Terms & Conditions

Live Auction Rules
All sales are final. No purchase can be returned, refunded or exchanged. All bidders must be registered to bid and provide a valid credit card number. All artworks are sold as exhibited, unless otherwise stated. Successful bidders should be prepared to pay for their purchases in cash, by Visa, American Express or Mastercard, or by personal cheque payable to C Magazine before leaving the venue. No HST or auction commission is applicable.

Lots are listed in the order by which they will be auctioned. Bidding opens at approximately 50% to 55% of the estimated value. Lots may be subject to a reserve, which is a confidential price below which the lot will not be sold. All catalogue descriptions are subject to any variation announced by the auctioneer in the auction room prior to the time of sale. C Magazine reserves the right to withdraw any work of art at any time before the actual sale. The purchaser will be the highest bidder for the lot accepted by the auctioneer and the purchaser immediately assumes full risk and responsibility for the lot. The auctioneer has the final authority to determine the successful bidder or to settle any bid dispute. When you register for your bid paddle, you are agreeing to these rules.

Conditions of Sale
Each lot lists an estimated market value obtained from sources C Magazine believes to be reliable. This estimated value is intended as a guide to assist attendees in their bidding. No representation or warranty as to the resale value of a work being auctioned is made or implied.

Tax Receipts for Art Purchases
For artworks that sell for more than 100% of the estimated value, the purchaser will be issued a charitable tax receipt for the difference between the estimate and selling price.
