3 BASIS OF SALE
3.1 All vehicles are sold ‘as they lie’ with all faults and imperfections and errors of description. The absence of any reference to the condition of a Vehicle does not imply that the Vehicle is free from faults, imperfections and/or restoration. Illustrations in catalogues or brochures are for identification purposes only. JOHN PYE & SONS will not be held responsible for any damage or defect that has not been notified to the Buyer.
3.2 Buyers must satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each Vehicle and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the Vehicle accords with its description. Prospective Buyers bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by JOHN PYE & SONS as to genuineness, origin, date, age, Vehicle starting capability or condition involve matters of opinion. Neither JOHN PYE & SONS nor its employees or agents nor the Seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions. Neither JOHN PYE & SONS, its servants or agents will be responsible for errors of description or for the genuineness or authenticity of any Vehicle.
3.3 No warranty (written or oral) or other term (whether express or implied and whether implied by statute, common law, custom or otherwise) as to the age, description, suitability, fitness for purpose, satisfactory quality or roadworthiness of the Vehicle is given by JOHN PYE & SONS, its servants or agents or by any Seller to any Buyer in respect of any lot, and any express or implied conditions or warranties are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. For the avoidance of doubt, the Vehicles are not sold by sample.
3.4 Any reference to the age of a Vehicle in the lot description relating to it is intended to be a reference to the year of first registration of the Vehicle in the United Kingdom.
3.5 Except in respect of the Important Notes:
3.5.1 no oral or written representation made prior to or at the time of sale of any Vehicle shall be deemed to be a representation of fact.
3.5.2 No oral or written representations shall be deemed to be incorporated into the contract for sale nor to have induced any potential buyer to bid.
3.5.3 JOHN PYE & SONS undertakes no obligation or duty (whether in contract or tort or otherwise) in respect of the accuracy or completeness of any statement or representation made by JOHN PYE & SONS or on JOHN PYE & SONS’ behalf which is in any way descriptive of any Vehicle.
3.6 Buyers buy Vehicles where they lie and are wholly responsible to bring any necessary labour and equipment in order to remove their Vehicle(s) and shall comply with any directions which may be given by JOHN PYE & SONS as to the safe removal of the Vehicle(s) and in giving due care to other lots on the Premises and the Premises itself.

3.7.1 The Seller’s Vehicle is accepted by JOHN PYE & SONS to be considered for auction; and
3.7.2 The Buyer completes Registration.
3.8 JOHN PYE & SONS has the right to revise and amend these Terms from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting its business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in various systems’ capabilities. Buyers and Sellers will be subject to the policies and terms in force at the time these Terms become binding in accordance with clause 3.7 above.
3.9 The Buyer acknowledges that a sale by auction Is Not a consumer sale for the purposes of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended by the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 and as replaced by the Consumer Rights Act 2015) and the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 / 1999 Regulations and the Buyer shall not seek to rely upon any conditions or warranties implied thereby or by any other legislation. All Vehicles are strictly Sold as Seen with no grading or guarantees and can be second-hand, salvage, repossessed and/or seized.
3.10 Any estimate of likely value provided in respect of a Vehicle is solely an expression of JOHN PYE & SONS’ opinion (made on behalf of the Seller); such estimates are not an estimate of the actual value of a Vehicle. Such estimates do not take into account any
VAT or Buyer Premium payable. Estimates should not be relied on as an indication of the likely selling price or actual value of a Vehicle.
3.11 Private treaty sales made under these Terms are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation.
4 RISK AND TITLE
4.1 Title to the Vehicle shall not pass to the Buyer until the Hammer Price, the Buyer’s
Premium and any applicable VAT have been received in full and in cleared funds by JOHN PYE & SONS. Until title passes, and subject to clause 7.1 below, JOHN PYE & SONS reserves the right to dispose of the Vehicle in accordance with clause 2.8 above.
4.2 From the delivery of a Vehicle to the Premises until the Hammer Price in respect of a Vehicle is reached or the Vehicle is removed by the Seller (including any time during which the Vehicle is being tested or demonstrated on the auction premises, or elsewhere) the Vehicle is at the risk of the Seller, and neither JOHN PYE & SONS nor its servants or agents will be responsible for any loss or damage whether caused by negligence or otherwise.
