Guide Prices and Reserve
The guide prices shown within the catalogue/particulars of sale are merely an estimate of the price which the auctioneers consider that the lot might be sold for. These guide prices should not be treated as a valuation or the reserve price.
Prior to the auction prospective purchasers should contact the auctioneers or check their website www.humberts.com to check whether there have been any alterations made to the guide prices for the lot (lots in which you are interested).
Each lot will be sold subject to a reserve price, being the sellers minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve will not be disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. The vendor and/or their agents reserve the right to bid up to the reserve price.
Prospective purchasers are reminded that no questions will be invited once the sale commences. The auctioneers will be delighted to answer any questions prior to the sale and they will be available for half an hour prior to the commencement of the sale to answer any last minute queries.

Humberts and their clients give notice that:-
1. They have no authority to make or give any representations or warranties in relation to any particular lot. These particulars do not form part of any offer or contract and must not be relied upon as statements or representation of fact.
2. Any areas, measurements or distances given are approximate.
3. The text, photographs and plans are for guidance purposes only and are not necessarily comprehensive.
4. It should not be assumed that all lots have the necessary planning, building regulation or other consents and Humberts have not tested any services, equipment or facilities. Purchasers must satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise
5. The Guide Price is an indication of the sellers current minimum acceptable price at auction. It is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer prior to marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of the interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. A guide price is different from a reserve price (see below). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. The Reserve Price is the sellers minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price cannot be disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer
