Sala de Ventas Barcelona is a contracting centre whose objective is to sell by voluntary auction the goods, art objects or other such items deposited for this purpose, acting as mediator between the owner-seller and potential buyers.

IV. Relaciones comerciales

A) .- The depositor guarantees to Sala de Ventas Barcelona and the buyer that they are the owner of the goods deposited or to be deposited, and has full rights over them, or is validly authorized by the owner to dispose of them, being able to transfer the ownership to these, and also guarantees that the goods are free of pending payments or charges, and there are no claims on them from the authorities.

B).- Following study by the expert committee and valuation, and according with the owner, an opening price will be fixed for the goods presented, and this will be noted on the bill of sale for the items to be auctioned, that amount need not be related to the value of the item. The commission or percentage for Sala de Ventas Barcelona from the sale of these items will also be set, typically 15%.

C) .- The objects deposited with Sala de Ventas Barcelona for auction are not insured, so that any damage suffered (burglary, theft, loss, breakage, flood, fire, etc..) will be at the risk of the seller.
However, Sala de Ventas Barcelona offers an insurance policy for depositor-sellers which can be invoiced at the time of the settlement of the lots sold.

D).- The depositor grants Sala de Ventas Barcelona the right to photograph and reproduce any goods whose sale will be entrusted, in any form and at any time, whether or not associated with the auction. In the event that such reproduction involves the payment of intellectual property rights, the amount of this fee will be deducted from the settlement to the depositor-seller.

E) .- After signing the contract for the sale of items to auction the depositor-seller cannot unilaterally withdraw any of the pieces of their property transferred to Arce Subastas to be auctioned.
Unsold lots remain exposed for a week after the auction, for direct sales at the asking price, unless the owner gives other instructions explicitly. The unsold lots shall be removed from the premises of Sala de Ventas Barcelona by the depositor-seller within three days following the period of direct sale. From that time on, storage and insurance costs of 5 Euros per week for each object or painting, and 10 euros per week for each piece of furniture will be charged. The depositor-seller assumes all responsibility for any damage to, or loss of, deposited objects.

F) .- The depositor seller authorises Sala de Ventas Barcelona to re-auction unsold lots that have not been removed within the prescribed time period with a starting price 40% lower than that initially established.

G) .- The settlement to the seller of the lots sold at auction will be made after the thirty-fifth day after the auction was held, excluding August (normally paying begins on the first Tuesday of exhibition of the following auction), providing that the payment due for these lots has been made by the buyer. In the case of complaint by the buyer requesting the cancellation of sale due to deliberate misrepresentation, and if Sala de Ventas Barcelona believes that the claim is valid, the seller allows it to cancel the sale and return the buyer amount paid by him by way of purchase of the lot in question.
The depositor-seller will return to Sala de Ventas Barcelona any amount they might have received from this transaction, must pay the corresponding commissions, of both buyer and Seller, to Sala de Ventas Barcelona and will meet this responsibility with all their present and future assets. Once all payments related to the cancelled sale have been received by Sala de Ventas Barcelona, Sala de Ventas Barcelona will return the goods of the lot in question to the depositor-seller.

h) .- In case of theft, loss, damage or any other circumstance that affects a lot and prevents the completion of the sale, either before or after being auctioned, and whatever the hammer price achieved, Sala de Ventas Barcelona will pay the depositor-seller the minimum sale price agreed, less the corresponding commission and sales tax (IVA/VAT).

La valoración está efectuada de acuerdo al más leal y buen entender.
