The company “ANTEO SUBASTAS” (hereinafter, the “Room”) is a Contracting Centre, intermediation (services) and sale by auction or direct sale of own assets or assets assigned by their owners or lawful holders for this purpose, acting as mediator.

Any statement made in the catalogue on authorship, authenticity, source, age, origin, measurements and state of the lot (see IV Terms) is based on what its owners and/or vendors have represented and, as the case may be, when expressly requested by them, following through research and advice. Nevertheless, the Room disclaims all liability on the accuracy of the foregoing.

Consequently, the purchasers must check before the auction that the description of a particular lot matches their personal opinion.

A disagreement between two or more bidders as to the amount of the highest bid and, in general, any difference arising amongst the auction bidders, will be settled by the auction Manager, who will award the lot as he deems fit, in a final manner. If the auction Manager does not settle the disagreement or difference amongst the bidders when it arises, the Room will be entitled to hold a new auction for the relevant lot in the same gathering or the one immediately thereafter, or it may proceed with a private auction of the lot.

In On-Line Auctions, if there is a draw between two maximum bids, the last one made will always prevail.

11.- PACKAGING AND TRANSPORTATION EXPENSES. SPECIAL PERMITS

All costs incurred in packaging and transporting the awarded lot will be borne by the awardee/purchaser, who will be solely liable for any damage caused thereto in itinere.

The awardee/purchaser will be in charge of obtaining and contributing, as applicable and at its sole cost, any legal and administrative documentation, licences and permits, including export and import licences, which may be eventually required by any national and international Public Authorities and Administrations, in order to legally transport the lots awarded and/or acquired in the Room.

During exhibition days and hours, the Room will make a help desk available to the public, consisting of a group of experts, who will provide information on the state of conservation, known author, market prices or any other details related to the lots included in the auction catalogues.

The procurement of this documentation will not affect any purchase; the awardee will pay the price of the lot to the Room and any other amounts accrued.

 

ABOUT THE PURCHASER

15.- REFERENCES

The Room may request references on any potential participants as bidders in an auction. Likewise, the Room may request bank reference or other guarantees from the awardee/purchaser of one or several lots, if this is deemed appropriate.

The Room and auction Manager may reject any bid without having to provide any justification or explanation whatsoever.

Whilst the lots are being exhibited, anybody intending to participate in an auction will check the state and other conditions of the item to be purchased, in order to confirm that the catalogue description reflects his examination.

16.- BIDS IN WRITING AND BY PHONE

The Room may make a bid and announce, over time and according to the circumstances of the auction, any offers it has received in writing from any bidders, formalised in the forms provided by the Room for this purpose or by any other electronic or remote means. This service is cost-free. All Lots will be awarded at the lowest price allowed by the other bids and any reserve prices. If more than one offer for the same Lot is received, for the same price, the first offer received by the Room will be granted priority for its subsequent award in the auction, by date and time of receipt. The Room reserves the right to reject any bids received after 2:00 p.m. on the day of the auction, without having to provide any justification or explanation whatsoever.

Bids may be placed by phone, for lots with a starting price that is equal to or greater than 500€, which will also be formalised in writing in the forms provided by the Room or through any other electronic or remote means. An order to place a bid by phone means that the bidder undertakes to at least cover the starting price. The Room hereby disclaims all liability for the failure or loss of telephone contact, in which case the Room will cover the bidder’s starting price.

In the event of a draw between a bid made in the Room and one made in writing, the latter will prevail.

17.- AWARD AND STORAGE EXPENSES

Any persons intending to make a bid at the auction must complete the standard file request or form to confirm their future purchases, further to the terms of the auction, which will be provided by the Room at the desk enabled for this purpose, thereafter assigning a number to each bidder.

All awarded lots will be paid by the awardee/purchaser within a maximum of seven days and withdrawn within a maximum of twenty calendar days; both timeframes will begin to run as of the auction award date. If this second timeframe expires without the awardee/purchaser having withdrawn the acquired lot or lots, custody and storage costs will accrue by lot/day of 5 Euros; if fifteen calendar days transpire since the auction date without the purchaser paying and/or withdrawing the lots, “ANTEO SUBASTAS” may either deem the sale as terminated and auction the lot again, or bring legal action to claim the final awarded price of the lot not paid, as well as claiming a penalty consisting of legal interest and storage expenses since the auction date. As for any future damage that may be caused to the awarded lots, these will be entirely paid by the awardee/purchaser.

