5.2 Default by Buyer
5.2.1. Failure to timely make payment of any amounts due to Prop Store and/or the Seller shall constitute an event of Default by the Buyer. In the event of Default for nonpayment, Prop Store may charge interest on the unpaid amount at the rate of five percent (5%) a year above the base lending rate of Bank of America from time to time. The base lending rate shall be the average lending rate of Bank of America for the six (6) months preceding the date of default. If such interest rate exceeds the legal rate permitted by law, then the maximum legal rate permitted by law shall apply. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount. The Buyer must pay Prop Store interest together with any overdue amount.
5.2.2. If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with (to a material extent), the Buyer will be in Default and in addition to any and all other remedies available to Prop Store by law, including, without limitation, the right to hold the Buyer liable for the total Purchase Price, including all fees, charges and expenses more fully set forth herein, Prop Store, at its option and to the extent permitted by law, may (i) cancel the sale of that, or any other items sold to the defaulting Buyer, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the Buyer, (ii) resell the purchased item, or (iii) effect any combination thereof. In any case, the Buyer shall be liable for any deficiency, any and all costs, handling charges, late charges, expenses of both sales, legal fees and expenses, collection fees and incidental damages.
5.2.3. Prop Store may, in its sole discretion, apply any proceeds of sale then due or thereafter becoming due to the Buyer from Prop Store or any affiliated company, or any payment made by the Buyer to Prop Store or any affiliated company, whether or not intended to reduce the Buyer’s obligations with respect to the unpaid item or items, to the deficiency and any other amounts due to Prop Store or any affiliated companies. In addition, a defaulting Buyer will be deemed to have granted and assigned to Prop Store and its affiliated companies a continuing security interest of first priority in any property or money owing to such Buyer in our possession or in the possession of any of its affiliated companies, and Prop Store may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to Prop Store or to any affiliated company. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until Prop Store has collected good funds.
5.2.4. Prop Store may further reject at any future auction any bids made by or on behalf of the Buyer or require a deposit from the Buyer before accepting any further bids.
5.2.5. Prop Store may take such other action as Prop Store deems necessary or appropriate.

5.2.7. Prop Store shall be entitled to retain the Lots sold until all amounts due have been received in full in good cleared funds or until the Buyer has performed any other outstanding obligations as Prop Store shall reasonably require.
5.3 Shipping and Storage
5.3.1. The Buyer is solely responsible for all shipping, handling, and delivery costs. Prop Store can help you arrange packing and shipping through FedEx for smaller items or PackAir AirFreight, Inc. for larger items, or you can use your own licensed carrier, approved by Prop Store. Please contact Prop Store at +1 818-727-7829 or [email protected] for further details. Prop Store does not warranty the Lots against, and shall have no liability for, any damage that any Lot may incur or suffer during the shipping or delivery process.
5.3.2. If within fourteen (14) calendar days after the close of Auction, the Buyer has not made arrangements for and paid the shipping cost of the Lots purchased, or has otherwise failed to collect the Lots, a storage fee of three percent (3%) of the Hammer Price per month shall be charged to the Buyer. If the Buyer has failed to pay the Purchase Price and the cost of shipping and handling within fourteen (14) calendar days after the close of Auction, Prop Store, at its option, may cancel the sale.
5.3.3. It is the Buyer’s sole obligation and responsibility to be aware of, to comply with, and to pay for all relevant import duties, taxes, VAT, customs and other fees charged in the area of delivery. Prop Store will ship all packages with the full value of the Lot declared. The Buyer understands and agrees that Prop Store shall have no obligation or responsibility for any import duties, taxes, VAT, customs, shipping or other charges for the Lots shipped. Failure by the Buyer to pay all necessary amounts may result in the relevant authorities returning the Lot to Prop Store and in those circumstances the Buyer will be charged and will pay storage cost and Prop Store’s additional reasonable costs and expenses.
5.3.4. It is further the Buyer’s sole obligation and responsibility to ensure that any Lot purchased from Prop Store enters the shipping location lawfully, that all duties and taxes have been paid and that all required export procedures, regulations, and laws were properly complied with. The Buyer understands and agrees that Prop Store shall have no obligation or responsibility for complying with any export procedures, regulations, or laws applicable to the Lot.
