Sellers must be the rightful owners or authorized by the owners of such property, a court of law, or through power of attorney to sell an Asset. Sellers must produce evidence of ownership and/or authorization to sell and Asset upon request of DrCheaps or a Buyer.
Assets are listed for the specified bidding periods shown on the Site and are deemed “sold” at the close of bidding which will be set at a time pre-determined by the Seller. Each Asset will have a description and disclosure information on the Site, as well as any additional conditions of sale provided by the Seller. Once bidding commences, Bidders may make a bid at any time prior to closing of the bidding. All Assets will have a minimum bid price disclosed on the Site. For certain Assets, the Seller may impose a reserve price which is not disclosed on the Site. If there are no bids above the minimum bid or reserve price (whichever is higher), then the Seller is not obligate to sell the Asset. After bidding closes on each Asset, DrCheaps will send the highest Bidder and Seller an email detailing the highest bid and contact information. In all auctions Buyers who receive a winning bid notice are legally bound to buy the asset at the quoted bid amount (see “Obligations of Buyers and Sellers” below), and the Seller is legally bound to sell the asset, pursuant to These Terms & Conditions, subject to the additional conditions of sale specified by Seller. The Seller is obligated to contact the winning Bidder within three (3) business days to complete the transaction (or the Seller may engage a representative, including DrCheaps to contact the winning Bidder on the Seller’s behalf, pursuant to prior agreement). After three (3) business days if the Seller is unable to contact the winning Bidder, for whatever reason, the Seller may, in its sole discretion (i) continue to attempt to contact the high bidder with assistance from DrCheaps; (ii) after contacting DrCheaps, contact the second highest Bidder and sell the Asset to the second highest Bidder; or (iii) re-list the asset on the Site. By selling an Asset to the next highest Bidder, neither the Seller nor DrCheaps is releasing any claims he/she/it may have against the highest Bidder for non-performance. Once the Seller contacts the winning Bidder, the Seller and winning Bidder shall complete the settlement of the purchase and sale of the Asset pursuant to “Settlement of Transactions” below.
All Travel items are offered subject to availability in specific, contracted classes of service. Once reservations are confirmed or certificates are provided they are NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-CHANGEABLE. Reservations cannot be changed or endorsed in any way after issuance. After departure, all issues pertaining to routing and carriage are at the sole discretion of the service provider involved.
Obligations of Buyers and Sellers
These Terms & Conditions, together with any additional conditions of sale provided by a Seller for a particular Asset disclosed on the Site, comprise a contract between a Seller and the winning Bidder in any completed auction. By bidding on an Asset a Bidder agrees, and by listing an Asset on the Site, a Seller agrees, to be bound by these Terms & Conditions and the Seller’s conditions of sale included in the Asset’s description, so long as those conditions of sale are not in violation of these Terms & Conditions or unlawful. In the event of any direct conflict between these Terms & Conditions and any conditions of sale provided by a Seller, then these Terms & Conditions shall prevail, except that in the event of a direct conflict regarding the timing and requirements of settlement provided in the above “Settlement of Transactions”. Then the Seller’s conditions of sale shall prevail with respect to such provisions.
A bid made by a Buyer is an offer to purchase the asset from the Seller at the stated price. The bid is an irrevocable offer, subject only to material changes in the description of an asset made after such bid is placed by a Buyer. Buyers are required to conduct any research or due diligence of an asset prior to making a bid. All Assets are listed and sold on an “as is” basis. If a Buyer bids on an asset and that bid represents the highest bid for that asset, and the highest bid is at or above the Seller’s minimum and/or reserve price (whichever is higher), the Buyer’s bid is deemed accepted by the Seller, except for an exceptional circumstance, such as a typographical error. Once a Buyer’s bid is accepted by the Seller, the Buyer is obligated to purchase the asset at the price He/She/It offered and pursuant to these Terms & Conditions and the Seller’s conditions of sale. If a Seller receives at least one bid at or above the Seller’s stated minimum price and or stated reserve price, the Seller is obligated to complete the transaction with the highest Bidder upon the completion of the bidding, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as a clear typographical error or other conditions stated in these Terms and Conditions.
Settlement of Transactions
The settlement of a purchase and sale of an Asset following a completed bidding process shall be conducted pursuant to this Section, unless otherwise provided in the Seller’s conditions of sale or in a written agreement executed by the Buyer and Seller. Unless otherwise provided in the Seller’s conditions of sale or otherwise agreed upon by the Seller and Buyer in writing, final settlement shall take place no later than seven(7) business days after Buyer is given a Winning Bid notice.
