CONDITIONS OF SALE
Payment is due immediately after the sale. All the property is sold in the condition in which it is offered for sale. No claim can be accepted after the fall of the hammer. All prospective buyers shall have the opportunity to inspect each lot for sale during the pre-sale exhibition in order to satisfy themselves as to characteristics, size, repairs or restoration. Any possible modifications in the conditions of sale or in the descriptions of the catalog will be announced verbally during the sale and noted on the official report. The successful purchaser will be the highest bidder and will be obliged to give his or her name and address. In case of contesting at the time of awarding, that is if two or more bidders simultaneously carried an equivalent bid, either aloud, or by sign and demand at the same time this object after the pronouncement of the "awarded/adjugé" word, the aforementioned object will immediately be handed in auction to the proposed price by the bidders and the public will be allowed to bid again.
BUYER’S PREMIUM AND PAYMENT
In addition to the hammer price, the buyer shall pay on each lot a buyer’s premium equal to 23% VAT included (19,1667 % VAT not included), of the hammer price.
Payment is due immediately after the sale:
- Cash in Euros: for French resident (private or professionals) to an equal or lower amount of € 1 000 per sale (but to an amount of € 15 000 for a non-French resident);
- Bank wire transfer in Euros (BRISCADIEU’s account number on request)
- Credit card: Visa, MasterCard, China Unionpay
Please note that purchases can only be collected after payment in full. In the event of non-payment by the successful bidder of the due sum, in the month following the auction sale and after a formal demand remained fruitless, BRISCADIEU BORDEAUX Auction House will begin a procedure of recovering the sum. The buyer will be registered on the file centralized by incident of payment of the SYMEV (www.symev.org) and the total expense will stay at his/her expense. One month after the auction sale, and on the seller’s request, the sale can be cancelled without possible recourse.

Purchases are stored for free for 14 days.
Past that time, BRISCADIEU BORDEAUX will charge storage fees.
