Vendor Terms
4. The Vendor

4.1 Kruger Gibbons shall act as agent of the Vendor only. Any contract for the sale of a Lot will be formed between the Vendor and the Buyer.
4.2 The Vendor warrants and represents to Kruger Gibbons and the Buyer that the Vendor is the sole and true owner of the Consigned Property or is properly authorised by the sole and true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. The Vendor warrants and representatives that the Vendor has revealed all pertinent information that the Vendor possesses about the items, including in relation to any repairs or alterations that may have been carried out.
The Vendor shall indemnify Kruger Gibbons and the Buyer against any loss and expense caused by any breach of this clause 4.2.
4.3 The Vendor shall be entitled to place prior to the Auction a reserve on any Lot, being the minimum Hammer Price at which Lot may be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and agreed with Kruger Gibbons. Kruger Gibbons may decline to offer goods which in Kruger Gibbons' opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in the terms of consignment). Reserves will not be accepted on items with a lower estimate less than £50. The Auctioneer also reserves the right not to accept items which they deem to be unsuitable for Auction. Any estimate given shall be an opinion and is not an undertaking, warranty or representation of any kind and will not have any legal effect.
4.4 A reserve once set cannot be changed except with the written prior consent of Kruger Gibbons.
4.5 Where a reserve has been placed only Kruger Gibbons may bid on behalf of the Vendor.
4.6 The Vendor authorises Kruger Gibbons to deduct commission from any sold items at a rate of 20% (plus VAT) on all items. Loss or liability for damage will be charged at a rate of 1% (plus VAT) calculated on the hammer price. A Marketing and Cataloguing fee of £2.50 (plus VAT) will be charged for each Lot in general auctions. If a lot is unsold, the estimate and/or reserve will automatically be reduced by up to 15% and re-entered into the next available auction.
4.7 Kruger Gibbons will pay the Hammer Price achieved for the Lot (less the commission and applicable fees in accordance with clause 4.6), to the Vendor on receipt of payment of the Total Amount Due in full by the Buyer. This payment is available via BACS; cash or cheque, no sooner than the 5th day following the sale of goods.
4.8 The Vendor authorises Kruger Gibbons in their discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty in the case of a Lot unsold at Auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if the Lot had been sold at Auction.
4.9 Kruger Gibbons do not themselves undertake the collection of any items but may, as the Vendor's agent, instruct a contractor on behalf of the Vendor. Kruger Gibbons disclaims any liability for the actions of such contractor who contracts with the Vendor direct.
4.10 Kruger Gibbons disclaims all liability for items delivered to their saleroom without sufficient sale instructions, and reserves the right to make a minimum warehousing charge of £1.00 plus VAT per lot per day. Unsold items are subject to the same charges if the Vendor does not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks Kruger Gibbons reserves the right to sell the items and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at the Vendor's expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal. Kruger Gibbons disclaims any liability for default by the Buyer or for paying out the Vendor before receiving payment by the Buyer.
4.11 Subject to clause 4.9, Kruger Gibbons holds all items on their premises and in their custody covered against the risks of fire, burglary and water damage on the scale of charges notified in the terms of consignment and payable by the Vendor up to the date of any sale and (in Kruger Gibbons' discretion) the Buyer thereafter until collection.
4.12 The right of Kruger Gibbons to bid on behalf of the Vendor is expressly reserved. The Vendor acknowledges that Lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to consignors at the time of the entry of the Lot.
4.13 The Auctioneer reserves the right to dispose of any item that in their opinion is unsaleable. Items, including electrical goods and soft furnishings or items not legal for sale without license, which does not comply with current legislation, will not be offered at Auction. Items disposed at the expense of the vendor, the total of which will be deducted from any sale proceeds. It is the responsibility of the vendor to ensure their goods comply to these standards, not that of any representative of Kruger Gibbons.
4.14 Any items unsold after an Auction will be reoffered in a subsequent Auction at an automatically reduced estimate and/or reserve (in accordance with clause 4.6). The Auctioneer may request the removal of an item if a reduced price would be below the minimum lot value of £10; items not removed within 14 days will be subject to a storage charge. Kruger Gibbons reserves the right to dispose of; donate; group lots or “sell at best with no reserve” any lot with a lot value less than £10.

NB: It is the responsibility of the vendor to enquire about their account with Kruger Gibbons. This includes (without limitation) the status of lots entered; monies due; disposals; donations and fee deductions. Kruger Gibbons will not be responsible for ignorance of these conditions.

4.15 A charge of 10% (plus VAT) based on the middle estimate – plus any other charges incurred (such as the marketing; cataloguing and/or liability fee) – may be levied for any Lot withdrawn by the Vendor from offer at an Auction. If the item has to be returned by post (or any other method) the Vendor will be responsible for this charge. These charges are to be paid before the item is collected.
4.16 By submitting the item to Kruger Gibbons for offer at Auction, the Vendor agrees to the Terms of Consignment and authorises Kruger Gibbons to deduct the specified charges.
4.17 Kruger Gibbons reserves the right to sell any item with discretion. All reserves are subject to a 10% discretional levy.
