More About this Item
Condition of Sale
This notice is addressed by Cooee Art to any person who may be interested in a Lot, including registered Bidders and potential Bidders (including any eventual Buyer of the Lot).
1. OUR ROLE
In its role Cooee Art acts solely for and in the interests of the Seller. Our job is to sell the Lot at the highest price obtainable at the Sale to a Bidder.
2. DESCRIPTION OF GOODS
The Seller and Cooee Art warrant that the goods are as described in the catalogue and that the seller has clear title to the works that they are offering for sale.
Lots are sold to the Buyer on an "as is" basis, with all faults and imperfections. It is your responsibility to examine any Lot in which you are interested.
4. DESCRIPTIONS OF LOTS AND ESTIMATES AND CONDITION
Estimates are printed beside the Entry in the catalogue. They are an expression of Cooee Art's opinion of the range where Cooee Art thinks the Hammer Price for the Lot is likely to be; it is not an Estimate of value.
In respect of most Lots, we will produce a Condition Report regarding the Lot's physical condition upon request. Cooee Art is not entering into a contract
with you in respect of the Condition Report and accordingly does not assume responsibility to you in respect of it. Notwithstanding the aforementioned we undertake to prepare any Condition Report honestly, with integrity, and in good faith.
We do not accept bids from any person who has not completed to our satisfaction the Registration and Bidding Form. In addition anyone intending to place bids by telephone must apply for and complete a Telephone Bidding Form before the Sale. If you intend to bid through a third-party site (on-line aggregator) you must register your intention to do so and warrant that the information you provide is true and accurate. In all cases you must provide proof of identity, and your intended method of payment.
We may refuse entry and registration to our Website and our Sale and expressly reserve the right not to grant a Paddle to any applicant.
7. WINNING BIDS
The Buyer will be the Bidder who makes the highest bid for any Lot providing this bid equals or exceeds the Reserve set prior to the sale by the seller as per their contract with Cooee Art.
8. ADDITIONAL CHARGES
A Buyer's Premium of 25% (including GST) of the Hammer Price is payable on all lots. Collection and delivery is the responsibility of the buyer on lots.
Goods and Service Tax will be charged only on the Buyer's Premium, save for cases where the artwork is owned by a GST registered entity (e.g. a registered company or superannuation fund). Artworks owned by GST registered entities will be displayed in
the Sale Catalogue with a Dagger alongside the Lot Number. This symbol indicates that a work of art is subject to GST and therefore GST is applied to both the Hammer Price and the Buyer's Premium.
As a buyer you must ensure that you have readily available funds to pay the Purchase Price and the Buyer's Premium to us in full before making a bid for the Lot. If you are a successful Bidder, payment must be made no later than the end of the second working day after the Sale so that all sums are cleared by the seventh working day after the Sale.
The Buyer is responsible to organise the Delivery of the Lot. Cooee Art will provide the Buyer with a list of courier companies but will not organise or take responsibility for the delivery of artworks. Cooee Art will not release the artwork until the invoice has been paid in full. (unless we have made a special arrangement with the Buyer). Storage Fees may be charged for items that have not been collected after 7 days of the sale at a rate of $5 per Lot per day.
