Buyers Terms and Conditions of Sale

The terms and conditions of sale listed here contain the policies of Artmarketspace Pty Ltd trading as For-Auction. They are the terms on which For-Auction and the Seller contract with the Buyer. They may be amended by printed Saleroom Notices or by updated online or oral announcements made before and during the sale. By bidding at auction, you agree to be bound by these terms.
1. Background to the Terms used in these Conditions
The conditions that are listed below contain terms that are used regularly and may need explanation. They are as follows:
"the Buyer" means the person with the highest bid accepted by the Auctioneer
"the Lot" means any item depicted within the sale for auction and in particular the item or items described against any lot number in the catalogue.
"the Hammer price" means the amount of the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer in relation to a lot
"the Buyer's Premium" means the charge payable by the Buyer to the auction house as a percentage of the hammer price.
"the Reserve" means the lowest amount at which For-Auction has agreed with the Seller that the lot can be sold.
"Forgery" means an item constituting an imitation originally conceived and executed as a whole, with
a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship, origin, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description as to such matters is not reflected by the description in the catalogue. Accordingly, no lot shall be capable of being a forgery by reason of any damage or restoration work of any kind (Including re-painting).
"the insured value" means the amount that For-Auction in its absolute discretion from time to time shall consider the value for which a lot should be covered for insurance (whether or not insurance is arranged by For-Auction.)
All values expressed in For-Auction catalogues
(in any format) are in Australian Dollars (AU$). All bids, "hammer price", "reserves", "Buyers Premium" and other expressions of value are understood by all parties to be in Australian Dollars (AU$) unless otherwise specified.
2. For-Auction as Agent
Except as otherwise stated For-Auction acts as agent for the Seller.
The contract for the sale of the property is therefore made between the Seller and the Buyer.
3. Before the Sale
a) Examination of Property
Prospective Buyers are strongly advised to get extra photographs and condition reports for any property in which they are interested before the auction takes place. Neither For-Auction nor the Seller provides any guarantee in relation to the nature of the property apart from the Limited warranty in the paragraph below.
The property is otherwise sold "AS IS"
b) Catalogue and other Descriptions
All statements by For-Auction in the catalogue entry for the property or in the condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, are statements of opinion and are not to be relied upon as statements of fact. Such statements do not constitute a representation, warranty or assumption of liability by For-Auction of
any kind. References in the catalogue entry to the condition report to damage or restoration are for guidance only. The absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as a statement that this is the price at which the item will sell or its value for any other purpose. Neither For-Auction nor The Seller is responsible for any errors or omissions in the catalogue or any supplemental material.
Images are measured height by width (sight size). Illustrations are provided only as a guide and should not be relied upon as a true representation of colour or condition. Images are not shown at a standard scale. Mention is rarely made of frames (which may be provided as supplementary images on the website) which do not form part of the lot as described in the printed catalogue.
Foreign buyers should note that all transactions are in Australian dollars so there may be a small exchange rate risk. The costs associated with acquiring a good certificate will be carried by the purchaser. If the
item turns out to be forged or otherwise incorrectly described, all reasonable costs will be borne by the vendor.
c) Buyers Responsibility
All property is sold "as is" without representation
or warranty of any kind by For-Auction and its affiliates or the Seller. Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of the property and the matters referred to in the catalogue by requesting a condition report
No lot to be rejected if, subsequent to the sale,
it has been immersed in liquid or treated by any other process unless the Auctioneer's permission to subject the lot to such immersion or treatment has first been obtained in writing.
4. At the Sale
a) Refusal of Admission
For-Auction reserves the right at our complete discretion to refuse participation at the auction and to reject any bid.
b) Registration before Bidding
Any prospective new buyer must complete and sign up by completing a registration form and where requested to provide photo-identification before bidding. For-Auction may request bank, trade or other financial references to substantiate this registration.
c) Bidding as a Principal
When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price including the buyer's premium and all applicable taxes, plus
all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing with For-Auction before
the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to For-Auction and that For-Auction will only look to the principal for payment.
d) International Registrations
All International clients not known to For-Auction or invaluable.com will be required to scan through an accredited form of photo identification and potentially pay a deposit at our discretion in cleared funds into For-Auction's account at least 24 hours before the commencement of the auction. Bids will not be accepted without this deposit. For-Auction also reserves the right to request any additional forms of identification prior to registering an overseas bid.
This deposit can be made using a credit card, however the balance of any purchase price in excess of $5,000 cannot be charged to this card without prior arrangement.
This deposit is redeemable against any auction purchase.
e) Absentee bids
Are handled through invaluable.com see their terms and conditions
f) Telephone bids
Are not available unless otherwise stated as auctions are automated online
G) Online Bidding
For-Auction offers an online bidding service via Invaluable.com. When bidding online the buyer agrees to be bound by all terms and conditions listed here by For-Auction and agrees to pay any fees charged in regard to any purchases made via Invaluable.com.
For-Auction accepts no responsibility for any
errors, failure to execute bids or any other miscommunications regarding this process. It is the online bidder's responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the relevant information regarding bids, lot numbers and contact details.
H) Reserves
Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to a reserve, (Starting price) which is the minimum price below which the Lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate published in the catalogue. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any Lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the Seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders.
I) Auctioneers Discretion
The Auctioneer has the right at his absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he may decide, to withdraw or divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and, in the case or error or dispute and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to re-offer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, then For-Auction's online sale record is conclusive.
J) Successful bid and passing of risk
Subject to the auctioneer's discretion, the highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer and the striking of the digital hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale between the Seller and the Buyer. Risk and responsibility for the lot (including frames or glass where relevant) passes immediately to the Buyer.
K) Indicative Bidding steps, etc.
For- Auction reserves the right to refuse any bid, withdraw any lot from sale, to place a reserve on any lot and to advance the bidding according to the following, at the auctioneer's discretion:

for an export licence then we shall be entitled to charge a fee for this service. For-Auction shall not be obliged to rescind a sale nor to refund any interest or other expenses incurred by the Buyer where payment is made by the Buyer in circumstances where an export licence is not granted.

iii) the Original Buyer must have remained the owner of the lot without disposing of any interest in it to any third-party
iv) The Buyer's sole and exclusive remedy against the Seller in place of any other remedy which might
be available, is the cancellation of the sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid for the lot less the buyer's premium which is non-refundable. Neither the Seller nor For-Auction will be liable for
any special, incidental nor consequential damages including, without limitation, loss of profits nor for interest.
v) The Buyer must give written notice of claim to us within 14 days of the date of the Auction. The Seller shall have the right, to require the Buyer to obtain two written opinions by recognised experts in the field, mutually acceptable to the Buyer and For-Auction to decide whether or not to cancel the sale under warranty.
vi) the Buyer must return the lot to Seller in the same condition that it was purchased.
