This property is being sold “as is, where is, as inspected, day of auction”. Neither the Seller nor the Auctioneer guarantees the accuracy or credibility of pre-auction information. Prospective purchasers are required to perform due diligence prior to bidding at the auction. This means the prospective purchaser must personally seek out the information required for the prospective purchaser to determine the property suitable for purchase. If dimensions are important, measure. If zoning and use is important, contact the appropriate city or county department to inquire as to permitted uses. If any inspection is needed, please consult a professional in the related field. Come to the auction PREPARED to bid.

Prospective Purchasers of residential structures built prior to 1978 have a 10-day period beginning with the first appearance of auction advertising in which to inspect the subject premises for lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazards. If such inspections are not performed within the 10-day period provided for, the Purchaser will at the time of signing the purchase contract be required to agree to relinquish the right to perform any further such lead inspections or tests prior to closing the transaction, and will agree to accept the property in "as is" condition.
