terms & Conditions

All goods submitted for sale are subject to the following conditions:-

1. By offering goods for sale vendors will be deemed to have accepted and agreed these conditions unless any variation has been agreed separately. Vendors must warrant that the items are their unencumbered goods to which they have good title in law. The vendor must indemnify the Auctioneer against any claim made in connection with any entered goods.

2. Charges are to include a 18% Commission Fee, a £2 Catalogue Fee per lot entered, insurance cover is charged at 1% of the hammer price (if required). If a lot is withdrawn prior to the sale without giving at least 5 days notice the Auctioneer reserves the right to charge a minimum of at least 10% of the reserved price or our estimated value if no reserve has been given.

3. Reserves will be accepted only if agreed by the Auctioneer. If a reserve is placed and the item fails to reach its reserve this item must be collected or otherwise entered without a reserve into the next sale. The Auctioneer has the right to vet lots which are subject to reserves and remove any which, after valuation, are deemed too high. The reserve will then be agreed between the Auctioneer and the Vendor or removed completely.

4. Collection/Delivery can be arranged and a price can be agreed. All transportation of any goods is done solely at the vendors/Purchasers risk. While every effort is made to ensure goods are collected/delivered in a sound condition MANOR HOUSE AUCTIONS accept no liability for the loss or damage to such goods that are transported or stored.

5. All goods must be collected in the due time otherwise the Auctioneer has the authority to dispose of any goods which are deemed to be of negligible value. Any items that are not collected will be liable to storage charges which start at a minimum of £2 per item per day. A minimum charge of £10 per item plus the delivery charge will be made on any unsold goods that have to be delivered back to the Vendor (payable on return or deducted from account).

6. MANOR HOUSE AUCTIONS endeavour to settle all vendors accounts no later than 30 DAYS this is assuming that payment has been made by the Purchaser to the Auctioneer. However Manor House Auctions will not accept any responsibility for any default by the Purchaser. If an item fails to be paid for, the item(s) will be returned to the Vendor or offered for re-sale at the next auction.
