Buying at Rogers Jones Co

Taking part in our auctions has never been simpler. All auctions are conducted live on our own live bidding platform which is free to use.

We want to make buying at auction as transparent, accessible and straightforward as possible, no matter the price point of the lot you are after.

Buyer’s Fees

There is a commission employed by Fine Art auctioneers called Buyers Premium this is calculated as a commission of the hammer price. Our Buyers Premium rates vary according to the type of auction. You will find this information when you log in to bid live on the Rogers Jones Live platform and when completing commission bid or telephone bidding forms.

Droite de Suite

There is a 4% levee charged to the buyer on original works of art by EEA and UK artists who are living or have died in the last 70 years of the auction, and which sell for an auction hammer price over 1000 Euros (equivalent to GBP). Droit de suite - Wikipedia

Finding Items

All our auctions are fully illustrated on our website and at www.the-saleroom.com

We produce a joint fully illustrated catalogue for The Welsh Sale & The Selections & Collections Auction which is available three times per year – Spring, Summer & Autumn prior to the three auctions.

For our Vintage & Antiques auctions we produce an in-house list of lots available at the saleroom for viewing at a small cost which is donated to our nominated annual charity.

All our auctions are open for public viewing at both North & South salerooms by appointment. Viewing times vary for each sale, so please check sale listings or the online catalogue for each sale.

Bidding

There are various ways to bid:

Bidding at the saleroom

Presently there is no bidding in person

Online ‘live’ bidding

You can bid anywhere in the world providing you have internet connection. This is done through here on our website and is free of charge.

Commission Bidding

To leave absentee bids, please use our website, clicking on the lot(s) or if you have visited the saleroom to see in person the lot(s) then a form can be completed and returned at the auction office.

Commission bids must be submitted by close of business on the day before the sale. If identical bids are submitted, the person who bids first will take precedence.

Telephone Bidding

You can take part in the sale by bidding over the telephone for lots at our discretion and providing you are prepared to bid up to at least the middle of the estimate. Telephone lines must be booked by close of business on the day before the sale, but they are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. The completion of a form is required, please enquire to receive the form.

Payment

Payment (in pounds sterling) can be made as soon as you have won your lot(s) by bank transfer only. Payments by cheque are accepted but lots are not released until cheques are cleared.

Our bank account details will be on the invoice that we email you.

Payment should be made within three days of the sale, and monies from wire transfers and cheques must be cleared into our account before items may be collected.

Artist's Resale Right

If you buy a work of art by a living artist or an artist who has died in the last 70 years, and which costs more than the UK sterling equivalent of €1,000, you will have to pay a royalty relating to the Artists Resale Right Regulations 2006. The royalties are administered by the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS), or the Artist’s Collecting Society (ACS), and no handling costs are retained by Rogers Jones & Co.

Items that may qualify for this royalty are marked in the catalogue with a tick next to the lot number.

The current royalty charges for qualifying items over €1,000 are:

Up to €50,000 4%
€50,000.01 to €200,000 3%
€200,000.01 to €350,000 1%
€350,000.01 to €500,000 0.5%
Exceeding €500,000 0.25%

Royalty charges are calculated using the Euro to UK sterling exchange rate on the day of the sale.

Import/Export

It is your responsibility to obtain the correct import/export licenses and CITES licenses for items which you are buying. Rogers Jones & Co take no responsibility for the export of goods which you have bought.
