If you agree to the provisional appraised price that we have indicated, please either send the property to us or deliver it to us in person.
If you have a large number of properties or a property that would be difficult to ship, please consult us for separate instructions.

Once we have received the actual property, we will appraise it, set the expected bidding price (estimate) and determine the minimum selling price (reserve price) that is agreeable to you.

If you are submitting a property for the first time, please fill out a Customer Registration Form after agreeing to our SBI Individual Information Protection Policy, and provide personal identification documents.

Before the auction is held, we will send you a Consignment Contract containing the final agreement (reserve price, exhibition fees, special provisions), and conclude the Contract.Catalogue listing fee: 1 page ¥20,000 (2 pages ¥30,000)

As soon as payment by the successful bidder has been confirmed, we will send you a Payment Statement.Subsequently, within 35 days after the auction, we will remit by wire transfer an amount equal to the hammer price less a commission and any agreed-upon expenses to a bank account that you designate. If payment by the successful bidder is delayed or if the successful bidder fails to pay, we will deal with it according to our auction agreement.
Properties that are not sold during the auction are held an additional week for the After Sale period, as long as there are no particular offers, and if a prospective buyer appears, we will communicate the conditions that the prospective buyer indicates to you and conduct negotiations. Properties that are not sold during the After Sale period will be returned to you within 14 days after the day of the later. You may come to pick up the property or have us ship it to you or have us hold it to be submitted to later auction, as you prefer. You will be responsible for any packing and shipping fees for any properties that we send back to you on a C.O.D. basis.

From the time that the property arrives at our company until rights of ownership are transferred to the buyer, you as the owner are responsible for insuring the property. We charge a damage insurance premium (0.15% of the lower limit of the estimate), which executes a separate contract with a non-life insurance company.
Note, however, that there is no coverage for earthquakes, typhoons or later naturaldisasters. We recommend thatextremely valuable properties be insured according to the seller’s own insurance terms and conditions.
