Terms & Conditions
all property offered and sold
through sa≤uel t. free≤an & co.,
(auctioneer, or broker, or the
co≤pany) shall be offered & sold
on the ter≤s & conditions set
forth in these conditions of sale.
by participating in any sale, you
acknowledge that you are bound
by these ter≤s & conditions.
1
Samuel T. Freeman & Co. has made
every effort to catalogue and describe
accurately property to be sold. The
Company, however, assumes no risk,
liability or responsibility for the
identification or authenticity or
authorship, or weight, count, or measure
of any property identified in its catalogue
or lists of sale. This shall include, among
others, the identity of the creator, the
period, culture, source of origin, as the
case may be, with which the creation of
any property is identified in any
publication.
2
All property is sold “As-Is.” The
consignor makes no warranties or
representations of any kind with respect
to any property offered for sale, since
the auctioneer is acting solely as an
auction broker, and, unless otherwise
stated, does not own the property
offered for sale. Therefore the
auctioneer makes no warranty of title,
warranty of merchantability or fitness
for a particular purpose, or any other
warranty or representation of any kind
or nature with respect to the property. In
no event shall it be responsible for the
correctness, nor deemed to have made
any representation or warranty of
description, genuineness, attribution,
provenance or condition of the property
and no statement by anyone or in the
catalogue, in any advertisement, or
which is made at the sale, in the bill of
sale or invoice, or elsewhere, shall be
deemed such a warranty or
representation or an assumption of
liability. Without in any way waiving the
foregoing, any complaint regarding
authenticity, genuineness, attribution or
provenance shall be made within twentyfive (25) days of the day of sale or such
complaint shall be waived. All bidders
acknowledge their right to have made or
requested full inspection of any and all
properties prior to sale and agree to be
charged with all matters such inspection
may have disclosed or indicated.
Inspection on the day of sale will be
permitted only upon prearrangement
with the company.
3
Samuel T. Freeman & Co. reserves the
right to withdraw any property at any
time before the fall of the hammer in its
sole and exclusive discretion.
4
Unless otherwise announced by the
auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids are
per lot as numbered in the printed
catalogue. Samuel T. Freeman & Co.
reserves the right to determine any and
all matters regarding the order,
precedence or appropriate increment of
bids or the constitution of lots.
5
The highest bidder acknowledged by the
auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the
event of any dispute between bidders,
the auctioneer shall have the sole and
final discretion either to determine the
successful bidder or to re-offer and resell
the article in dispute. If any dispute
arises after sale, the Company’s sale
record shall be conclusive in all respects.
6
If the auctioneer determines that any
opening or later bid or any advance of
bidding is not commensurate with the
value of the article offered, he may reject
the same and withdraw the article from
sale.
7
Upon the fall of the hammer, title to any
offered lot or article will immediately
pass to the highest bidder as determined
in the exclusive discretion of the
auctioneer. Such bidder thereupon
assumes full risk and responsibility for
the property sold, agrees to sign any
requested confirmation of purchase, and
agrees to pay the full purchase price
therefor or such part upon such terms as
the Company may require. All property
shall be paid for and removed by the
purchaser at his/her expense within five
(5) days of sale and, if not so removed,
may be sold by the Company, or sent by
the Company to a public warehouse, at
the sole risk and charge of the
purchaser(s), and the Company may
prohibit the purchaser from participating,
directly or indirectly, as a bidder or
purchaser in any future sale or sales. The
Company will not be responsible for any
loss, damage, theft, or otherwise
responsible for any goods left in the
Company’s possession after five (5)
days. If the foregoing conditions or any
applicable provisions of law are not
complied with, in addition to other
remedies available to the Company and
the Consignor (including without
limitation the right to hold the
purchaser(s) liable for the bid price) the
Company, at its option, may either cancel
the sale, retaining as liquidated damages
all payments made by the purchaser(s),
or resell the property. In such event, the
purchaser(s) shall remain liable for any
deficiency in the original purchase price
and will also be responsible for all costs,
including warehousing, the expense of
the ultimate sale, and the Company’s
commission at its regular rates together
with all related and incidental charges,
including legal fees. Payment is a
precondition to removal. Payment shall
be by cash, certified check or similar
bank draft, or any other method
approved by the Company. Checks will
not be deemed to constitute payment
until cleared. The Company will charge
interest of one and one-half percent
(1-1/2%) per month on any balance
remaining thirty (30) days after the day
of sale. Any exceptions must be made
upon the Company’s written approval of
credit prior to sale.
8
Unless the sale is advertised and
announced as “without reserve”, each lot
is offered subject to a reserve and the
Company may implement such reserves
by bidding through its representatives on
behalf of the Consignors. In certain
instances, the Consignor may pay less
than the standard commission rate
where the Company or its representative
is a successful bidder on behalf of the
Consignor. Where the Consignor is
indebted to the Company, the Company
may have an interest in the offered lots
and the proceeds therefrom other than
the broker’s Commissions, and all sales
are subject to any such interest.
9
No “buy” bids shall be accepted at any
time for any purpose.
10
Any pre-sale bids must be left in writing
with the Company prior to
commencement of offer of the first lot of
any sale. The Company’s copy of any
such bid shall conclusively be deemed to
be the sole evidence of same, and the
Company shall not be held responsible
for any failure to execute any pre-sale
bid.
11
A buyer’s premium will be added to the
successful bid price and is payable by
the purchaser as part of the total
purchase price. The buyer’s premium is
19.5% of the successful bid price up to
and including $200,000, and 12%
thereafter.
12
Unless exempted by law from the
payment thereof, the purchaser will be
required to pay any and all applicable
state and/or local sales taxes. Deliveries
to be made outside the state where a
sale is conducted may therefore be
subject to a corresponding or
compensating tax in another state.