5.3.5. Unless otherwise agreed by Prop Store in writing, the fact that the Buyer wishes to apply for an export license does not affect or postpone the Buyer’s obligation to make payment in accordance with Prop Store’s payment terms nor Prop Store’s right to charge interest or storage charges on late payment. Prop Store shall not be obligated to rescind or cancel a sale or to refund any monies paid by the Buyer to Prop Store as a result of or related to the Buyer’s failure or inability to obtain an export license.
5.3.6. In the event that the Bidder refuses to accept a shipment due to import duty charges, and the item is returned to Prop Store, the Bidder shall be subject to a charge of twenty percent (20%) of the Purchase Price of the returned item, plus all shipping charges incurred in the shipment and return shipment of the Property. The balance of the price paid for the Property will be issued only as a store credit to be used against future purchases. Store credits are proprietary to each office of Prop Store and may not be transferred to another office.
5.3.7. Should the Buyer make own arrangements with third parties for shipping, handling, or delivery of any Lots, Prop Store shall not have and accepts no liability or responsibility for the acts or omissions of any such third parties. Similarly, where Prop Store suggests other handlers, packers or carriers, its suggestions are made on the basis of its general experience of such parties in the past. Although Prop Store shall use reasonable efforts to take care when selecting third parties for shipping and delivery, the Buyer understands and agrees that Prop Store is not responsible to any person to whom it has made a recommendation for the acts or omissions of the third party concerned.
5.4 Prop Store's Liability
5.4.1. Except where expressly stated to the contrary above, under no circumstance will Prop Store incur liability to any Bidder or Buyer in excess of the purchase price actually paid.
5.4.2. Prop Store will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of its obligations under these Conditions that is caused by an event outside its control, that being any act or event beyond Prop Store’s reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lockouts or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks. Prop Store’s obligations shall be suspended and time for performance extended until such time as the event outside its control is over, following which a new collection or shipping date can be agreed.
6. Terms of Guarantee.
6.1 Prop Store guarantees the following: (i) that each lot of Property is what is stated in the title block of that lot of Property in the Auction catalog, subject to any revisions (which may be given in writing or online before or during the Auction at which the lot of Property is offered for sale); and (ii) that each lot of Property is genuine and authentic, and not a counterfeit or reproduction. Certain lots of Property have been assigned a “grade” by an independent, third-party. Prop Store does not guarantee the accuracy, veracity, or quality of the grades assigned to the Property, and shall have no liability or responsibility therefor. Prior to the Auction, it is the Bidder’s sole responsibility and obligation to inspect each lot of Property on which the Bidder wishes to place any bid to determine its condition.
6.2 If a Bidder demonstrates, to Prop Store’s reasonable satisfaction, that the guarantees as set forth in paragraph 6.1 made by Prop Store are materially incorrect, the sale will be rescinded if the Property is returned to Prop Store in the same condition in which it was at the time of sale. In order to satisfy Prop Store that the guarantees are materially incorrect, Prop Store reserves the right to require the Bidder to obtain, at the Bidder’s expense, the opinions of two experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Prop Store and the Bidder.
6.3 In the event a sale is rescinded in accordance with clause 6.2 herein, Prop Store shall repay to the Buyer the Purchase Price. Repayment of the Purchase Price shall be the Buyer’s sole remedy for an incorrect guarantee, to the exclusion of all other remedies to the extent permissible at law. It is specifically understood that this will be considered the Buyer’s sole remedy under this clause 6. The Buyer expressly agrees that Prop Store shall not be liable in whole or in part, for, and the Buyer shall not be entitled to recover, any special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages including loss of profits or value of investment or opportunity cost.
6.4 Bidders are aware that description revisions may occur on some Lots, and should inquire before the Auction whether any description revisions have occurred on a given Lot and/or examine a Lot before bidding on it. Prop Store will make all commercially reasonable efforts to make description revisions readily available during the Auction. While Prop Store uses commercially reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information in this auction, Prop Store makes no warranties or representations as to its accuracy. Prop Store assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions in the content of the Auction. Any reference images appearing within Prop Store’s auction listings are solely for reference purposes and are not intended or deemed to be a representation or warranty of the item depicted within the image. Except as expressly provided in these Conditions, Prop Store shall have no liability to the Bidder in respect of any Property and all and any implied warranties and conditions are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
