      6. All items damaged by the Participant during the Pre-auction Viewing are the Participants’ responsibility.  The Participant will be required to pay the amount of the intermediate price of the estimates, plus the Buyer’s Premium of thirty percent (30.0%) to the House of Craven.
      7. Before the sale, prospective Bidders or their agents should inspect the Property before bidding to determine its condition, size and whether or not it has been repaired or restored. Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of the Property and the matters referred to in the Catalogue entry. Condition reports, photos and video or digital images are provided as a courtesy and should not be used as a substitute for viewing the items in person. All statements made in the Catalogue or in the condition report or made orally or in writing elsewhere are statements of opinion and are not to be relied on as statements of fact. House of Craven and the Consignor assume no risk, liability, or responsibility for the authenticity of the authorship of any Property identified in this Catalogue. All Property is sold “As is, Where is” and neither House of Craven nor the Consignor make any warranties or representations of any kind or nature with respect to the Property, and no statement in the Catalogue or made at the sale, or in the bill of sale or invoice or elsewhere shall be deemed an assumption of liability or warranty or representation as to the description, genuineness, attribution, provenance or condition of the Property. House of Craven and the Consignor make no representations as to whether Buyer acquires any reproduction rights in the Property.

 

    1. EXTENT OF LIABILITY FOR CONDITION.
      1. All items are available for examination prior to sale as defined in Section II.A., Page 2: “Viewing”. Bidders are encouraged to examine all items in which they have an interest. House of Craven tries to accurately to describe the items being sold, but all Property offered for sale is strictly “As is, Where is”, and with all faults. It is the Bidder’s responsibility to determine the exact condition and authenticity of each item. No statement whether written or oral, made in the Catalogue, advertisement, invoice, gallery posting, announcement or comment by the auctioneer, or otherwise, shall be deemed to create any warranty or assumption of liability.
      2. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the Lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear, defect or effects of aging. Many items are of an age or nature, which preclude their being in perfect condition, and we will make reference to damage and/or restoration in the Catalogue or by other means of condition report when we find such defects. We provide this information for guidance only and the description of “being in good condition” or absence of such reference does not imply that an item is free from any defects or restoration nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. The condition of the Lots (with or without frame, general condition, defects) described on the Catalogue is not complete. Please note that we are unable to get rid of misprints completely. Prospective Buyers, therefore, are strongly advised to examine personally any Lot in which they are interested at pre-sale Viewing (See Section II.A., Page 2: “Viewing”). Prospective Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of Lots and the matters referred to in the Catalogue description and making bid on the basis of their own judgment. We will not accept any cancellation of sales contract because of the difference between Catalogue description and real state of the Lot.
      3. Unless noted, all items have some amount of acceptable wear, scratches, nicks, etc. Estimates are of market value and are designed to help Buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular Lot. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium. By bidding, you are entering a contract, and you are agreeing that you have either closely examined the item(s), have chosen not to examine them, or have hired an independent agent to examine the item(s) for you.
      4. Lots are sold “As Is, Where Is” and the Buyer agrees to the following:
      1. All information in the Catalogue concerning authenticity is guaranteed for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of sale. Within that time, prior to payment to the Consignor of the work, the Buyer may submit, at his own expense, an opinion in writing from a recognized expert on the work at issue regarding authenticity. In the event the work is judged inauthentic by the expert, the work may be returned in the same condition as at time of sale and the Buyer’s full purchase price will be refunded. Refunds shall not include costs of transportation, insurance, or other expenses that may have been incurred by the Buyer. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to make payment in a timely fashion such, that the Property can be released and inspected within these thirty (30) day timeframe and sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA).
      2. House of Craven is not responsible for any typographical errors, wear on furniture, flakes, surface scratches, or manufacturing flaws in glass or ceramics. No warranty is made regarding the condition of artwork frames.
      3. No warranty is made regarding the working condition of watches, clocks, electronic or mechanical devices of any sort or that any such item is in working condition or without defects, restorations, or working parts.
      4. All measurements are approximate. House of Craven makes no warranty that a Buyer acquires any copyright, trademark or reproduction rights as to any Lot purchased.
      5. In perpetuity, House of Craven owns all images and descriptions and watermarked images.  House of Craven reserves the rights to reproduce or sell any image of any Lot sold at auction. Images may not be used without my express written permission of the House of Craven.

SHIPPING PARTNERSHIPS.

