By the custom of their business, auctioneers1 have a lien2 on goods entrusted to them for sale and on the deposit and purchase money for their charges and remuneration3. They also have a lien on documents of title to land. The lien not only entitles the auctioneer to retain the goods against claims by the principal seller, but also allows him to resist claims to the goods made by the buyer in support of his rights against the seller, and he will not in that situation be susceptible to a claim in tort for wrongful interference with goods4
