    The winning bidder ("buyer") is allowed an inspection period to verify that the item substantially complies with the published description. A buyer who has inspected an item prior to final bid shall be deemed to have accepted the condition of the item at the time of the inspection but may reserve inspection following close of the auction only as to any changes in the item between the time of the initial inspection and a subsequent inspection made within the time for voiding the sale as set forth herein.

A buyer who voids a sale when the item substantially complies with the published description shall be banned from future bidding with USauctions in addition to any other remedies provided for hereunder. In the event buyer properly voids the sale in a timely manner as required hereunder, buyer's sole remedy shall be to receive a refund of the portion of the purchase price paid. BUYER SHALL HAVE NO RIGHT TO ANY PRICE ADJUSTMENT SHOULD BUYER ELECT NOT TO VOID THE SALE AS PROVIDED FOR HEREIN. Neither USauctions nor the owner of the item shall be liable for any of buyer's costs incidental to the sale including, but not exclusively, travel, inspection, shipping or repairs. Any actions undertaken by USauctions or any item owner to assist buyer with shipping this item shall not be construed as placing an obligation upon USauctions or an item owner to ship the item, pay for shipping or be responsible for the shipment in any manner whatsoever.

In the event buyer defaults, Buyer shall be obligated to pay a fee to USauctions equal to 10% of the bid amount and Buyer shall further be obligated to pay the owner of the item any shortfall between the bid price and the amount received from an arms length resale of the item whether sold at a private or public sale.
