Sales conditions


Coutau-Bégarie Auction House guarantees

the authenticity of attribution of property

listed in the catalogue which can be modified

by saleroom notices or oral indications

given at the time of the sale, recorded in the

official sale record.

The correctness of the catalogue or other

description of the physical condition, size,

quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance,

exhibitions or historical relevance of

any property is a statement of opinion only.

Any illustrations in the catalogue are solely

for the guidance of prospective buyers and

are not to be relied upon in terms of colour

or necessarily to reveal imperfections in any


Many lots are of an age or nature which

precludes their being in mint condition and

some descriptions in the catalogue make

reference to damage or restoration. Such

information is given for guidance only and

the absence of such a reference does not

imply that a lot is free from defects not

either does any reference to particular

defects imply the absence of others.

It is the responsibility of prospective bidders

to inspect the property before bidding

to determine its condition, size and to

determine if it has been repaired or restored

and to request a condition report.

Buyers must satisfy themselves to all matters

referred above by inspection or

otherwise prior to the date of the auction.

They should carefully inspect items about

the condition of each lot, as this is not

necessarily stated in the catalogue.

A buyer’s premium will be added to the

successful bid price and is payable by the

purchaser based on a percentage of the

hammer price. It is important to remember

that there is 27,6% TTC (buyers premium

23% + TVA 20%) on top of the hammer


Subject to any reserve price, the highest

bidder shall be the buyer and a dispute shall

be settled by the auctioneer who may at any

time at his absolute discretion and

regardless of the fall of the hammer re-open

the bidding or withdraw the lot from sale.

Payment is in euro and is expected almost

immediately after bidding for an item. We

accept cash, pre-approved cheque or credit

card. Bank commissions and expenses have

to be paid by the buyer.

Every item becomes the entire responsibility

of the new owner for any damages as

soon as the auctioneer announces that an

item has been sold.

Once payment is received you will be issued

an invoice and a collection sheet. Items can

be collected after payment has been made.

Buyers cannot take possession of or remove

their purchases from the auction until the

total purchase price, including applicable

taxes or fees, has been paid in full.

All property must be removed from either

our premises by the purchaser at his

expense as soon as possible after the sale

otherwise an handling charge, until its

removal, will be payable to the Auction

House by the purchaser.

In the event a successful bidder fails to pay

any amounts due, within one month, the

Auction House reserves the right to cancel

the sale and re-sell the lot according to the

« Folle Enchère » French law (Law of July

10th 2000). The purchaser will be charged

for all the expenses caused by the re-auctioning

of the property. If the new auction

price does not reach the former one, the

failing purchaser have to pay the difference.

In any case, the purchaser will be liable for

any deficiency, any and all costs, handling

charges, late charges, expenses, legal fees,

expenses and incidental damages.


The Auction House will execute absentee

bids and accept telephone bids as a

courtesy to clients who are unable to attend

the auctions.

“Phone or Absentee Bid” forms are available

online or from the head office.

Therefore, we take no responsibility for any

errors or omissions in connection with this


For the Phone bid, when the auctioneer is

approaching the particular lot number, a

staff member will phone and you can instruct

them to bid on your behalf.

For the Absentee bid, you must nominate an

amount indicating the maximum price you

are prepared to pay for the item.

The auctioneer will bid on your behalf until

the price has reached your nominated


If bidding doesn’t reach this amount, you

win the item for the price at which the bidding
