VENDORS CONDITIONS

Definitions. In these Conditions Semley Auctioneers, who act only as auctioneers and agents for the vendor, are called “The Auctioneers”, and the representative of Semley Auctioneers conducting the Auction is called “The Auctioneer”. General. Whilst Semley Auctioneers make every effort to ensure the accuracy of their catalogue and the description of any lot: Each lot as set out in the catalogue or as divided or combined with any other lot or lots is sold by the vendor with all faults, imperfections and errors of descriptions. Semley Auctioneers do not accept responsibility for the authenticity, attribution, genuineness, origin, authorship, date, age, period, condition or quality of any lot, unless they have been instructed in writing by the vendor so to certify, and in such case the Auctioneers do so as agents of the vendor and are not themselves responsible for such claims. All statements, whether printed in the catalogue or made orally, as to any of the matters set out in (b) above are statements of opinion only and are not to be taken as being or implying any warranties or representations of fact by Semley Auctioneers, unless they have been instructed in writing by the vendors so to certify, and in such case the Auctioneers do so as agents of the vendor and are not themselves responsible for such claims. Any claim under any Statute must be received in writing by the Auctioneer within ten days of the day of sale. Semley Auctioneers reserve the right at their absolute discretion to refuse admission to their premises or attendance at their sales, without giving any reason therefore. The Auction The Auctioneer has absolute discretion to divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots, to withdraw any lot or lots from the sale, to refuse bids, regulate bidding or cancel the sale without in any case giving any reason or without previous notice. He may bid on behalf of the vendor for all goods which are being offered subject to reserve or at the Auctioneer’s discretion. The highest bidder shall be the buyer except in the case of a dispute. If during the auction the Auctioneer considers that a dispute has arisen, he has absolute discretion to settle it or to re-offer the lot. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance of bidding or refuse a bid. Each lot is put up for sale subject to any reserve price placed by the vendor. Where there is no reserve price (but not otherwise) the seller has the right to bid either personally or by any one person (who may be the Auctioneer). All conditions, notices, descriptions, statements and other matters in the catalogue and elsewhere concerning any lot are subject to any statements modifying or affecting the same made by the Auctioneer from the rostrum prior to any bid being accepted for the lot.

Default. Semley Auctioneers disclaim responsibility for default by either the buyer or the vendor because they act as agents for the vendor only and therefore do not pay out to the vendor until payment is received from the buyer. Instructions given by telephone are accepted at sender’s risk and must be confirmed in writing forthwith.

6.

In the event of a sale by private treaty both the vendor and the buyer agree to be bound by the General and any Special Conditions of Sale.

Instructions. As Semley Auctioneers are auctioneers, all goods delivered to Semley Auctioneers’ premises will be deemed to be delivered for sale by Auction unless otherwise stated in writing and will be catalogued and sold at Semley Auctioneers’ discretion and accepted by Semley Auctioneers subject to all the Sale Conditions. The Auctioneers have sole discretion as to cataloguedescription, type of Sale, and grouping of items submitted for auction. The Auctioneers may decline to accept for sale any item without giving any reason therefore. By delivering the goods to Semley Auctioneers for inclusion in their auction sales each vendor acknowledges that he or she has accepted and agreed to be bound by all these conditions. The right is reserved to charge 15% of the Auctioneer’s mid estimate of any item(s) withdrawn from sale having been accepted for sale, together with all other charges incurred. VAT is payable on all charges. The Auctioneers may exercise a lien on any such item(s).

8.

Collections. Semley Auctioneers do not themselves usually undertake the collection of goods but will, if required in writing, instruct a contractor on the vendors behalf in their capacity as agents. Semley Auctioneers disclaim all responsibility for loss or damage to goods or for unauthorised removal of goods to and for damage to premises caused by the contractor who should be insured for such risks. Unless instructions are received to the contrary the charge for these services will be normally deducted from the proceeds of sale.

9.

Loss or Damage. Semley Auctioneers disclaim all responsibility for loss or damage to goods or for unauthorised removal of goods unless caused by the direct negligence of their employees.

