An auctioneer1 has implied authority to receive the deposit on sales both of land and of goods2, but no implied authority by virtue of his agency3 alone to receive the purchase money4. Where in a sale of goods, as is generally the case, the conditions contemplate that the auctioneer is to complete the sale, the position is different and he is then usually authorised to receive the purchase money5. This does not mean necessarily that he is under a duty to collect the price6.
