11.

15. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP The transfer of ownership of a Lot in favor of the Buyer shall only take place after full pay- ment of the Hammer Price and abovementioned additional fees. However, upon auction sale (finalized by the Bailiff’s hammer blow), all risks relating to the Lot will be transferred to the successful purchaser in full and without reservation.
16. RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE BUYER 16.1This list not being restrictive, the successful purchaser shall be solely responsible for the loss, theft, partial or total destruction, or damage which may occur between the auction sale and the transfer of ownership after full payment of the Hammer Price and additional fees. 16.2 The successful purchaser shall be required to undertake at his expense, the with- drawal of the Lot of which he has become the owner, under section 14, within 5 working days of the auction sale.
16.3 Likewise, all charges for storage and insurance purposes that have been put forward by the Organizer for the time period between the auction sale and the payment of the hammer price and additional fees (transfer of ownership), shall remain the suc- cessful purchaser’s responsibility and shall be paid at the time of payment of the hammer price and additional charges.
16.4 In the case of uncollected Lots by the Buyer within the time period stipulated in Clause 16.2, the Organizer reserves the right to arrange for the removal of the Lots at the risk and expense of the Buyer, as well as the shipment under the same terms and conditions to Monaco, France or any other country specified by the Buyer. 17. CONDITION OF THE LOTS The Lots are sold in the same condition in which they were presented at the time of sale and no action shall be exercised against the Bailiff or the Organizer for flaws or hidden defects affecting the Lot that is to be sold, regardless of the significance of the flaw or defect.
It will be up to the potential bidders, prior to the Auction during the public exhi- bition of the Lots for sale, to check the condition, quality and authenticity of the Lots. 18. temporary importation 18.1 All lots marked with symbol + are in the free port and are subject to import tax, the buyer intending to import them within European Union should be aware that import tax will be due on hammer price and shall be paid to the organizer in addition to other fees (eg: 5.5% for antics and artworks in Monaco).
18.2 Any other lots are in free circulation in EU. 18.3 Buyer is responsible for checking and fulfilling all conditions of the transportation of the acquired lots to the final destination, including but not limited to checking the import status of the lots, and regulations for importation at destination. 19.EXPORT OF LOTS Due to Monaco being part of the French Customs Union, exports outside of Monaco undergo the same rules and regulations as those existing in France. Any Lot coming from the Customs Union or a beneficiary of temporary importation, if it remains in the Customs Union, may be removed upon presentation of proof of payment of the Pur- chase Price.
On the other hand, if the successful purchaser intends to export the Lot outside of the Customs Union, it will be up to him or her, and under his or her full and sole responsibility, to perform all the necessary procedures and formalities required by the law in force. Under no circumstances shall the Organizer or Bailiff be pursued for non-compliance or completion of the said formalities.
20. ORGANIZER’S MANDATE The Organizer carries the role of agent of his or her mandate, which gives him the autho- rization to sell one or more Lots. Under this capacity, neither the Organizer nor the Bailiff shall be part of the contract binding their mandate and Seller to the Purchaser: therefore neither the Organizer nor the Bailiff shall be held responsible if one of the parties fails to fulfil any of the obligations stipulated in the contract. 21. Jewellery and Watches clause 21.1.Coloured gemstones (such as rubies, sapphires and emeralds) may have been trea- ted to improve their look, through methods such as heating and oiling.
