      A $3,000 deposit, or ten percent (10%) of the Purchase Price (whichever is greater), on each property, payable by cashier’s check to be delivered to the Auctioneer’s office at 6500 Falls Road, Baltimore, MD 21209, or sent by wire transfer, by 4:30 p.m. on the day of the auction. Contract execution is to be completed by the Purchaser, in person, by 4:30 p.m. on the day of the auction at the Auctioneer’s office at 6500 Falls Road, Baltimore, MD 21209. Balance to be paid in cash at settlement, which shall take place thirty (30) days following final ratification of the sale by the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City at a location designated by the Receiver. Interest on unpaid purchase money charged at rate of 8% per annum from the date of final ratification of sale to the date of settlement. All recordation taxes, transfer taxes, and other costs incident to the sale and settlement shall be borne by purchaser. Purchaser’s adjustments for ground rent, governmental taxes, municipal charges or assessments, shall be as of the date of settlement. The Receiver may, in its sole and absolute discretion, extend or adjust the date of settlement as may be required; however, in the event of delay due to purchaser (as determined by Receiver), the purchaser’s adjustments shall be as of the settlement date originally provided in the contract of sale. The Receiver, in its sole and absolute discretion, may reduce the amount of purchaser’s interest or adjustments due to extension of the settlement date. Time is of the essence for purchaser’s obligations. If Receiver is unable to deliver good and marketable title, purchaser’s sole remedy in law or equity shall be limited to the refund of the deposit. Upon refund of the deposit, this sale shall be null and void and of no effect and the purchaser shall have no further claim against the Receiver or Auctioneers. If purchaser breaches the contract of sale, the Receiver may elect to retain the deposit as liquidated damages.

      Each property is being sold and purchaser agrees to accept the property “AS IS”, “WHERE IS”, and “WITH ALL FAULTS,” without any representation or warranty whatsoever as to its condition, environmental matters, permit status, construction, faulty construction or damage to improvements, violation of laws, fitness for any particular purpose, development, merchantability, occupancy or any other warranty or matter of any nature whatsoever, express or implied, all whether known or unknown and whether disclosed or undisclosed. The purchaser waives and releases the Receiver, the Auctioneers, and their respective agents, successors and assigns from any and all claims the purchaser and/or its successors and assigns may now have or may have in the future relating to the condition of the property, including but not limited to the environmental condition thereof. Purchaser shall be responsible for obtaining physical possession of the property and assumes the risk of loss or damage to the property from the date of contract forward.

      Each property is sold subject to all easements, conditions, restrictions, covenants, ground rents, agreements and other matters of any nature identified in this Advertisement, or appearing in any public records on or before the date of sale or announced at the Public Auction, as well as any matters that an accurate survey or physical inspection of the property might disclose. The ground rent or fee simple title stated for each property is as determined from sources deemed to be reliable, and is believed to be accurate. However, no express or implied warranty is made or may be inferred from any such representation. Any ground rent determined to be on the property, including the redemption thereof, is the sole responsibility of the purchaser, irrespective of whether that ground rent is stated within the advertisement or contract of sale. Each property will be conveyed by Receiver’s Deed without warranties. Each property is sold subject to all matters referenced in the vacant building receivership proceeding pending in the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City, including, but not limited to exceptions to sale and all housing, building and zoning code violations.

      Due to the nature of the Receivership action and the Order of the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City, purchaser shall not assign the contract of sale without prior, written permission of the Receiver, which may be withheld in Receiver’s sole and absolute discretion.
