    REMARKS & SPECIAL CONDITIONS OF SALE (Supplementary to our Terms & Conditions, linked above)

    This is a TRADE AUCTION only. No bids should be made by any bidder in their capacity as a consumer.

    Please note the following:
    - A Deposit of £500 will need to be paid to participate in this Timed Online Auction.
    - All deposits are to be paid via Sagepay. No deposits will be taken over the phone. This is a “reserved payment” system whereby your money will only be taken when you have successfully purchased or become the highest bidder on a lot and goes towards the total purchase price. The purchaser will then be responsible to pay the remaining amount due.
    - Upon failure of compliance with the Conditions, money deposited in payment will be forfeited and the Lots which may remain uncleared after the time aforesaid will be sold by public or private sale, without notice to the former Purchaser and the deficiency (if any) by such second sale, together with all charges attending the same, shall be made good by the defaulter at this sale.
    - Unsuccessful purchasers should note that refunds of deposits can take approximately 3 - 5 days, you will get an email at the time we have processed the release from our side and please check with you bank to ensure they do not have a longer return policy.

    Register early and don’t bid late! And please note the following:
    - Bids cannot be withdrawn at any time. All bids are contractually binding. The highest bidder to be the Purchaser and no bidding shall be retracted after the hammer has fallen. The Auctioneers reserve the right to refuse any bidding and in the event of any dispute the Lot may be up again at the Auctioneers’ discretion.
    - If your bid has the value up to or at the reserve, the bid will be taken at it's maximum to the reserve.
    - If the lot has no reserve or if your bid is forced above the reserve by other bidders, then our increment system comes into play and you will see what the next minimum bid can be on the bid page. If your maximum bid is above the increment, the bid will go to the increment, unless someone thereafter forces the bid up to your maximum. Bidders cannot place a bid with the same maximum that someone else has already placed, so a warning will tell you if your bid is the same. You may pay less than your maximum bid if you win, therefore, depending on other bidders.
    - Further tips on bidding in this auction can be found in our Guide To Timed Auctions HERE.

    If your bid wins, you must buy. Your bid on an auction is a legally binding contract, including provisional sales (highest bid below reserve).
