As a convenience to the buyer Wilkinson’s are pleased to provide condition reports, which are meant as a guide only. Buyers are reminded that they should inspect the property at the pre-sale viewings to satisfy themselves as to the condition, any restoration, damage, origin, date, age, authorship, attribution and provenance.
The absence of reference to the condition of the lots in the catalogue (and online catalogue) description does not imply that the lot is absent of imperfections or faults of any kind.
Any statement made by the Auctioneer from the rostrum before accepting any bids shall be deemed to supersede any conditions, notices, descriptions and statements made in the catalogue are elsewhere.
Wilkinson’s endeavour to catalogue all lots correctly, however should any lot prove to be a deliberate forgery, the auctioneers upon receipt of a written notice of such within seven days of the sale, shall rescind the sale, provided that the lot is returned within fourteen days of the sale in the same condition as at the time of sale. The benefit of this guarantee shall not be assignable. By making a bid, each buyer conditions, the damages recoverable by the vendor or the auctioneers from the defaulters shall include any loss incurred on sale, together with commission and expenses in respect of both sales.
