Selkirk Payment Terms: PAYMENT: Invoices are emailed to the successful bidder within three business days of the auction.

There will be a late fee of one and one half (1 1/2) percent per month with a minimum of $10 on all invoices not paid within 28 days after the auction. You are responsible for paying in US DOLLAR currency. You are responsible for any currency-conversion fees if not paid in US DOLLARS. Selkirk reserves the right to take possession of any items not paid within 28 days, for re-sale, at bidder's expense. You will be responsible for any difference between net selling price and original invoice, including storage fees. Bad debts will be reported to appropriate credit agencies.

Selkirk Condition Report Policy: You are encouraged to request a condition report for any item prior to bidding. Failure to request a condition report for any item will result in a forfeiture of bidder's rights under the terms of our guarantee (see specific policy for more information). Information contained in condition reports may at times contain addendum(s) to the bold line description described in Selkirk's guarantee policy. Notwithstanding saleroom addendums regarding the boldline description, the condition report is meant to be informational to the buyer and does not preclude Garth's policy regarding guarantee of bold line descriptions.
