o split, to change or to withdraw lots before the a
ctual final sale.
3. All objects put up for auction can be viewed an

not liable for any defects. The liability for dama
ge to life, body or health shall remain unaffected.
In case of a justified claim, however, he will acce

within a period of 12 months, running from the fall
of the hammer. In the event of a successful claim
the auctioneer will refund the hammerprice
4. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctione

ions the auctioneer to place bids on his behalf dur
ing the auction. In cases where there is a
discrepancy between number and title in a written b
id the title shall prevail.
6. Telephone and direct online bidding via the inte
rnet must be approved in advance by the auctioneer.
The auctioneer cannot be held liable for
faulty connections or transmission failure. In such
a case the bidder agrees to bid the reserve price
of the corresponding lot. For such bidding the
regulations of long distance contracts do not apply
(Fernabsatzverträge) [cf § 312d IV,5 BGB].
7. On the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer title to
the offered lot will pass to the acknowledged bidde

Due to the work overload of the accounting departme
nt during auctions, invoices generated during or di
rectly after an auction require careful
revision and possible correction; errors excepted.
9. Auction lots will, without exception, only be ha
nded over after pay
ment has been made. C
redit cards (VISA, Mastercard, American Express),
checks and any other form of non-cash payment are a

e rate risk and all bank charges shall be
borne by the buyer. Storage and dispatch are at the
expense and risk of the

the invoice the
outstanding amount will be billed separately.

and for payment. The purchase price shall be due f
or payment upon the lot being knocked down
to the buyer. In case of a delayed payment (two wee
ks after the sale) the purchaser will be held respo
nsible for all resultant damages, in particular
interest and exchange losses. In case of payment de
fault the auctioneer will charge interest on the ou
tstanding amount at a rate of 1% to the gross
price per month or part of month. In such an event
the auctioneer reserves the right to annul the pur
chase contract without further notice, and to
claim damages from the buyer for non-fulfilment, ac
cordingly he can re-auction the goods at the buyer’
s expense. In this case the buyer is liable for
any loss incurred, the buyer shall have no claim if
a higher price has been achieved. He will not be p
ermitted to bid.

rlin. German law applies exclusively; the UN-Treaty
(CISG) is explicitly excluded.
12. The prices quoted after each lot are estimates,
13. The after-sales is part of the auction in which
the bidder places either by telephone or in writte
n form (as stated in number 5 and 6) the order to
bid a set amount.
14. By making a bid, either verbally in the auction
, by telephone, written by letter, by fax, or throu
gh the internet the bidder confirms that he has
taken notice of these terms of sale by auction and
accepts them. Agents who act on behalf of a third p
arty are jointly and separately liable for the
fulfillment of contract on behalf of their principa
15. Should one or the other of the above terms of s
ale become wholly or partly ineffective, the validi
ty of the remainder is not affected. In the event
of a dispute the German version of the above condit
ions of sale is valid.
