Terms of Sale:
Registration at the auction confirms your agreement to the terms and conditions of sale as stated in the Contract for Sale and its Addenda (the 'Contract') which are incorporated by reference into your bidding. DO NOT BID unless you have registered, received a Bidder's Card and Sale Day Notes and have read and agreed to be bound by the terms of sale in the Contract as they are enforceable against you upon becoming a high bidder.
All properties are sold "AS IS, WHERE IS" with no financing, inspection or other contingencies to sale. Williams & Williams represents the Sellers only and does not inspect properties on bidder's behalf. Read the Contract and Sale Day Notes to determine the existence of any disclosures, exclusions, representations and disclaimers. Do not bid if you have not inspected the property. By bidding you agree to all disclosures.
Buyers receive a deed and insurable title to each property, as evidenced by the Title Insurance offered by the Closer indicated in the Contract. Current year's property taxes are pro-rated through day of closing as customary.
A Buyer's Premium of 2% will be added to the high bid and included in the total purchase price. Please see the Sale Day Notes, The Contract for Sale, and/or the Auctioneer for specifics about the property you wish to bid on.
Each high bidder must make a 10% non-refundable deposit per property ($2,500 MINIMUM - whichever is greater) immediately following auction. Cash, cashier's checks, and personal checks (electronically processed) are accepted. If you are a resident / citizen of a country outside of the US, certified funds (bank check, wire transfer, certified checks) are required for the down payment and closing. The balance of the purchase price and all closing costs are due at closing, which shall occur within thirty (30) days of the Seller's acceptance. Closing costs will include title exam, title policy, closing fee, filing costs and any other fees noted. If for any reason Seller does not perform or accept the terms of the Contract, the sole remedy shall be the return of Buyer's deposit.
Bidding starts at the nominal Opening Bid indicated and is open to the public. The Auctioneer will call the sale and control any increments of bidding. To make a bid, raise your hand or Bid Card to be recognized. The bidding usually takes less than 3 minutes for each property. Absentee bids may be accepted at the discretion of the Auctioneer. The Auctioneer reserves the right to enter bids on behalf of absentee bidders as specified in 21 NCAC 4B. Any mistakes during bidding as to who has the high bid and/or at what price may be called to the Auctioneer's attention and corrected. The Auctioneer is the sole arbiter and controller of the conduct of the auction and shall be the final and absolute authority without liability to any party.
Your inspection of the property and attendance at this auction are at your own risk. Broker and Seller, their agents and employees, expressly disclaim any "invitee" relationship and shall not be liable to any person for damage to their person or property while in, on or about these properties, nor shall they be liable for any defects, dangers or conditions on the property. All persons enter the property and attend the auction at their own risk and shall defend, indemnify, and save harmless Broker and Seller, their agents and employees, from any and all liability attendant thereto.
All auctions are subject to court or seller approval. Most sales are approved within 7 days. Buyers are not allowed possession until Closing and filing of the deed, at which time the property should be re-keyed. If for any reason the court or Seller approval is not granted, the Down Payment shall be returned in its entirety to the high bidder. "Showing" requests from Buyers after the auction may not be able to be accommodated.
Williams & Williams and the Seller expressly disclaim any liability for errors, omissions or changes regarding any information provided for these sales. Please read the Contract and Sale Day Notes for a full and complete understanding of Williams & Williams and Seller's disclaimers. Bidders are strongly urged to rely solely upon their own inspections and opinions in preparing to purchase property and are expressly advised to not rely on any representations made by the Seller or their agents and employees. Property information may change without notice and potential purchasers should investigate all data fully before relying upon it.

Any property may be withdrawn by Auction Network or Williams & Williams at any time before the actual sale without any liability therefore.
