Summary of Services Provided

SCF Arts Brokerage provides a variety of services including the review and assessment of all documents filed, the investigation and attempted verification of the authority of both the Buyer’s Agent and the Owner’s Agent to act on behalf of their respective principals, the identity and legal status of the Buyer and Owner, the Owner’s rights in the sale of the artwork, and the financial capability of the Buyer to perform the purchase of the artwork.

The firm further investigates and attempts to confirm that there are no conflicting claims on the artwork or legal impediments to sale of the artwork (limited to claims and rights that are publicly asserted of record in the country of origin).
