Ritchies may also execute telephone bids as a convenience to a purchaser but will not be held responsible for errors or failures to execute such telephone bid. The purchaser consents to the recording of any telephone conversation as may be required by law and/or Ritchies.

If identical bids are left by two or more parties, the first bid received by Ritchies will take priority. Ritchies shall not be responsible for errors or failures to execute such bids.

11.) Parties attending Ritchies premises before, during or after the sale, do so at their own risk and shall have no claim against Ritchies in respect to any personal or property damage which may be sustained however caused.

It is the buyer's responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import licenses. Lots purchased shall be paid for in accordance with all Conditions of Sale and the denial of any export or import license or any delay in the obtaining of such licenses shall not justify the rescission or cancellation of any sale or any delay in making payment of the total purchase price for the lot.
Although licenses can be obtained to export some items which are the subject of these laws, other items may not be exported. Please check with the specialist department if you are uncertain as to whether an item is affected by the above laws or other related laws which restrict exportation.
