Unless written instructions are lodged with the Auctioneers lots will be sold without reserve.
Vendors will be charged a standard commission of 6% + VAT, with a minimum commission of £20 +VAT on sold lots. In addition a 0.75% plus VAT sales levy fund will be deducted i.e. 90p in every £100.00. Proceeds of the sale less deductions are normally forwarded to vendors 14 days after the sale.
No lot will be allowed to leave the Sale Site until a Pass has been obtained from the Sales Office. In the event of lot labels missing from lots these animals will not be allowed to leave until identified to the satisfaction of the Auctioneers Representative.
All horses and ponies are sold subject to veterinary examination unless sold for £400 or less.
Veterinary Surgeons appointed by the Auctioneers are available through the Auctioneers Office to examine horses on behalf of Vendors and Purchasers. In the case of Purchasers, they are prepared to examine horses on their behalf as to whether they are correct under the Conditions of Sale. The Veterinary Surgeon’s decision that a horse be returnable is binding on both parties. All horses should be vetted for eyes, heart, action, age and ascertainment of catalogue descriptions for a fee of £65.00 including VAT.
Vendors must check the veterinary board displayed in the Sales Office to see if their horse/pony must be presented for veterinary examination. Vendors should not leave the Sale Site without first checking the vetting board.
It is emphasised that the facilities are not available to undertake a full veterinary examination but part veterinary examination should take place. Only Lots that are examined by the panel on the sale day have an extended period of 2 working days (Including Saturdays) to enable complete veterinary examination.
If the purchaser fails to take advantage of the sale day veterinary examination then they cannot thereafter make complaint of matters, which would have been covered by a sale day veterinary examination.
The Horse Passports (England) Regulations 2004 state that ‘after 28th February 2005 no person shall sell a horse without a passport’. It is the vendors responsibility to produce a valid and correct passport for their entry, which will be surrendered to the auctioneers on arrival at the sale ground. This passport will be given to the new purchaser or returned to the vendor if not sold.
There is no requirement for vaccinations to be up to date at this sale.
