Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / Conditions of Sale for an Auction House
French term or phrase: Union des Commissionnaires de l'Hôtel des Ventes
Le mobilier, et de manière générale les pièces volumineuses, sont conservés au magasinage par l’Union des Commissionnaires de l’Hôtel des Ventes (UCHV). Les frais de stockage sont à la charge de l’acheteur et lui seront facturés directement par l’UCHV, par quinzaine et selon les tarifs en vigueur. Le magasinage des objets n’engage pas la responsabilité de la Maison de Ventes.

I'm not at all sure how to get round explaining UCHV. My searches on the web have not provided me with much information.

TIA
