Only when payment (cleared funds) and collection of the purchased item(s) is the purchase contract  deemed to be completed. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure both payment & collection are arranged in a period of time following the sale date of no more than 28 days. Should the buyer be unable to conform, they must obtain approval prior to purchase. John Nicholsons reserve the right to charge for storage and associated costs for non payment/collection that exceed the 28 day allowance. Storage charges will be levied at a rate of £5.00 + VAT per lot per day. All amounts accrued up to the date of collection must be paid before goods are released.  

If the buyer has failed to collect within a period of 2 months (from sale date) John Nicholsons’ reserve the right to re-enter the uncollected items through auction to recover the cost of storage and associated costs. At this time the buyer relinquishes all claims to ownership and any right to financial compensation.

On  the rare occasion of purchased goods being collected without cleared payment ‘John Nicholson Fine Art Auctioneer & Valuer’ retain full title to the goods on behalf of the vendor. The purchaser will not have title until the full debt has been honoured with cleared funds.