10. Storage. Semley Auctioneers reserve the right to store or arrange for the storage of goods delivered to them for sale either on their own premises or elsewhere at their sole discretion. They exempt themselves from any liability for loss or damage to goods delivered to their sale rooms without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make a minimum storage charge of 50p per lot per day for such goods (unless the loss or damage is caused by the negligence of their employees). 11.

Right to Sell. Vendors will be charged for goods left on the premises if the vendor has been requested to remove them and if the goods are not removed within fourteen days of such request Semley Auctioneers reserve the right to sell the goods to defray costs and storage charges.

12. Insurance. (a). Unless otherwise instructed in writing all goods on Semley Auctioneers’premises and in their custody will be held insured against the risks of fire, theft following forcible entry and water damage (but not against accidental breakage or damage) for which insurance Semley Auctioneers will charge a premium of £1.50 per £100 (minimum 1p). The value of the goods so covered shall be the gross amount realised, or in the case of unsold lots the best bid, or in the case of goods withdrawn prior to a sale that which the specialised staff of Semley Auctioneers shall in their absolute discretion estimate to be the auction value of such goods.

Rescission. Notwithstanding any other terms of these Conditions, if within ten days after the sale Semley Auctioneers have received from the buyer of any lot notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery, and within fourteen days after such notification the buyer returns the same to Semley Auctioneers in the same condition as at the time of sale and by producing evidence, the burden of proof to be upon the buyer, satisfies Semley Auctioneers that considered in the light of the entry in the catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery, then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price of the same refunded. In the event of a dispute then the matter shall be settled by arbitration, the arbitrator to be nominated by the President of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Both the buyer and the vendor agree to be bound by the decision.

5.

7.

(b). Semley Auctioneers shall not be responsible for damage to or the loss, theft or destruction of any goods not so insured upon the owner’s written instructions. (c). Semley Auctioneers shall not be responsible for accident breakage, loss or damage howsoever caused unless directly caused by the negligence of their employees.

Semley Auctioneers is the Trading name of Semley Auctioneers Ltd. Registered in England No: 5136578 


Third Party Liability: Every person on Semley Auctioneers’ premises at any time shall be deemed to be there at his own risk. He shall have no claim against Semley Auctioneers in respect of any accident which may occur or injury, damage or loss howsoever caused, save insofar as the injury, damage or loss shall be caused by the direct negligence of Semley Auctioneers’ employees.

Semley Auctioneers will endeavour to advise successful commission bidders as soon as possible. However, we cannot accept responsibility for this and therefore suggest to all commission bidders that they enquire as to whether or not they were successful or not at the end of the sale or shortly thereafter.

Special Notices: Prospective buyers are advised to take heed of any special notices displayed in the salerooms or announced from the rostrum as these may affect or invalidate statements made in the catalogue or printed elsewhere.

Telephone Bids: There are a limited number of telephone lines. Any buyer wishing to bid by this method should book and confirm in writing not less than 24 hours prior to the commencement of the sale. However, it should be noted that the auctioneers may be unable to contact the intending bidder at the desired time and therefore such requests will be entirely at the risk of the intending bidder. This service is only available for lots expected to realise more than £500.

Buyer’s Registration: All prospective buyers must register with the clerk and obtain a bidding number prior to the commencement of the sale. This number, once issued, is permanent and applicable to all sales conducted by Semley Auctioneers. Proof of identity may be required. Semley Auctioneers reserve the right to refuse bids from or to re-offer lots bought by buyers whose identities have not been satisfactorily established. It is appreciated if registration can be completed before the day of the sale.

Export Licences: An export licence is required for certain items and others above a certain value leaving the United Kingdom. The obtaining of a relevant licence is the responsibility of the buyer. Condition of Lots: While an identification of damage is given in some instances, an absence of such advise does not imply that a lot is free from defect. Prospective buyers are strongly advised to inspect any lot on which they intend to bid. All weights and measurements are approximate and should be verified by intending buyers.

