The winning bidder in the silent auction is the person whose bid is the highest when the silent auction closes.

8. No tax relief is applicable to any auction item. Winners are unable to pay for their lots via CAF America. 

9. Legal ownership in the lot will not pass to the winning bidder until full payment has been completed. 

10. Once a lot has been fully paid for, the winning bidder will be required to make arrangements to have the lot couriered post event (at Lord’s Taverners convenience) at a charge to the winning bidder. 

11. Any physical items not collected or delivered to a winning bidder within 6 months of the event date will be deemed as unwanted and will no longer be available. In this case, winning bidders will not be able to reclaim any monies in respect of the relevant lot and Lord’s Taverners may deal with that lot in any way if so chooses (which may include re-auctioning the lot). 

12. It is the responsibility of all bidders to ensure that, should they be the winning bidder, they comply with all applicable laws in carrying out, and have the necessary permissions or authorisations to carry out the activity specified in the bid, including (by way of example, not limitation) appropriate identification, travel visas and so on.

The bidder acknowledges that any statements (oral or written) made by Lord’s Taverners about any of the lots are opinions only and the bidder shall not rely on any such statements. 

15. Lord’s Taverners may change or withdraw any or all lots up until the time such lot is deemed to be sold.
