All bidders to be aware that the present septic system is not functioning correctly, which prevents normal use of household drains and requires use of a manually operated check valve in order to prevent internal flooding during periods of precipitation or when saturated soils exist, and are buying property in “AS IS” condition. 


---  BIDDERS PACKET: All bidders must have registered for the auction and received a Bidder’s Packet which includes all documents that the buyer will be signing.


---  CONDUCT OF THE AUCTION:  Conduct of the auction and increments of bidding are at the direction and discretion of the auctioneer.  The seller and selling agents reserve the right to preclude any person from bidding if there is any question as to the person’s identity, credentials, fitness to bid, financial ability to buy, etc.  All decisions of the Auctioneer are final.


---  AGENCY DISCLOSURE & GENERAL OFFICE POLICIES:  Ness Bros. will represent the Seller exclusively

      unless a Ness Bros. Agent has a signed buyer agency agreement with Buyer, then that agent has a limited agency

      with Buyer. 


---  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. A Buyer’s Premium of 5%, or minimum of $2,500, whichever is greater will be added to final bid and included in the total contract price.  All bids accepted on the Real Estate subject to Sellers approval.


---  TITLE POLICY:  A preliminary title policy has been prepared by Lime City Title Co., which will be preparing the final title policy plus conducting the Closing.  Seller and Buyer agree to use Lime City Title.

---   EXECUTION OF PURCHASE AGREEMENT: The successful bidder has earned the right to make an offer to the

      seller; no sale has been completed. The bidder will be required to execute the Real Estate Purchase Agreement

      immediately following the close of the auction.  Buyer's offer expires 11:59 P.M. (local time) seven days after the

      auction date, unless Seller timely accepts it; the Earnest Money will be returned if Seller does not accept the successful bid, subject to any required approvals.

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


---  SURVEY:  The Seller has a legal description for the property so no survey will be provided.  If a survey is requested, it will be paid for by the Buyer.


---  CLOSING: Balance of the purchase price is due in cash at closing, which will take place on or before the Thirtieth (30th) day following the Accepted Date.  The fee charged by any closing agent, including an attorney acting as a closing agent for both parties, or Buyer's lender acting in such capacity, for closing services shall be paid equally by the parties.  Buyer will be responsible for paying a $245.00 administration transaction commission payable to Ness Bros.
