Terms & Conditions
CONDITIONS OF SALE
These conditions, together with any special conditions or ‘General Notes’, are the only terms and conditions subject to which Peter Davies & Sons Limited (“PDS”) acting as agents for the Vendor(s) will contract with buyers. Bidding for any lot shall be deemed to be an acceptance of these conditions and any special conditions and conditions in the ‘General Notes’. In the event of an inconsistency arising between these conditions and point in any special conditions and the ‘General Notes’, then PDS reserves the right to elect which condition(s)/term(s) shall be applied.
2: Inspection and Description
2.1 Buyers are strongly recommended (and have a responsibility) to attend the view day(s) and to make their own inspection on all matters relating to all lots; they must satisfy themselves, prior to the sale, as to the condition, quantities and description of a lot together with its fitness and suitability for purpose.
2.2 Goods are believed to be correctly described but all goods are sold with all faults, imperfections and errors of description.
2.3 Neither PDS or the Vendor(s), nor their servants or agents, makes or gives, nor has any person in the employment of them, any authority to make or give, any representation or warranty in relation to any lots.
3: Limitation of Liability
3.1 Neither PDS or the Vendor(s), their servants or agents shall be liable for any loss or damage suffered by a buyer arising out of or in connection with any defects or deficiencies in any lots purchased, errors of description in the auction catalogue, any misstatements as to any matter affecting the lots or the failure of the lots to fulfil the functions for which they were intended.
3.2 PDS’s and the Vendor’s(s’) total liability for breach of contract or negligence in any matter/claim is strictly limited to the bid price and the related buyer’s premium and VAT.
3.3 Neither PDS nor the Vendor(s) shall be liable for any indirect or consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit, loss of business or otherwise) incurred by a buyer whatsoever.
3.4 Nothing in these conditions excludes or limits the liability of PDS or the Vendor(s) for death or personal injury caused by their negligence or fraudulent misrepresentation.
3.5 Nothing in these conditions shall prejudice the statutory rights of a consumer who shall be bound by these conditions only insofar as they are consistent with such statutory rights.
4: Conduct of Sale
4.1 PDS reserves the right in its absolute discretion to refuse admission to premises and grounds to any person without having to provide a reason.
4.2 The conduct of the sale shall be at PDS’s sole discretion and PDS reserves the right to refuse any bids without giving any reason. If any dispute of whatsoever nature relating to a bid or bids arises, such dispute(s) shall be determined by PDS in its absolute discretion and whose decision shall be final and binding on all parties concerned.

4.8 The sale price is exclusive of the buyer’s premium and VAT.

The Buyer will be held personally and solely liable for a bid unless PDS has previously agreed in writing with the Buyer that that bidder will do so on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to PDS. In circumstances where PDS has so agreed, the Buyer and the third party will jointly and severally be liable for all obligations arising from the bid where a third party shall be bound by these conditions by the individual bidding as their agent in the same way as if they were bidding personally.

5.3 In no circumstances will PDS or the Vendor(s) be responsible if any Goods or part thereof be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed after the Buyer is declared.

5.5 Should any third party claim title to any part or all of any lot sold, then the Vendor(s) reserves the right to rescind the Contract (prior to removal) for the sale of that lot and refund to the Buyer any monies paid by the Buyer, together with associated buyer’s premium and VAT, for the lot concerned.
5.6 Title to each of the Goods will not pass until:-

(iii) to provide any documentation required under these conditions;
(iv) to remove the Goods in a safe or satisfactory way; or
(v) to remove any lot on or before the date specified for removal,
the Vendor(s) will be entitled to rescind the Contract forthwith without incurring any liabilities to the Buyer and (without prejudice to any claims of the Vendor(s) and/or PDS against the Buyer arising from breach of contract or otherwise) upon rescission as aforesaid the following provisions apply:-
(a) all monies deposited in part payment will be forfeited;

(e) neither PDS nor the Vendor(s) shall be liable to account to the Buyer in the event of a re-sale at a higher price than the price contracted to be paid by the Buyer. The Buyer waives any claim in such a case that they may have title to the lot and agrees that any re-sale price shall be deemed commercially reasonable; and
