Payment, Collection of Goods

CASH
A single payment cannot be accepted for over £8,000 by one person due to money laundering regulations, unless additional
information and paper work is completed by the buyer.
CHEQUES
We can take payment by cheque. However, goods may not be removed from the Saleroom until the cheque has been cleared
through our bank account. We may on occasion allow goods to be cleared prior to the cheque clearing if you hold an approved
buyer card with us.
PLEASE NOTE
We will review each approved buyer on a case by case basis. Please always check with the office before buying.

You are welcome to pay by bank transfer and clear the goods once we are able to confirm payment has reached our account. Please

DEBIT / CREDIT CARDS - CUSTOMER PRESENT
Buyers using chip & pin cards are welcome to clear goods immediately once the payment has been authorised using their pin

DEBIT / CREDIT CARDS - CUSTOMER NOT PRESENT
We do have a floor limit over which we will NOT accept payment by card when the buyer is not present. (Please check with a member
of our team, as it is reviewed on a regular basis). As long as the amount of your invoice is below our floor limit we will process the
payment. We will only accept full data match payments. We will not release the goods until seven days after the payment has been
made. Items can ONLY be posted to the registered card address the invoice was settled with. The only exception to these rules is if
you hold an APPROVED buyer card with us. We would then review each approved buyer on a case by case basis. Approved buyers
need to discuss this with the office before buying.

All invoices will need to be settled via bank transfer; once we are able to confirm payment has been received you are welcome to
collect your good/s. NB: Overseas buyers are subject to an additional bank transfer charge of £7 when settling their account; this

applied.

