If such interest rate exceeds the legal rate permitted by law, then the maximum legal rate permitted by law shall apply. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount. The Buyer must pay Propstore interest together with any overdue amount.

In addition, a defaulting Buyer will be deemed to have granted and assigned to Propstore and its affiliated companies, a continuing security interest of first priority in any property or money owing to such Buyer in our possession or in the possession of any of its affiliated companies, and Propstore may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to Propstore or to any affiliated company. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until Propstore has collected good funds.

Winning bids are legally binding and must be paid regardless of final shipping expenses.
5.3.2. After 30 days after close of Auction, if Buyer has not made arrangements for and paid the shipping cost of the Lots purchased, or has otherwise failed to collect the Lots, Propstore may impose a storage fee of 3% of the Hammer Price per month to be charged to the Buyer.

It is the Buyer's sole obligation and responsibility to be aware of, to comply with, and to pay for all relevant import duties, taxes, VAT, customs and other fees charged in the area of delivery.

5.3.5. Unless otherwise agreed by Propstore in writing, the fact that the Buyer wishes to apply for an export license does not affect or postpone the Buyer's obligation to make payment in accordance with Propstore's payment terms nor Propstore's right to charge interest or storage charges on late payment. Propstore shall not be obligated to rescind or cancel a sale nor to refund any monies paid by the Buyer to Propstore as a result of or related to the Buyer's failure or inability to obtain an export license.
5.3.6. Should the Buyer make own arrangements with third parties for shipping, handling, or delivery of any Lots, Propstore shall have and accepts no liability or responsibility for the acts or omissions of any such third parties. Similarly, where Propstore suggests other handlers, packers or carriers, its suggestions are made on the basis of its general experience of such parties in the past.
