Terms & Conditions
In these terms of business:
Kiwi Auctions Limited is referred to as ‘KA’.
The KA representative conducting the auction is referred to as the ‘auctioneer’.
2. Attribution and Condition of Lots
We make every effort to ensure the accuracy of any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age, provenance, and condition of any lot, whether or not such a statement forms part of the description of any such lot.
Any statement made orally or in the catalogue is an opinion given after careful consideration and research.
Written condition reports are available upon request for buyers unable to attend viewing in person.
When bidding, you acknowledge that you are fully satisfied as to the attribution and condition of the lot.
3. Third Party Liability
Every person on KA premises before, during or after a sale shall be deemed to be there at their own risk and shall have no claim against KA in respect of any injury they may sustain or any accident which may occur.
Any dispute not covered in these terms of business will be settled at the sole discretion of KA.
5. The Buyer
The highest bidder acknowledged as such by the auctioneer will be the buyer. If any dispute arises, the auctioneer has absolute discretion to settle the matter. The auctioneer rules the bidding and bids cannot be retracted. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse any bid.
The successful bidder, whether bidding for himself or for a third party, is entirely responsible for paying for the lots they have bought in accordance with KA terms of business.
The auctioneer reserves the right to bid on behalf of the vendors for any lot and to withdraw, consolidate or divide any lot or lots.
Prospective buyers need to register with The Saleroom prior to bidding

9. Ownership of Purchases
Ownership of lot(s) purchased will not pass to the buyer until they have paid KA in full and KA has applied the payment to the lot.
10. Transfer of Risk
Each lot is the buyer’s sole responsibility from the fall of the hammer and is sold with all faults and imperfections.
KA is not responsible for the correct description, genuineness or authenticity of any lot and makes no warranty whatsoever. The buyer is deemed to have inspected each lot and satisfied himself as to its condition.
Written condition reports are available upon request for buyers unable to attend viewing in person. We are unable to offer comprehensive condition reports on low value lots comprising multiple items. Refunds cannot be given with regards to condition on items purchased by buyers who have viewed their purchased lots. Refunds will only be considered if a written condition report has been issued and the description of condition is not as described.
11. Commission Absentee Bids
If instructed, KA will execute bids and advise prospective buyers.
Buyers who cannot come to a sale may leave their bid with our staff after viewing or make their bid in advance by telephone or email. Such bids are placed at the buyer’s own risk.
Bids must be made at least one hour before the sale starts, and we advise buyers to make bids within one hour of the close of the view day.
When making bids, buyers must provide:
- Their full name
- Email address
- Contact telephone numbers
- The number of the lot they wish to buy
- Their maximum bid amount – excluding commission which will be added to the invoice afterwards.
We will ensure that lots are bought as cheaply as possible depending on the bids made and other reserves. If identical bids are placed, the person who bid first will take precedence.
12. Absentee Bidding
Whilst every effort is made to execute absentee bidding, KA cannot be held responsible for any default or neglect in connection with this service. All such arrangements are made entirely at the prospective buyer’s risk.
