satisfy themselves with the condition of any lot before bidding. Grand Auction House will not be held responsible
for any damage or defect not notified to the buyer. Catalogue illustrations are for guidance only and do not convey full information about the actual condition of lots.
(c) The term "(a/f)" indicates that a lot is sold "as found." It is used for guidance purposes and signifies, in our opinion, significant damage or repair to an item. The absence of this term does not imply the absence of significant damage or repair.

15. Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and Conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with English law. Disputes arising in connection with these Conditions shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

16. Severability
If any part of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

17. Entire Agreement
These Terms and Conditions, together with any additional terms, conditions, and notices referred to, constitute the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes any previous agreements, arrangements, or understandings.
Please carefully read and understand these Terms and Conditions before participating in any auction conducted by Grand Auction House. By registering as a bidder, attending the auction, placing a bid, or purchasing a lot, you agree to be bound by these Conditions.
