AUCTIONEER AS ARBITER: The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid, to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion and 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.

TRANSFER OF TITLE: 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, subject to compliance by the buyer with these Conditions of Sale. Buyer thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility of the property sold, agrees to sign any requested confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the full price, plus Buyer's Premium, therefore or such part, upon such terms as Jeffers may require.
PAYMENT AND STORAGE: No lot may be removed from Jeffers' premises until the buyer has paid in full the purchase price therefor including Buyer's Premium or has satisfied such terms that Jeffers, in its sole discretion, shall require. Subject to the foregoing, all Property shall be paid for and removed by the buyer at his/her expense within ten (10) days of sale and, if not so removed, may be sold by Jeffers, or sent by Jeffers to a public warehouse, at the sole risk and charge of the buyer(s), and Jeffers may prohibit the buyer from participating, directly or indirectly, as a bidder or buyer in any future sale or sales.
