The Antique Legal Disclaimers, Terms and Conditions.

Classified Disclaimer

All requests to place a Classified Advert must comply with the following:

1. All Classified adverts offered for publication on must be legal, decent, honest and truthful.

2. All copy must comply with the British Code of Advertising Practice and the Advertising Standards Authority.

3. All adverts are accepted at the publisher's ( absolute discretion.

3a. Any email for the Classified Ads Pages that contains an attachment will be deleted, unread. Sorry, but I have to be strict about this.
If you would like to include a picture, please upload it to your own webspace and include the Web page URL in the email [Most ISP's give you free Web space where you can place such items]. I will visit the URL, make a copy of the picture and upload it for you. Alternatively, for our land address hover here, and I'm quite happy for you to post your picture on a disc.

4. When deemed necessary, for brevity or otherwise, supplied material may be edited at the publisher's discretion. You may be asked to OK and confirm these changes by email, before publication.

5. Whilst publishes its Classified pages in good faith, it is emphasised strongly that cannot under any circumstances accept responsiblilty for the accuracy, truth or otherwise of any advertisement or picture supplied by any third party.

TO HELP YOU get the most out of your Antique Collector selling/buying experience;
5a. Initial contact on these pages is by email, unless an advertiser also wishes to include a telephone number or address. If you are a seller or purchaser on these pages, all normal safeguards should be adhered to before giving absolute details of the location of an item, or before releasing funds prior to careful inspection of an item.
Straight away establish land contact arrangements outside of email and mobiles. If you feel uncomfortable about any part of a deal, sometimes a quick phone call is a great way to resolve misunderstandings.

5b. Tips for Sellers:
Give a Complete Description.
Make sure you have verifiable ownership documents.
Specify who will pay for shipping if a cost is to be incurred.
Mention the location of the item, county or town.
Highlight your item with a picture or photograph.
You may want to insure the item before allowing examination or transporting it.
It's wise to negotiate cleared funds before release of the item.
If that's not possible, then an 'Escrow' service may be the answer.
[This is when a buyer places money in the custody of a trusted third party. The money is then paid to the seller once a specified set of conditions, that both parties have agreed to, are met. This usually includes delivery and time for inspection.]

5b. Tips for Buyers:
If the description is in anyway unclear, be sure to clarify it with the seller before opting to buy any item.
Check the sellers documents to make certain they actually own the item for sale.
Talking one-on-one with the seller when viewing the item can help clear up misunderstandings about the sale.
Check any guarantee offered and talk about its workability.
Check who pays shipping and insurance.
Hold the funds to pay by agreed terms.

5c. These points are here for guidance only to help you make informed choices about the selling and purchasing of any item advertised on this site. Ultimately, as with any other sale or purchase, you have to make the final decision. If during negotiations you are in anyway unsure about the validity of a sale or purchase, WALK AWAY!

6. In relation to item 5 and 5a-c; To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and regulation, does not make any express or implied warranties, representations or endorsements whatsoever with regard to any advertising placed on the Classified advert pages or any other related pages, and also includes, without limitation, warranties of title or noninfringement, or any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. In addition, shall not be liable for any cost or damage arising either directly or indirectly from any such usage or transaction.

7. The Editor/Webmaster reserves the right to refuse inclusion into the Classified Pages at his/her sole discretion.
