CONDITIONS OF SALE BY AUCTION
- Subject to the absolute discretion of the Auctioneer, the highest bidder to be the purchaser and if a dispute arises between two or more bidders the dispute may be settled by the Auctioneer, or the lot so in dispute may be immediately put up and resold.
- The highest bidder shall be the buyer at the “HAMMER PRICE”. Any disputes will be settled at the auctioneers discretion
- The seller shall be entitled to place a reserve on lots at the discretion of the auctioneer. The auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the seller for any lot on which a reserve has been placed.

- Purchasers wishing to use Credit Cards, Business Debit Cards, and International Credit or Debit Cards may do so, however it should be noted that such payment will be subject to an administrative fee of 3% on invoice total.
- Catalogue descriptions are intended to provide a general description of lots to help the prospective buyer. They do not always include details of damage or condition of lots. Buyers are advised to view each piece personally before the sale. Buyers are expected to form their own opinions as to the origins, date, condition, provenance or attributions of lots catalogued. The Auctioneer, R. J. KEIGHERY, is not responsible for the correct description, genuineness of, or any default of defect in any lot, and make no warranty whatever.
- Ample opportunity is given for inspection of lots. Each purchaser, by making a bid on a lot, acknowledges that they are fully satisfied before bidding, by physical inspection or otherwise, as to the description, condition, and other information relating to the lot. Despite all efforts being made to ensure accurate descriptions and estimates, lots are assumed to be viewed and inspected. As such, all lots are sold with all faults and errors of description, at the buyers’ risk. While the Auctioneer will endeavour to make certain observations on the conditions of items, the buyer is reminded that the condition report is based on opinion and should not be taken as a statement of fact.
- The property of a lot shall not pass to the buyer until the purchase price has been paid for in full, but the lot will be at the buyers risk in all respects from the fall of the hammer.
- Live bidding is available through the-saleroom.com. Purchases made through The Saleroom are subject to 3% fee on top of invoice total.
All goods delivered to City Auction Rooms will be deemed to be delivered for sale by Auction unless other wise stated and will be sold at City Auction Rooms discretion, subject to all sales conditions.

These Terms & Conditions for Buying Goods Online apply only to goods purchased online using this website.
Definitions & general considerations

Ordering process and contract formation
By completing and submitting an electronic order, you are making an offer to purchase goods that, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract.
Certain steps must be followed for a binding contract to be formed between us, which are described below. After you have placed your order:
– we will send you, as soon as possible, an email to acknowledge your order. It will confirm which goods you have ordered. This email is not an order acceptance from us and at this stage no contract is formed between us;
– when we dispatch your goods from the warehouse, we will send you a confirmation email (“Dispatch Email”). This email constitutes a formal acceptance of your order by us. This also means that a binding contract between us is formed and you and we are obliged to fulfill our obligations under that binding contract.
– Important note regarding Special Orders: The above order process does not apply in relation to Special Orders. We will acknowledge your order as described in step 1 above, however the following order process shall apply:
– We will send you an order confirmation by email on or shortly before the date on which payment for your Special Order will be processed. This email constitutes a formal acceptance of your order by us. This also means that a contract between us is agreed and we are obliged to fulfill our obligations under this contract.
– Once your order is ready for dispatch from our warehouse, we will send you a dispatch confirmation email.
Payment is processed at the time of order.
Please note: orders will only be dispatched once we have authorisation from your payment card issuer. We will aim to inform you as soon as possible if there is an issue with the payment authorisation process or with any validation checks for your order. We will not accept your order if payment is not authorised. Where there are issues with the authorisation process or validation checks, your delivery may be delayed as a result.
We do not have to accept your order, and in particular, we will not accept your order if:
– we do not have the goods in stock
– your payment is not authorized
– there is an error on our Website regarding the price or other details of the goods
– you have cancelled your order in accordance with the instructions below.
We will be in contact with you as soon as practicable (by email or by phone) in each of the above circumstances to discuss your options.
We reserve the right to refuse any order.
Cancelling an order before dispatch
If you change your mind after placing an order, you can cancel it at any time before we have sent our Dispatch Email to you. Please see the Contact Us page for our contact details. To cancel your order, you will need to give us your name, address, and order number.
If you cancel part of an order the postage and packaging charge is recalculated on the value of the goods you keep.
We constantly endeavour to ensure that product appearing on our website is currently available. There may, however, be instances where an item, or items, appear on our website but are unavailable. If the goods you have ordered are unavailable, you will receive an email notification or call from us to confirm this.
Some goods indicated on our website as such, are not available to buy online, but are available to buy at RJ Keighery Antiques, William Street, Waterford

These Terms & Conditions for Buying Goods Online are governed by the law of the Republic of Ireland and you and we agree to use the Irish courts if there is any dispute between us.
