TERMS OF SALE BY AUCTION
All purchases will be paid in cash.
In addition to the hammer price, buyers will pay the following
fees and taxes by item: 25 % tax included.
All foreign fees for wire transfer will be charged on the buyer.
The buyers will be charged additional fees for foreign credit
cards of 1.20%. No foreign check will be accepted.
The successful bidder will be the highest and last bidder and must
pay cash. In the event of a dispute, the Auctioneer has the right to
cancel the sale and put the dispotued lot(s) back up for auction.
A pre-auction viewing allows bidders to ascertain the condition
of the sale items. Prospective buyers are strongly advised to
examine personally any goods in which they are interested,
before the auction takes place. Condition reports are usually
available on request and remain subject to the personal
appreciation of the prospective buyer. All lots are therefore sold
in their condition at the moment of the sale. No claims will
therefore be accepted after the hammer has fallen.