18.- DUTIES OR COMMISSIONS OF THE ROOM

The total payable by the awardee/purchaser to the Room as duties or commissions for participating in the transaction will be 18% over the final awarded price, plus applicable VAT. Any amounts representing packaging costs, insurance, lot transportation and storage, as they gradually accrue after the award, will be separately paid to the Room, along with applicable tax, by the awardee/purchaser.

GENERAL CONTRACTING TERMS FOR THE VENDOR

Upon acceptance of the lot, and always based on the statements made by its owner and/or vendor, the Room will describe it in the relevant admission receipt or slip.

Once a lot is accepted, even if delivered by the owner and/or vendor, the Room will act as depository. Likewise, it will expertize and appraise the lot through qualified staff, including its restoration, framing, conservation and/or cleaning, all insofar as expressly requested by the depositor/vendor.

The price of the foregoing activities or services will be paid by the depositor/vendor to the Room, as it may decide, in advance and separately; or the relevant amount may be deducted by the Room when settling the lots in favour of the depositor/vendor, after the auction and award.

Consequently, the purchasers must check before the auction that the description of a particular lot matches their personal opinion.

The depositor/vendor hereby grants the Room the right to photograph and illustrate any lot to be auctioned, including the possibility of using said photographs and illustrations at its total discretion, including for these purposes the use of electronic means and support.

7.- USAGE AND RULES

As mediator and when auctioning the lots entrusted, the Room will follow any applicable rules in force at all times, as well as any commercial usage traditionally governing this type of transaction.

9.- INSURANCE OF DEPOSITED ASSETS

“ANTEO SUBASTAS” holds an insurance policy to cover any potential loss or damage to the assets deposited in its care. Both the value agreed and the starting price will be guaranteed, subject to deducting the Room’s commissions.

If one month expires since the failure to award the lot at the relevant auction, and the depositor/vendor does not act or instruct the Room in the terms of either of the foregoing alternatives, it will be presumed that the lot is held by the Room and is expressly authorised by the depositor/vendor, as a mediator and without the need for prior notice, to directly sell the lot in question at the minimum sale price established at the time or to hold a new auction. In this case, the Room may set the starting price it deems appropriate, up to a limit of 40% less than the former price established for that same lot.

11.- APPRAISAL SERVICE

The Room has an appraisal service in order to provide written appraisals in the case of painting, jewellery and other works of art, libraries, books and manuscripts for insurance, wills, distribution of assets, award to pay debts and others.

14.- RIGHT TO WITHDRAW THE LOTS

Should the depositor/vendor decide, following the appraisal of a lot and/or inclusion of a lot in a catalogue, to not carry out the sale in an auction, for which the Room’s mediation was requested, the latter will be entitled to demand 32% of the price, as expenses incurred and indemnification, representing its commissions, plus applicable VAT, expenses and storage services- at a rate of 5 €/day since the date indicated in the admission receipt or slip-, insurance, issue of the catalogue and transportation, should the depositor/vendor not have already paid for these items.

The lot will be returned to the depositor/vendor provided that it has paid the aforementioned items.

15.- DUTIES OR COMMISSIONS OF THE ROOM

Upon settlement in favour of the depositor/vendor of the awarded price for the lot auctioned or sold, the Room will deduct 17% as commissions or duties, for its mediation, to which will be added applicable VAT.

16.- ASSIGNEMENT OF ACTIONS IN A COURT CLAIM

If one month expires since a lot was awarded in an auction without the awardee/purchaser paying the final awarded price, the Room will use its best endeavours and take the necessary steps to obtain the relevant amounts from the awardee/purchaser; should these steps be unsuccessful, the depositor/vendor will have two options: (i) to hold another auction for the lot, or (ii) to duly empower the Room, its lawyers and/or court attorneys in order to bring a claim in court, in which case the depositor/vendor will bear any expenses arising from or accrued in such judicial proceedings.

In the event that the depositor/vendor does not act or instruct the Room in the terms of either of the foregoing alternatives, the depositor/vendor hereby expressly authorises the Room to directly sell the lot in question, without the need for prior notice, or to hold another auction, at the starting price and/or minimum sale price established at the time. For these purposes, the Room will be expressly empowered to use any means, systems and electronic/commercial supports it deems appropriate.

17.- SETTLEMENT FOR THE VENDOR

The Room will issue a settlement for the depositor/vendor of the relevant amount, after deductible expenses, Room commissions, copyright- if any- and tax, thirty days following the auction date, as long as the lot has been paid by the awardee/purchaser. In the event of non-payment by the awardee/purchaser, the provisions of the preceding Term will apply.
