APPLICABLE LAW AND JURISDICTION
FOR ONLINE AUCTIONS
The House "Tsantilis Art" (hereinafter referred to as "Auctioneer") acts as an agent - representative of the seller (depositor of the lottery - object to be auctioned).
The prices listed in the auction list are a product of the Auctioneer's personal assessment and are not a commitment to the final result.
Bidders can take part in the distance auction through the House's website, according to the procedure specifically described below.
The participation in the auction of a candidate bidder, presupposes its registration in the website of the Auctioneer, so that there are his exact details (name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail).
Initial bidding price is the first price of the appraisal price listed in the list. Continuing the process, the Auctioneer determines the successive bids on the auctioned lotteries at a rate of approximately 10% - 20% above the immediately preceding bid. In case of any dispute regarding the procedure or the award of a lottery, the Auctioneer, as the director of the auction, judges himself for this dispute, for the final award or the re-auction of the lottery.
The Auctioneer is entitled at his discretion to refuse the entry or participation of anyone in the auction. The Auctioneer is entitled to withdraw at any time and for any reason any lottery ticket from the auction without being obliged to announce the reasons for this withdrawal.
The Auctioneer considers in good faith that the seller is the owner of the project or object being auctioned. For each auctioned work or object, the seller has previously guaranteed to the Auctioneer that it is free from any burden in favor of a third party as well as a legal or real defect, claiming and claiming a third party on it.
Each auctioned lottery is awarded to the last bidder, who has since become its Buyer.
Each lottery ticket is available in the condition it is in during the auction ("as is"). The description and the statements that appear in the auction list regarding the origin, dating, authenticity and valuation of the lottery are a simple assessment of the Auctioneer and do not bind him or create any responsibility towards the bidder or third parties. The Auctioneer is not responsible for possible actual defects or damage to the lottery. For this reason, each successful bidder must first examine the lottery for which they are interested in bidding, in person or through an expert during the period during which the lotteries to be auctioned are exposed to the public before the auction. The bidder's participation in the auction automatically means that the lottery has been previously examined by him or his representative and that it is to his absolute liking.
With the awarding of the auctioned lottery, the Buyer (last bidder) owes the Auctioneer the following amounts of money:
(a) The award price which is the price of the sale of the lottery.
(b) Remuneration, which amounts to 18% of the award price (hereinafter referred to as "the Auctioneer's Remuneration").
(c) VAT 24% on the amount of the Auctioneer's Fee.
(d) Upon award of a work of art, an amount corresponding to the "right to watch" of the artist who is alive or has died within the last seventy (70) years (Article 5 of Law 2121/1993 on intellectual property, as applicable). This amount is 5% for the part of the award price up to 50,000 euros, at a rate of 3% for the part of the award price from 50,000.01 to 200,000 euros, at a rate of 1% for the part of the award price from 200,000.01 up to 350,000 euros, at a rate of 0.5% for the part of the award price from 350,000.01 to 500,000 euros and at a rate of 0.25% for the part of the award price that exceeds 500,000 euros. In any case, the total amount of the "monitoring fee" may not exceed the amount of 12,500 euros. The finally payable amount of the "monitoring fee" is charged with VAT 24% which is also borne by the Buyer.
After the full and complete repayment of the above mentioned total debt by the Buyer, the awarded lottery ticket is available for delivery to the Buyer, from the next working day of the auction, from the offices of the Auctioneer (or possibly from another party which will indicate to the Buyer) and for the next ten (10) working days from the date of the auction. Transfer of ownership of the lottery occurs only with its payment and with its simultaneous delivery to the Buyer.
In case of refusal or inability of the Buyer to come to receive and pay the work within the above deadline, the Auctioneer has the following equivalent rights: either (a) to claim the total debt of the Buyer, or (b) after appointing to the Buyer a new five-day deadline for repayment of the total debt, to withdraw from the sale, in case of non-expiration of the new above-mentioned deadline. In such a case, the Auctioneer will be able to sell the lottery to a third party in any way freely, even out of auction. In the latter case, if the sale price to be made is less than the total debt of the Buyer that will have been formed by the previous bidding, the Auctioneer will be able to claim from the Buyer the difference between this reduced fee achieved by the free sale of the lottery and the Reward, without this excluding the claim of any further compensation.
The Auctioneer applies the internationally recognized principles of science and art when examining the authenticity of lotteries before bidding. If, nevertheless, a lottery ticket is subsequently proved to be non-genuine with solid evidence based on internationally accepted authentication methods, the Buyer has the right to return the lottery ticket. As for the amount of the award price of the lottery ticket returned for the above reason, the Auctioneer will return it to the Buyer without interest, but only if he has not already paid it to the seller. However, if the Auctioneer has already paid the seller, then the Buyer will be entitled to claim the award price exclusively from the seller (who has already received the price, according to the above), and the Auctioneer will be obliged to return interest-free. the Fee that he will have received in the meantime from the Buyer, as well as to give to the Buyer the details of the seller's name and residential address. Cumulative conditions for the return of the lottery ticket are: (a) to request its return in writing and with justification; (d) has not in the meantime been transferred by the Buyer to a third party nor has any burden been placed on it and (e) there has been no reference to the auction list in expert disagreements as to its authenticity. It is specifically noted that if the description of the auctioned lottery in the auction list mentions the phrase that the work "is attributed to one or the other artist" or comes from "the workshop of one or the other artist", this is not an element of non-authenticity of the work and does not give rise to a right of return.
Participation in the auction automatically means the unconditional acceptance of these Terms in their entirety by the bidders participating in it.