 

As the Buyer of auction items, you have the flexibility to choose the shipping vendor based on your preferences and research. This means you can consider factors such as shipping speed, reliability, and cost when selecting a shipping provider. It's a common practice for buyers to explore different shipping options to find the most suitable one for their needs.  Please note, the following are shippers House of Craven has had past success. It is the responsibility of the buyer and shipper to complete the transaction and liability for the items is transferred to the buyer and shipper once the item is collected from House of Craven.

 

Here are a few steps you might consider when choosing a shipping vendor:

 

  1. Research Shipping Providers:
    • Look into various shipping companies and carriers.
    • Compare their services, rates, and delivery times.
  1. Consider Your Location and Item Size:
    • Some shipping providers may be more efficient or cost-effective for certain regions.
    • Consider the size and weight of the auction items, as this can impact shipping costs.
  1. Check for Shipping Insurance:
    • Verify if the shipping provider offers insurance coverage for the value of the items being shipped.
  1. Read Reviews:
    • Look for customer reviews and feedback about the shipping providers you are considering as a gauge for their reliability and customer satisfaction.
  1. Contact the House of Craven:
    • Communicate with the House of Craven to confirm any specific shipping requirements or recommendations we might have.
  1. Track Shipments:
    • Choose a shipping vendor that provides tracking information, so you can monitor the progress of your shipment.

    • If the items are being shipped internationally, be aware of customs regulations and choose a shipping vendor experienced in international shipping and knowledge of any additional value-added tax, or VAT.
  1. Verify Shipping Costs:
    • Ensure that you are aware of the total shipping costs, including any potential additional fees or taxes.

 

By taking these steps, you can make an informed decision about the shipping vendor that best aligns with your needs and preferences as the buyer of auction items.

IX. SCOPE OF LIABILITY.

 

 

  1. Limited Right of Rescission. If within twenty-one (21) days of the sale of any Lot, the Buyer gives notice in writing to House of Craven alleging that the identification of authorship (as defined in the Catalogue Glossary and set forth in the heading in quotation marks in the auction Catalogue) of such Lot as set forth in the Catalogue description of such Lot (as amended by any written notices or verbal announcements during the sale) is not substantially correct based on a fair reading of the Catalogue, and (b) if within fourteen (14) days of such notice the Buyer returns the Lot to House of Craven in the same condition as when sold, and (c) establishes the written allegations to House of Craven’ satisfaction (including by providing one or more written opinions by recognized experts in the field, as House of Craven may reasonably require), then the sale will be rescinded with only the purchase price and Buyer’s premium refunded after a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) has been fully executed by all parties. No reimbursement shall be made for any shipping costs incurred. If, prior to receiving such notice from the original Buyer alleging such defect, House of Craven has paid the Consignor monies owed to him in connection with this sale, House of Craven agrees to refund only the Buyer’s premium and applicable sales taxes paid. Consignor agrees to refund any payments made to Consignor for such Property. In the event the Consignor refuses to refund the payments, House of Craven may disclose the identity of the Consignor and assign to Buyer House of Craven’ rights against the Consignor with respect to the Lot the sale of which is sought to be rescinded. Upon such disclosure and assignment, any liability of House of Craven as Consignor’s agent with respect to the said Lot shall automatically terminate. 
  2. Limitation of Liability. We shall in no way be liable for any accidents to the Lot (including destruction, loss, theft, damage, or soiling) after the time of delivery (which shall mean the time at which we deliver the Lot to the Successful Bidder, to his agent or messenger, or to a carrier at us). Furthermore, we shall not be liable for accidents even when we select the shipping company or packages the Lot in accordance with the Successful Bidder’s wishes pursuant to instructions in the Shipping Instruction Form, regardless of the suitability of the shipping company or packaging. The Successful Bidder shall under its own responsibility and at its own expense insure the delivery of the Lot and packaging, shipping and handling. If, for any reason a purchased Lot cannot be delivered in the same condition as at the time of sale, or should any purchased Lot be stolen, mis-delivered or lost prior to delivery, House of Craven shall not be liable for any amount in excess of that paid by the Buyer. For any electrical items, House of Craven neither expresses nor implies a warranty as to the functionality or the safety of the item.
  3. Governing Law and Jurisdiction. The Conditions of Sale, as well as the Buyer’s, Consignor’s and House of Craven’ respective rights and obligations shall be governed, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida.