1. Every Sale and these Conditions of Sale shall be governed by and construed
in accordance with English Law and shall be subject to the jurisdiction of
English Courts.
2. The Company acts as Agents only in respect of goods delivered for the
purposes of sale and herein shall be known as the ‘Auctioneers’. Persons
instructing the Firm to sell goods are herein known as ‘Vendors’. Persons
who have acquired lots offered for sale by the Auctioneers are herein known
as the ‘Purchasers’.
3. All persons attending a Sale under the conduct of the Auctioneers – whether
at their Salerooms or elsewhere – shall be deemed to be on the land and
premises at their own risk and shall have no claim against the Auctioneers or
their principals in respect of the cancellation/ postponement of a Sale or any
loss, accident or injury however occasioned, save in so far as the same is
proven to be caused by the direct negligence of an employee(s) of the Firm.
4. The Auctioneers make every reasonable effort to ensure the accuracy of
advertisements, catalogue descriptions and other publicity but except where
specifically instructed so to certify by a Vendor, declare that all statements,
oral or in writing, are those of opinion only, made without responsibility
and shall not give rise to any action in law for damages, compensation or
rescission of a sale by a Purchaser, against any Vendor, the Auctioneers or
their employees.
5. Many lots are of an age or nature which preclude their being in pristine
condition. Some catalogue descriptions may make reference to damage
and/or restoration; however, omission of such a reference does not imply a
lot is free from defects nor does any reference to a particular defect imply the
absence of others.
6. Purchasers should, therefore, satisfy themselves by physical inspection of
lots, before bidding, as to the origin, authenticity, quality, age, weight, size
and general description – as lots are sold in their actual state with all faults,
imperfections or errors of description. If physical inspection is not possible
condition reports must be reviewed by purchasers in full before bids can be
accepted.
7. Electrical/mechanical goods are sold on the strict understanding that these
are untested, without warranties or any other guarantees as to serviceability
or working order.
8. Persons handling lots do so at their own risk and shall make good all loss or
damage howsoever sustained; each estimate of cost to be assessed by the
Auctioneers whose decision shall be final.
9. In making a bid, Purchasers acknowledge their attention has been drawn to
these Conditions of Sale and that they are satisfied as to the description and
condition of lots.
10. Lots are sold subject to any announcement, declaration, alteration of
description or other matters, made by the Auctioneers prior to the invitation
of bids.
11. At the fall of the hammer, the highest bidder, acceptable to the Auctioneers,
shall be the Purchaser and any dispute shall be settled by the Auctioneers,
whose decision shall be absolute and final. No lots shall be transferred.
12. The Auctioneers may divide, combine, add or withdraw lots and make
any catalogue alterations without notice or reason; they shall regulate the
advance of bidding, accept or reject (at their absolute discretion and without
justification) and bid on behalf of the Vendor, where there is a reserve price
or at their authorised discretion.
13. Prospective purchasers must register their name, full address and credit
or debit card details with the Auctioneers before bidding. They will then be
issued with a number card which must be shown every time they make a
successful bid. Upon failure to do so, the Auctioneers may re-offer the lot at
their sole discretion.
14. As Agents only, the Auctioneers shall not be responsible for default on the part
of Vendors or Purchasers. Any resultant deficiency, together with interest,
costs and expenses, shall be made good by the defaulter, recoverable as
and for liquidated damages. This condition is, however, without prejudice to
the right of the Auctioneer, in appropriate circumstances, to enforce the Sale
Contract if they see fit.
15. The Contract of Sale is made with the Auctioneers, as Agents for the Vendors
and payment shall be made only to them. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
the Auctioneers shall retain a lien on all goods which shall not pass to the
Purchaser until full payment has been received.
16. Unless prior arrangements have been made with the Auctioneers, cheques
in excess of recognised limits will not be accepted from the Purchasers
unknown to them who have not supplied a Bank or other suitable reference.
In all cases, cheques must be supported with the production of a valid Bank
card. Non compliance with this condition may delay the release of lots,
pending the clearance of cheques.
17. At the fall of the hammer, all lots shall be and remain, in every respect, at
the absolute risk of the Purchaser, including those of fire, burglary, etc, and
damage occasioned to lots by the removal of other goods.
18. Purchasers shall pay for and remove lots at their own risk and expense
immediately following the Sale; after 3 days from the sale date uncollected
lots shall be subject to charges as follows:
• Up to 3 working days to collect – free
• After 3 up to 5 working days - £50 storage charge
• After 5 working days - £100 storage charge
• After 7 days - £10 storage charge per day per Lot in addition to the
charges outlined above.
The Auctioneers reserve the right to resell uncollected lots by auction or
private treaty or alternatively, warehouse goods at a Purchaser’s expense.
In all cases, the Auctioneers may act without notice and any incidental
expenses incurred will become a liability to the defaulter. Invoices not settled
within 14 days of the sale will be subject to interest charged at Lloyds TSB
Bank base rate plus 6%.
19. Notwithstanding any other terms in these Conditions of Sale, if within seven
days of a Sale, a Purchaser gives notice in writing to the Auctioneers, that
in his/her opinion a particular lot (this shall not apply to books or similar
printed matter) is a deliberate forgery, as defined below and within fourteen
days after such written notice, returns lots to the Auctioneers in the same
condition as it was at the time of Sale – and by producing evidence, the
burden of proof to be upon the Purchaser- satisfies the Auctioneers that the
lot is a deliberate forgery, then the Auctioneers are authorised to do so and
will rescind the transaction and refund the purchase price received by them.
This benefit is not assignable. In the context of this guarantee, a ‘deliberate
forgery’ means a lot made with an intention to deceive, when considered
in the light of the catalogue entry and at the date of the Sale had a value
substantially less than it would have had, had it been in accordance with
the description. However, there will be no right where the description in the
catalogue at the time of the Sale was in accordance with the general opinion
of experts or fairly indicated there to be a conflict of opinion. The Auctioneers
reserve the right in forming their opinion to consult and rely upon any expert
or authority considered by them to by reliable.
20. The Auctioneers are prepared to accept commission bids on behalf of
intending Purchasers unable to attend at the time of Sale, provided they
are completed on the correct bidding form and received by the Auctioneers
by 7.00 pm on View Day. The Auctioneers regret that any bids left after this
time are not guaranteed to be processed/executed. Telephone bids must
be organised by contacting the Auctioneers directly. As a matter of policy
all bids must be backed by credit/debit card details, unless the prospective
purchaser has received in writing from the Auctioneers “Approved” or
“Regular” buyer status, in which case the relevant code will be required.
If submitting bids by e-mail please confirm credit/debit cards with the
Auctioneers by telephone. The Auctioneers regret that any bids left without
the backing of credit/debit card details, or an “Approved” or “Regular”
buyer code, will not be processed/executed. The Auctioneers cannot be
held responsible for, nor are they connected with, commission bids given to
Porters.
21. A Buyers Premium of 20% is payable by all Purchasers and is subject to VAT
at the prevailing rate. NB: Overseas buyers are subject to an additional bank
transfer charge of £7 when settling their account; this must be accepted by
the buyer when setting up the bank transfer or £7 added to the invoice total
to cover the costs which will be applied.
22. The auctioneers reserve the right to ask for evidence of identity before
clients complete transactions.
23 Client Money : Clients’ money is defined as any monies received and held by
a firm that does not solely belong to it, such as sale proceeds and deposits,
auction sale proceeds, etc. The firm closely follows RICS Regulations on
protecting clients’ monies and operates a number of designated client bank
accounts specifically for the depositing of client monies. The current client
accounts are maintained at Lloyds TSB in Cirencester and are not interest
bearing.
