2. Purchase Price.

A Buyer purchasing an item through Antiques on Kettner shall pay to the Seller the amount of the Full Purchase Price as provided in these Terms & Conditions.

We shall have no responsibility or liability with respect to inaccurate or incomplete information or otherwise with respect to the acts or omissions of Sellers, and as between the Buyer and us, the Buyer agrees to assume such risks. Except as otherwise specifically stated below or required by applicable law, all Property is sold AS-IS. ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR PURPOSE ARE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMED BY THE SELLER, except to the extent that any implied warranty of title is imposed on the Seller by law.

4. Limited Right of Rescission to Buyers

By offering Property for sale at a fixed price on this site, each Seller has agreed to honor the following right of rescission to the original Buyer of such Property.

The original Buyer shall have the right to inspect and rescind the transaction within 2 days by so notifying the Seller and returning the merchandise within three business days of receiving the Property to the Seller, in the same condition as when received by the Buyer, at the Buyer's risk, cost and expense if Property purchased through one of our channels is materially different (as of the time immediately prior to shipment to the Buyer) than as represented by the Seller on this site. Upon such return, Seller shall refund to the Buyer a full refund in the amount of the purchase price of the item, together with taxes and duties and excluding all other amounts paid to the Seller for packing and shipping, transportation, insurance, restocking and other charges. Seller shall remit to Buyer the amount of the required refund as set forth above for repayment within three business days of receipt of merchandise.

PLEASE NOTE: Seller’s posted policies will supersede the Antiques on Kettner required timelines as long as they are the same or extend the timelines set forth by Antiques on Kettner.

Buyer shall not be entitled to a refund from us. Seller shall have no obligation to pay any amount over to the Buyer unless and until the Buyer has returned the Property to the Seller as provided in the Terms and Conditions.

The above remedy of rescission and refund is exclusive and in lieu of all other remedies and damages otherwise available to the Buyer with respect to the Seller's breach of any of his/her obligations with regard to the characteristics, quality, condition or value of the Property. In no event shall our liability or the liability of the Seller extend beyond a refund as provided above, and in no event shall we or the Seller be liable for damages of any kind, whether classified as direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential or otherwise.

A Buyer with a claim against the Seller must contact the Seller directly to pursue the claim. Any refund will be paid directly by the Seller to the Buyer.

5. Payment and Delivery

At checkout, notification is sent by email to the Buyer. The Buyer will have two options based on whether shipping was added prior to the sale or after the sale.

a) If Shipping is Added prior to the Sale

Seller arranges for the shipping and determines the shipping price. This price may be added at the time Seller enters inventory online so that the shipping price is visible to the Buyer at the time of checkout. If Seller chooses to add shipping prior to the Sale, and the Buyer has selected debit or credit card as the method of payment, Seller will have access to the Buyer's card number to run his/her terminal. If the card number is denied, Seller shall be responsible for contacting the Buyer immediately to obtain a different card or other method of payment. If Buyer fails to pay the amount due to Seller, Seller will not be obligated to deliver the Item.

b) If Shipping is Added After an Item has been Purchased

If Seller chooses to add shipping after an Item has been Purchased, Seller will be able to see the item which the Buyer wishes to purchase and the Buyer's address. Seller will add shipping, handling, taxes (if applicable), insurance costs and any other costs applicable to the sale. When Seller clicks the submit button, the Buyer will be sent an email to decline additional charges within 3 days. If the Buyer takes no action within 3 days and has chosen to pay by debit or credit card, Seller will receive the credit card or debit card information. If the card number is denied, Seller shall be responsible for contacting the Buyer immediately to obtain a different card or other method of payment. If Buyer fails to pay the amount due to Seller, Seller will not be obligated to deliver the Item.

Shipping shall include insurance and tracking so that the date of delivery is identifiable. Seller shall allow the Buyer a period of at least 2 days once the item is received to inspect the item for compliance with the description provided in Seller’s listing and three business days to package and ship the item for return. If Seller wishes to allow a longer period of time, Seller may do so by providing this in his/her Return Policy. Restocking fees should also be outlined in this area. Please note: Seller’s posted policies will supersede the Antiques on Kettner required timelines as long as they are the same or extend the timelines set forth by Antiques on Kettner.

If Buyer refuses acceptance, merchandise shall be returned to Seller as outlined in the return policy posted on the item detail page and item review page in the checkout area. Buyer will be responsible for paying shipping charges to return the item to the Seller along with restocking fees outlined in Seller’s Return Policy, unless otherwise specified by the Seller. In the event Buyer refuses acceptance, Seller shall contact the Buyer to see if there was a problem and work with the Buyer to rectify the situation.

After Seller has received the Full Purchase Price from the Buyer, and Seller has shipped the item, the item will move to Buyer's Purchase History in Buyer’s account area.

Title and risk of loss shall pass to the Buyer when the Seller delivers the Property to the Shipper for delivery. The Buyer through the shipper shall process any loss, theft, or damage from that point in time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Seller shall lend reasonable assistance to the Buyer in resolving any such claims with the shipper and/or the insurer.

6. Remedies for Breach by a Buyer

If the Buyer fails to comply with its obligations under the Terms and Conditions, in addition to all other rights and remedies available by law to the Seller, including recovery of the Full Purchase Price and other damages, the Seller may elect to cancel the transaction and/or resell the Property. Such other damages include the right to hold the Buyer liable for all costs of enforcing rights under the Terms and Conditions, which include, but are not limited to, costs of collection, costs of reselling the Property, handling charges, late fees, commissions and reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses.

7. Requirements Imposed by Law and Indemnification

Disputes between the Seller and Buyer are to be resolved between the parties and we shall have no responsibility to participate in such proceedings. Sellers and Buyers should understand that applicable laws, rules and regulations of their respective home states, other states having a relation to the transaction, and/or of federal law may apply to give the parties rights beyond or different from those set forth in the Terms and Conditions. Such rights might include, but are not limited to, the right to know the identity of parties to a transaction, to receive notification of certain rights, to receive certain warranties or other recourse in connection with a purchase and sale transaction or otherwise. It is the obligation of the respective parties to comply with these laws, rules and regulations.
