Castle Auctions Terms and Conditions.

Conditions of Sale

Prospective buyers are advised that all Lots are sold as seen, without warranty or guarantee and they should therefore thoroughly check the condition of Lots before bidding.

Descriptions

Whilst every effort has been made to produce auction catalogues with accurate descriptions, no guarantee can be given and a purchaser must satisfy him / herself as to the authenticity of the description.

The Auctioneer neither has nor professes any expert or other knowledge of any Lot sold and each Lot is sold as seen with all faults and errors or mistakes of description and all written or oral representations as to description, quality or fitness are excluded. The buyer shall be deemed to have inspected the Lot he buys and if he buys without so doing he shall do so at his own risk.
