Conditions for sale
“The KAA also requires that all the interested purchasers view the items as per the viewing dates set and verify their respective details.
This is because these are not warranted by either the auctioneer or by the KAA as the items being offered on sale are on “as is where is basis” stated by the public notice.
This indicates that the items shall be sold in their existing state and therefore the responsibility rests upon the buyer to exercise due diligence before bidding.
Additionally, during the auction, in the case of the bid price being lower than the deposit price, the bidder shall be refunded the difference between the bid price and the deposit amount.
Interested parties are required to download the catalogue containing the details of items earmarked for disposal from the KAA website.
“The sales will be subject to reserve price” notes KAA through their public notice. Reserve price refers to the minimum price that a seller is willing to accept from a buyer.
Moreover, the public notice also stated that all the purchased items shall be paid for and collected from the respective KAA premises within 7 days from the date of the auction.
Failure to do this will result in a charge storage rate of Kshs 500 per day. Items not collected within 14 days of the auction will be forfeited by the authority.
