In advertising an auction sale by any licensed auctioneer, the principal auctioneer
or auctioneers who physically conduct the sale shall be listed prominently in such
advertising as used by said auctioneer or auctioneers. The individual auctioneer or auctioneers who conduct the sale shall be the person
or persons who call for, accept and close bids on the majority of items offered for
Any apprentice auctioneer who advertises, as provided in this section, shall indicate
in his or her advertisement the name of the sponsoring auctioneer under whom he or
she is licensed.
The auctioneer's name and license number shall be displayed in equal prominence with
the name of the apprentice auctioneer and license number in such advertisement.
Nothing in the provisions of this article shall be construed so as to prohibit any
other auctioneer, licensed pursuant to this article, from assisting with any auction,
notwithstanding the failure to list the name of the other auctioneer in any advertising
associated with such auction.
It is unlawful to conduct or advertise that an auction is absolute if minimum opening
bids are required or other conditions are placed on the sale that limit the sale other
than to the highest bidder.
No property other than the property of a specified deceased person or the property
of a specified living person's estate may be sold at auction if the auction is conducted
or advertised only as an estate auction. However, property other than that of the specified estate may be sold at the sale
if all advertisements for the sale specify that items will be sold that do not belong
to the estate and those items are identified at the sale.