Buyer’s Premium: A premium of 17.5% plus VAT at the standard rate will be charged on the hammer price of each lot. V.A.T.: All lots marked with an asterisk (*) are subject to VAT on the hammer price in addition to the Buyer’s Premium. We operate under the VAT Margin Scheme.

Payment: Payment may be made by cash, banker’s draft, or cheque supported by a valid cheque guarantee card and provided that the amount does not exceed the limit stated on that card. Cheques in excess of their guaranteed limit will only be accepted if prior arrangement has been made with the auctioneers.

General Conditions of Sale: These may be found at the back of the catalogue. Rate of Sale: Approximately 120 lots per hour. This may vary and the auctioneers cannot be held responsible for a buyer missing a lot.

We also accept debit cards and some (but not all) credit cards. There is a surcharge of 2% on the total invoice for payments made by credit card. A charge is made for electronic transfers to our bank. Our bankers are Barclays Bank PLC Shaftesbury Branch Mid Wessex Group King George Street Yeovil Somerset. BA20 1PX Sort Code: 20-99-40 Account number.. 40796948

Estimates: These are intended only as a guide to prospective buyers. Any bid between the listed figures would, in our opinion, offer a fair chance of success. However, the degree of competition for a lot may cause it to sell above or below the given estimates. Estimates can be subject to revision so it is advisable to enquire of any change nearer the time of the sale. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium. Commission Bids (Absentee Bidding): We will be pleased to execute bids on behalf of intending buyers, and no charge is made for this service. All bids are treated in strict confidence and the auctioneers undertake to purchase lots as cheaply as permitted by other bids and any reserves. If more than one bid for the same lot is received the bidding shall commence at one bid above the underbidder’s maximum bid. Where identical bids are left for the same lot the earlier bid left will take precedence. Bidding slips are available from the office and can be found at the back of the catalogue. All bidding slips must be signed. Faxed bids may also be sent. However, these must include the name, address, daytime telephone number and signature of the intending buyer. No responsibility will be accepted for taxed bids or bids taken over the telephone. All written bids must be submitted to the clerk before the commencement of the sale. The auctioneers accept no responsibility for wrong lot numbers entered. Please note all bids are subject to Buyer’s Premium as stated.

Clearing: No lot may be removed from the salerooms before full payment has been received and a receipted invoice shown. All lots must be cleared not later than 13.00 hours on the third working day following the sale unless prior arrangement has been made with the auctioneers. Delivery: Delivery of goods can be arranged through our ‘in-house’ carriers service who charge a competitive rate. Early bookings are advised. Buyers are reminded that the onus is on them for the prompt removal of purchases from the salerooms. Postage: A charge is made for items requiring packing and postage, on receipt of which the goods will be dispatched.

14. Indemnity. The Vendor shall duly indemnify Semley Auctioneers against any claims in connection with any goods sold by Semley Auctioneers on the vendor’s behalf. 15. Value Added Tax. A vendor who sends for sale by auction or private treaty any item which is an asset of his business must disclose to the Auctioneer whether or not he is a registered person for Value Added Tax purposes in the UK or any other EU country and if so, declare his registered number and whether or not he intends to operate the margin scheme for secondhand goods. This information must be supplied to the Auctioneer on or prior to the items being released to the Auctioneer. 16. The vendor authorises the Auctioneer to deduct commission and expenses at the stated rates from the hammer price and acknowledges the Auctioneer’s right to retain any premium payable by the purchaser. 17. Rights to Photographs and Illustrations. The vendor gives Semley Auctioneers full and absolute right to photograph and illustrate any lot placed in its hands for sale and to use such photographs and illustrations and any photographs provided by the vendor at any time at its absolute discretion (whether or not in connection with the auction). Charges are normally made for photographs and illustrations placed in advertisements or catalogues prior to the sale. These charges are subject to VAT at the standard rate. The Auctioneers have sole discretion in disclosing the names of vendors. 18. Electrical and Mechanical Goods. The Vendor or consignor of electrical or mechanical goods warrants and undertakes to the Auctioneers that at the date on which the same are consigned to the Auctioneers or put under the Auctioneer’s control and except as previously disclosed to the Auctioneers the same are safe if reasonably used for the purpose for which they were designed and free from defect not obvious on external inspection which could prove dangerous to human life or health, and will indemnify the Auctioneers, their servants and agents against any loss or damage suffered by any of them in consequence of any breach of the above warranty and undertaking.

