29. Liability as bailee.

Normally specific goods are sold at auction1. In such sales property in the goods will, unless a contrary intention appears, pass to the buyer on conclusion of the sale2. Thereafter, the goods will belong to the buyer. If, as is sometimes provided by the auction conditions, the buyer is entitled to a certain time to collect the goods, in the interim the auctioneer3 will hold them as bailee for him, and he will then be under a duty to take reasonable care of them
