Immediately upon AUCTIONEER announcing sold or knock down by AUCTIONEER, BIDDER shall be the purchaser of the LOTS and thereafter the LOTS shall become the sole and absolute responsibility of BIDDER.

BIDDER is advised to pre-arrange insurance coverage for BIDDER’S purchases as there will be no refunds for missing, lost, damaged or stolen LOTS unless and only at AUCTIONEER’S sole discretion.

BIDDER HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT AUCTIONEER SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES.
Title to and possession of LOTS shall not pass to BIDDER until AUCTIONEER has received payment in full for all LOTS purchased by BIDDER. All LOTS and the entirety of BIDDER’S invoice require payment in full prior to AUCTIONEER releasing any LOTS. If all LOTS are not paid in full by BIDDER for any reason, and BIDDER has provided AUCTIONEER any monetary consideration, AUCTIONEER will retain all LOTS and any and all monetary consideration paid by BIDDER to mitigate AUCTIONEER’S financial damages caused by BIDDER. If after the subsequent mitigation amounts (if any) received by AUCTIONEER exceed the amount of BIDDER’S invoice and costs incurred by AUCTIONEER fees, AUCTIONEER will refund such amounts to BIDDER once determined by AUCTIONEER in AUCTIONEER’S sole discretion. BIDDER hereby agrees LOTS purchased at this auction will be invoiced in totality, although in some cases separately priced on the invoice, the total amount due AUCTIONEER of BIDDER’S invoice is deemed a single AGREEMENT in the event of a legal dispute.
If for any reason BIDDER fails to pay the full amount of BIDDER’S invoice within the first banking day (24 hours after the auction), and/or fails to remove all of BIDDER’S LOTS on or before the date posted on BIDDER’S invoice, and/or fails to comply with any other terms and conditions of this AGREEMENT, all LOTS on the BIDDER’S invoice will be considered abandoned and AUCTIONEER in AUCTIONEER’S sole discretion and without further notice to BIDDER may remove, dispose of, scrap, resell at public or private sale, any or all LOTS . BIDDER agrees to pay AUCTIONEER, as applicable, any monetary mitigation deficiency and costs as a result thereof, including all removal, rent, lay and hold over fees, and any other fees or costs associated with AUCTIONEER’S loss. BIDDER understands and acknowledges that there is sufficient consideration by both parties to perform, and that if payment in full is not made within the specific time outlined in this AGREEMENT, BIDDER agrees to be bound by a “consent judgment” and is in violation and in default of this AGREEMENT. By signing below BIDDER consents to the terms of a judgment entered against BIDDER and hereby waives BIDDER’S rights to any court proceeding. In addition, relating to such disposition of LOTS, together with all charges, including attorney’s fees, arbitration fees, interest and any and all other expenses in connection with such disposition, plus a $500.00 per diem administrative fee per LOTS until such LOTS are removed. Bidder agrees that AUCTIONEER may retain all deposits previously received and apply all such deposits to any deficiency without further notice to BIDDER. BIDDER agrees that “TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE” in regards to AGREEMENT regarding payment of BIDDER’S invoice and removal of BIDDER’S LOTS. For purposes of clarity, BIDDER further acknowledges and agrees AUCTIONEER will be monetarily damaged for the subsequent disposal of any LOTS for any reason and that BIDDER is responsible to pay AUCTIONEER for all of the above costs, damages, fees, any other such monetary mitigation deficits, damages known and unknown, and any and all other monies expended by AUCTIONEER to collect and enforce this AGREEMENT. Any and all monetary damages caused by BIDDER’S actions or lack of action regarding LOTS AUCTIONEER become the debt of BIDDER.