19. Inspection. Each buyer by making a bid for a lot acknowledges that he has satisfied himself fully before bidding by inspection or otherwise as to all the Sale Conditions, the physical condition of and description of the lot including but not restricted to whether the lot is damaged or has been repaired or restored. 20. Property and Risk. Legal title will not pass to the buyer until the lot(s) has been paid for in full and the Auctioneers shall be entitled to a lien on any lot until the purchase price (as defined in 22 below) is paid in full but each lot is at the sole risk of the buyer from the fall of the hammer. Each buyer shall forthwith give his full names and permanent address and if called upon to do so by the Auctioneer shall forthwith pay to Semley Auctioneers such proportion of the purchase price as the Auctioneer may require. If the buyer fails to do so, the lot may at the Auctioneers sole discretion be put up again and re-sold. 21. Every bidder shall be deemed to act as principal unless there is in force a written acknowledgement by Semley Auctioneers that he acts as agent on behalf of a named principal. 22. Removal of Goods. (a) No purchase shall be claimed or removed until it has been paid for and the sale has been concluded. All purchases shall be paid for and removed at the buyers risk and expense by 13.00 hours on the third working day after the sale, failing which the Auctioneer shall not be responsible if the same are lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed, and all lots not so removed shall remain at the risk of the buyer and may be removed to independent warehousing facilities, the costs to be borne by the buyer, in default of which the warehousing facility may exercise a lien on such goods. If they are not paid for and removed within 10 days of the sale the Auctioneer may re-sale them by auction or privately without notice to the buyer. Any liability that there may be on the part of the Auctioneer in respect of any loss shall be restricted to a maximum of the price paid by the buyer of the lot. (b)

In the event of any failure of the buyers to comply with any of the above conditions the damages recoverable by the seller or the Auctioneers from the defaulter shall include any loss arising on any re-sale of the lot, together with the charges and expenses in respect of both sales, and together with interest at 2% above Barclays Bank plc Base Rate upon the price of any lot which has not been paid for within 48 hours of the sale, and any money deposited in part payment shall be held by the Auctioneers on account of any liability of the defaulter to them or to the seller. The Auctioneers are unable to accept payment from successful bidders other than in cash or by the bidders own cheque. Cheques drawn by third parties, whether or not in favour of the Auctioneers, cannot be accepted.

23. Purchase Price. The purchaser shall pay the hammer price together with a premium of 17.5% of the hammer price (adjusted for VAT as necessary). The premium at the appropriate rate is payable by all purchasers. The amount invoiced in respect of the premium will be inclusive of VAT but this VAT will not normally be recoverable by the buyer. The vendor authorises the Auctioneer to deduct commission and expenses at the stated rates from the hammer price and acknowledges the Auctioneer’s right to retain the premium payable by the purchaser. 24. Third Party Liability. Every person on Semley Auctioneers' premises at any time shall be deemed to be there at their own risk. He or she shall have no claim against Semley Auctioneers in respect of any accident which may occur or injury, damage or loss howsoever caused, save insofar as the injury, damage or loss shall be caused by the direct negligence of Semley Auctioneers' employees. 25. Commission Charges. Commission is charged at 15% of the hammer price with a minimum commission of £8.51 per lot. The Auctioneer reserves the right to apply unsold charges at 15% of the Auctioneer's mid estimate, together with all other charges incurred. Vat is payable on all charges. Payments are normally issued within 21 days of the date of the sale, providing that Semley Auctioneers Ltd has received payment from the buyer.
