Sala de Ventas Barcelona is an auction room whose objective is the intermediation in the sale, after a voluntary auction, of goods, artistic objects or of a similar nature that are entrusted to it for this purpose, acting as a mediator between the owner-seller and the possible buyers.

As is international custom, Sala de Ventas Barcelona will not be liable for these opinions to be correct, and will not accept any responsibility for their reasons.
D. The indication in running status, referring to a watch, means that it is in operation or that it contains all the parts that will allow it to start up with a repair.
E. In no case will Sala de Ventas be responsible for damage caused to glass and picture frames.
F. All gem weights and measurements are approximate, due to the inability to take exact measurements due to the jewel setting or design. The color and clarity of the set diamonds will only be indicated as a guide, since their full determination can only be made once they have been disassembled.
G. The measurements of the furniture and objects are issued with the greatest possible precision, but due to the formal characteristics of many of them, they must be approximate.
H. Sala de Ventas Barcelona, its employees and agents will not have any responsibility for damage or loss of property caused by:
• Third parties acting with the consent of the depositor-seller.
• Conditions or defects inherent to the goods.

The mere fact of participating in the auction, either as a seller, bidder, or even as a spectator, insofar as they affect you, implies accepting and submitting to these General Conditions.
2. Relationship with buyers:
A. Every buyer must identify himself positively, the first time he participates in an auction, by means of a document proving his identity, ID or CIF, sending a copy of it to Sala de Ventas Barcelona by fax or by mail. Sala de Ventas Barcelona reserves the right to request references from those who intend to participate as bidders in an auction. It may also require bank references or any other type of guarantees from the successful bidder. The data provided at the time of accreditation as a bidder will be those that will appear on the purchase invoice, without the possibility of modification without just cause.
Sala de Ventas Barcelona will not be able to accept bids from clients or not award them auctions, in case their solvency is not duly accredited or they have previously been in default in an auction.
B. The buyer will be the one who made the highest valid bid, which will acquire the auctioned object at the award price indicated at the time of the hammer blow. To this price, 18% will be added for the room's intermediation fees and the corresponding VAT. Any disagreement in this regard will be resolved by the auction director using his absolute discretion, in accordance with the provisions of the general conditions.
C. During the exhibition days prior to the auction, Sala de Ventas Barcelona makes written bid sheets available to potential buyers, also included in the catalog, in order to facilitate the acquisition of lots to those interested without having to go to the auction.

If the successful bidder of a lot does not pay the total amount of the operation, he must in any case pay the Barcelona Sales Room the commissions, expenses and insurance that any buyer must pay on the auction price.

E. The team of experts in the room, once the different lots have been studied and in agreement with the seller, will establish a sales starting price for each lot. This price will appear on the delivery note of the objects to be auctioned.

In any case, there is the possibility that the depositor-seller requests in writing that this power does not apply to specific pieces or lots.
The depositor-seller will assume responsibility for the damage or loss of the objects deposited in the warehouse.
N. After a reasonable period of 15 business days, from the date they should have been removed, without the seller removing the lot from his property or if the amount stipulated as warehouse will not be paid and without prejudice to any other decision that is taken by the room regarding future collaborations, from that moment it is authorized to put the corresponding lot or lots for sale for a value equal to 60% of the established starting price for the auction and, ultimately, if neither sold, when the amount owed for storage exceeds the value for which it was initially put up for auction, the lot will become the property of the room, under the conditions established in point M.

In the event that a lot has been awarded in the sale to the highest bidder, but the buyer does not pay its price within the established period and the conditions offered to the buyer are met, the room will consider the sale void, being able to withdraw the lot and locate it in the warehouses of the room. From the moment the vendor is notified by the room of said circumstance, unless expressly notified in writing, the provisions of sections L and M regarding direct sale, withdrawal and storage will apply.
