Terms and Conditions

1. Registration

Prior to sale, all bidders must register with Artfact Live! Auctions to participate in live bidding. Bidders do not have the right to withdraw a bid once a Weschler’s auctioneer accepts it as a winning bid.

2. “As is” condition

The Auctioneer and the Consignor assume no risk, liability or responsibility for the authenticity or the authorship of any property identified in the catalogue (that is, the identity of the creator or the period, culture, source or origin as the case may be, with which the creation of any property is identified herein). All property is sold “As Is” and neither the Auctioneer nor the Consignor makes any warranties or representations of any kind or nature with respect to the property, and in no event shall be responsible for the correctness or any implied warranty or merchantability or any implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose as it relates to description, genuineness, attribution, provenance, safety, reliability or condition of the property. If any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose can be construed from the catalogue, auction, or bill of sale, such warranties are disclaimed by the Auctioneer and the Consignor. No statement in the catalogue or made at the sale or in the Bill of Sale or invoice or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an admission of liability.


3. Guarantee

Notwithstanding the preceding condition, if within 14 days of the date of the sale, on any lot, the purchaser must give notice in writing to the Auctioneer that the lot sold is a counterfeit and, if within 7 days after such notice the purchaser returns to the Auctioneer in the same condition as when sold, and gives written proof from a recognized impartial expert which establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the returned lot is in fact a counterfeit and that this was not indicated by a fair reading of the catalogue or the Auctioneer’s comments at the time of sale, the Auctioneer as agent for the Consignor will rescind the sale and refund the purchase price paid defined as the amount of the successful bid price, plus buyer’s premium. The guarantee is made only to the original purchaser of record (i.e., the registered bidder) and not any subsequent owners. The original buyer must have remained the owner of the lot without disposing of any interest in it to any third party.
The term counterfeit is defined as a modern fake or forgery, and made with the intent to deceive.


4. Withdrawal

The Auctioneer reserves the right to withdrawal any property at any time before actual sale.

5. Bidding

Unless otherwise announced by the Auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids are per lot as numbered in the catalogue. The Auctioneer reserves the right to reject a bid from any bidder. The highest bid acknowledged by the Auctioneer shall be the purchaser. 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 re-sell the article in dispute. If the Auctioneer determines that any opening bid is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, he may reject the bid; and if, having acknowledged an opening bid he decides that any advance is not sufficient, he may reject the advance.


6. Purchaser’s Responsability

On the fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer, title to the offered lot passes to the highest bidder who, thereupon will pay the full purchase price therefore or such part as the Auctioneer may require. All deposits may be applied to any or all purchases made by the purchaser at this or any previous sale. All property shall be removed by the purchaser at his expense on the day of sale and, if not so removed, may be sent by the Auctioneer to a public warehouse for the account, risk and expense of the purchaser. Any damage to or loss of any item purchased which is left with the Auctioneer after the day of purchase is the purchaser’s sole responsibility. If the foregoing conditions or any other applicable conditions herein are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to the Auctioneer and the Consignor by law, including without limitation the right to hold the purchaser liable for the bid price, the Auctioneer at its option, may either (a) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser, or (b) re-sell the property on 3 days notice to the purchaser and for the account and risk of the purchaser, either publicly or privately, and in such event the purchaser shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency plus all costs, including warehousing, the expenses of both sales, and the Auctioneer’s commission at its regular rates and all other charges due hereunder, and incidental charges. No claims shall be allowed after removal of goods and no article shall be re-sold for purchaser at the sale where purchased.

A premium equal to 17-1/2 percent of the successful bid price up to and including $50,000, and 10 percent of the successful bid price over $50,000 will be added thereto and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price.

The District of Columbia Sales Tax is computed on this total purchase price. The purchaser will be required to pay the Sales Tax unless exempted through possession of a valid District of Columbia Sales Tax number.

Please Note:
The District of Columbia has no arrangement of reciprocity with any other jurisdiction and the Auctioneer cannot honor a Sales Tax number from any other jurisdiction.

Buyers not known to the Auctioneer and planning to pay with a personal or business check are required to supply the Auctioneer with a bank letter of credit prior to the auction. If such arrangements are not made prior to the auction, purchases will be held by the Auctioneer until the check has cleared the bank.

7. Reserves

Unless the sale is advertised and announced as an unrestricted sale or sale without reserve, Consignors reserve the right to bid through the Auctioneer as agent on their own consignments.

8. Additional conditions

The Auctioneer reserves the right to cancel the sale or any portion thereof without prior or further notice, and to announce at any time additional conditions of sale.

Payment Information

Successful bidders are requested to make total payment for purchases by cash, Visa or MasterCard or pre-approved check on the day of sale.

Buyers not known to Weschler's and planning to pay with a personal or business check are required to supply us a bank letter of credit prior to the auction. If such arrangements are not made prior to the auction, purchases will be held by Weschler's until the check has cleared our bank.
