General rules for live auction
All sales are final. No purchase can be returned, refunded or exchanged. All property is sold ‘’as is” as exhibited. Successful bidders must be prepared to pay for their purchase in cash, MasterCard, VISA or Interac on the evening of the auction. No GST or PST is applicable.
Projet HOPE makes no warranties or presentation of any kind or nature with respect to any work of art including, but not limited to, any representation or warranty of description, genuineness, provenance or physical condition, nor as to the right of reproduction, if any. Bidders and purchasers may not rely upon any statement of Projet HOPE, oral or otherwise, other than as set forth in these conditions of sale.
Conditions of sale
Each work carries an estimated market value obtained from sources that Projet HOPE believes to be reliable, but no representation or warranty as to be the actual resale value of any work being auctioned is made or implied. The estimated value is intended as a guide to assist you in your bidding.
All bids are per item as numbered & specified, unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale. If your bid is successful, you will be asked to pay for your purchase immediately. Title to the offered lot will then pass to you, and you will thereupon assume full risk and responsibility for the work purchased by you.
If the auctioneer determines that any opening bid is not commensurate with the estimated value of the work offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the work from the sale.
In the event of any dispute between bidders, a missed bid, or in the event of doubt as to the validity of a bid, the auctioneer will have, at his discretion, the final authority either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the work in dispute. If any dispute arises after the auction, the Project HOPE record of the auction proceedings shall be conclusive.
