3. All items are sold "as is" at the time of assignment, regardless of the description in the catalog. The potential buyer is free to check the goods during the exhibition or even bring an expert along to inspect the lots. Anyone who cannot be present can request a condition report for the goods that interest them, at the latest 48 hours before the start of the auction day on which these goods are offered. After this term, the auction house cannot guarantee that such a request will be complied with. Condition reports are carried out with the necessary care. No one is infallible, so the lack of data regarding damage cannot be invoked as a fault of the auction house. The exhibition enables the public to examine the nature, condition and dating of the goods. By bidding, the prospective buyer proves to know the nature/condition of the goods and to accept them. After the surcharge, no further complaints will be accepted regarding. condition, nature, date, etc., nor will the buyer be able to rely on his relationship of trust with the auction house. All information, whether in writing or orally provided by us, is purely informative and not binding. They are an opinion only and are provided in good faith. Buyers should be aware that photos of the items may differ slightly from reality due to lighting during shooting (color, size, etc.).

4. Complaints regarding the condition, the nature, the date, in short, the overall condition of the goods are only accepted if the buyer can submit a well-founded and documented expertise from a recognized expert, and this within a period of fourteen days after the auction. Defects in the items that are already included in the description do not qualify as a complaint.

5. If an object is damaged by a potential customer, buyer will be held accountable for this. The customer, in turn, must inform his insurance broker of the accident. In such a case, the average between the lowest and highest estimate price applies as the standard for compensation to the contributor. Potential buyers, either in the auction room itself, or those bidding via a purchase order, by telephone or online will be notified of the damage by the auction house.

6.Once the allocation has been made, the lots are the responsibility of the buyer. No goods will be delivered during the auction.

7.Each buyer is obliged to identify himself. Personal data is only used internally. After identification, the customer receives a bid number.
