All UK auctioneers charge a premium in addition to the hammer price.
Halls’ Buyer’s Premium is 20% plus VAT for the first £500,000 and 12% above £500,000 per lot.
You can ask for further details and extra images about any lots in our sales and this is especially important if you cannot view the lot in person. We don’t detail condition in our catalogue descriptions and so recommend asking for a condition report and additional images. Our reports provide a general guide to the condition of a lot but are not a forensic examination and so a physical inspection by you or an appointed agent is ideal.
To request a condition report go to the lot of interest and click on the 'Request a condition report' button or email email@example.com. Condition reports are always given in writing.
