Sales conditions
Conditions of sale - Brussels
Conditions of sale
The auction sales organized by the Auction House
Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels are hereby subject to
the following conditions of sale:
Goods put up for sale
Potential purchasers are invited to examine the
goods that might be of interest to them during the
exhibits which are organized by the Auction House
Cornette de Saint Cyr before the auctions.
Condition reports may be requested from the Auction
House by letter, telephone or electronic mail. They will
be sent free of charge but are to be used for information
only. The reports will include the artistic and scientific
information known to the Auction House at the date of
the sale and the latter will not accept any responsibility
for errors or omissions.
The descriptions to be found in the catalogue are
drawn up by the Auction House and where applicable
by the expert who assists the former, subject to notices
and corrections given when the lot is presented and included
in the bill of sale. Sizes, weights and estimates
are given for information purposes only. The colors of
the works included in the catalogue may vary due to
printing techniques.
The lack of information on the condition of the goods
in the catalogue will by no means imply that the lot
is in a perfect state of preservation or free from restoration,
wear, cracks, relining or other imperfection.
The goods are sold in the state they are found at the
time of sale.
As the prior exhibit has enabled potential purchasers
to examine the object, no claim will be accepted once
the hammer has gone down.
The indications appearing on the catalogues, advertisements,
brochures and any other written material
produced by the Auction House Cornette de Saint Cyr
Brussels should be considered as simple indications
and are not binding in any case. They do not guarantee
the exactitude of a declaration relative to the author,
origin, date, age, attribution, estimates, weight,
sizes or material state of the lot. Consequently buyers
must verify for themselves the nature and material
states of the lots.
Any claim must reach the Auction by recorded latter
not later than 8 days after the retrieval of the object
or cannot be considered. In any case, for sales subject
to article 1649 quarter of the Belgian Civil Code,
the seller answers to the consumer for any fault of
conformity that exists when the good is delivered or
which appears within a delay of one year of this date;
the buyer must inform the seller of the existence of a
fault of conformity within a delay of two months of
noticing the fault.
ln the event of a withdrawal of an article prior to the
sale by a depositor and after the publication of the catalogue
or, in the event of a modification to the minimum
price rendering it impossible to put the article up
for sale immediately, the seller will be obliged to pay
the purchaser and seller fees calculated on the basis of
the median estimate stipulated in the catalogue to the
Auction House Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels by way
of compensation. The article which has been withdrawn
will not be returned to the seller until the aforementioned
fees are paid. If no payment is forthcoming,
the article will be put up for sale once again in line with
the terms of the initial sale requisition.

the individual who has made the highest bid. In the
event of a double bid which is confirmed as such by
the auctioneer, the lot will be put up for sale again and
any or all persons present will have the right to take

Tax refund
The VAT will be refunded to the buyers who are

The export declaration must mention the auction

The export of the works of art considered as “cultural
goods” must be authorized by the Ministry for the
Arts (see article L 111-2 of the Patrimony Code).

requires a certificate of export issued by the Ministry
of the Arts with a delay up to 4 months.
This certificate could be asked by the Auction House
on behalf of the buyer after the sale.
The export to a country outside the European Union
requires a certificate of export as well as an export
licence and a customs declaration.

in order to ask for these export authorizations.
The Ministry of the Arts issues or refuses the certificate
of export within a maximum delay of 4 months and the
licence export need two further weeks to be obtained.
The documents required must be presented to the
customs officers.
The law punishes to penalties the person who exports
or tries to export a cultural good without the authorizations
required (see article L 114-1 of the Patrimony Code).
The works of art are considered as cultural goods
according to their age (generally from 50 years) and
their value (price with taxes included) which varies
by categories (€ 150 000 or more for paintings, € 15
000 or more for prints…). These thresholds are set by
the decree n° 93-124 of the 29th January 1993 and by
the European Regulation of the 18th December 2008
(n° 116/2009).
The buyer cannot make the export certificate as a
condition of his payment.

the refusal of the export certificate from the Ministry
for the Arts.
