Easylive Buyers: 18% Commission on the hammer price.

Other Information for Buyers: The Auctioneers are the agents for both the vendors and buyers. All items offered for sale are sold as seen with no guarantee of any kind given or implied unless stated by the auctioneer. All sizes and weight measurements are approximate.
Some catalogue descriptions may make reference to condition, however omission of such a reference does not imply that a Lot is free from defect nor does any reference to a particular defect imply the absence of others. Please make yourself aware of age, condition, authenticity, origin etc. before bidding as the auctioneer cannot be held responsible for descriptions and/or accuracy concerning any catalogued items.
Make sure you have viewed items to establish your own opinion to age, condition and authenticity. Bidding is a contract in auction and failure to pay an account is a criminal offence. The Auctioneer and vendors are not responsible for any loss, damage or injury sustained by any person on the premises before, during or after the sale no matter how it may arise.
ARTIST RESALE RIGHT: May apply to some lots. The buyer pays an additional 4% on the sale price for works of art selling between 1000 to 50,000 Euros (lesser percentages may apply in higher brackets). This is payable to a living artist or to his or her estate in accordance with European directive 2001/84/EC.
All persons attending a Sale under the conduct of the Auctioneers - whether at the Sale Room 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 direct negligence of an employee(s) of the Company.
