---  DISCLAIMER & ABSENCE OF WARRANTIES:  All information contained online or in the brochure and related material is subject to the terms and conditions outlined in the Purchase Agreement.  The Property is being sold on an "AS IS, WHERE IS" basis.  No warranty or representation, either expressed or implied, concerning the Property, its condition, or the condition of any other components on the Property, is made by the Seller or Ness Bros.  All sketches and dimensions online or in the brochure are approximate.  The information contained online or in the Brochure is subject to verification by all parties relying on it.  No liability for its accuracy, errors, or omissions is assumed by the Seller or Ness Bros.  Each potential bidder is responsible for conducting his or her own independent inspections, investigations, inquiries, and due diligence concerning the property. 


---  TERMS:  Earnest Money of 10% down or $2,500.00, whichever is greater the day of Auction, balance is due in full upon delivery of the merchantable title and deed free and clear of all liens and encumbrances except as stated herein and subject to easements or restrictions of record.

---  POSSESSION:  The possession of the Property shall be 15 Days after closing, subject to tenant’s rights, by 5:00 P.M.
