Conditions of Business

Cannon & Cannon cc (Registration No. 1990/017495/23) (“Cannon’s”) always strives to provide our clients with the best possible service. As such, please take note of the Consumer Protection Act and the following Terms and Conditions.

Cannon’s carries on business as fourth generation Auctioneers and Appraisers of Antiques, Collectables, Jewellery, Fine Art, Militaria, Carpets, General Household Contents, and all the finer things in life. As Auctioneers, Cannon’s would usually act as agent of the Seller of a Lot, or in instances where Cannon’s owns, or has a financial interest in any Lot as principal.

Cannon’s reserves the right to amend or delete any part of Cannon’s Terms and Conditions at any time and without prior notice. It is the responsibility of the Bidders, Buyers and Sellers to review our Conditions of Business on a frequent basis and remain up-to-date in respect of any changes.

Each Bid will be an offer to purchase and the party making the highest Bid will be the Purchaser. The sale will be complete on acceptance of the Bid by the Auctioneer at a reserved or controlled price, as indicated by the fall of the hammer or otherwise. The advance in the Bidding will be regulated by the Auctioneer who will have the sole right of deciding when to drop the hammer, and decide who was the final Bidder. In the event of a dispute between two or more Bidders, or between the Auctioneer and one or more Bidders, the Lot in question may be put up and resold at the discretion of the Auctioneer. The Buyer shall be bound by all announcements made by the Auctioneer at the commencement of, and during the Auction, whether present or not at the time of making. The Auctioneer may, at their discretion and without assigning any reason therefore, refuse a Bid or withdraw an article either before or after it has been put up for Auction.

As a registered Online Bidder, it has been recorded that you have agreed to our Terms and Conditions. Online Bidding increments are set for our Pre-Bidding prior to our sale, once the Online Auction has commenced, the Auctioneer may, at their discretion, change the increment to suit the Bidding on that particular Lot. Pre-Bids may be placed in confidence by prospective Buyers at the asking price, or a higher amount than the asking price. Bids which are placed on a particular Lot that automatically read as “Outbid”, means there is a Pre-Bid higher than the amount placed, and the current Bid will be an increment higher than the placed Bid. However, in an instance where your Bid is placed on a Lot, and the current Bid reads the same amount that you have just placed, but reads “Outbid”, this means your Bid is the same amount as the Pre-Bid, which works on a first come first served basis, unless you place another Bid on the Lot, you will lose that particular Lot. We suggest that Online Bidders who are using our “Cannons Auctioneers” APP (available for free on Google Play Store or IOS App Store) allow our app to send notifications.
