The following additional terms and conditions are hereby included as part of the Contract between Seller and Buyer for the above
referenced Premises. Delivery of all notices and documentation shall be deemed delivered and received when sent as required by
Section 8m of the Contract.
CONTINGENT UPON ACCEPTABLE SHORT SALE AGREEMENT
Buyer and Seller acknowledge that there is more debt owing against the Premises than the purchase price. Therefore, this
Contract is contingent upon an agreement between the Seller and Seller’s creditor(s), acceptable to both, to sell the Premises for
less than the loan amount(s) (“short sale”). Buyer and Seller acknowledge that it may take weeks or months to obtain creditor(s)
approval of a short sale.
Nothing shall limit a Seller from accepting subsequent offers from subsequent buyer(s) and submitting the back-up contract(s) to
Seller’s creditor(s) for consideration. All parties understand and agree that Seller’s creditor(s) may elect to allow the Seller to sell
the Premises only to the holder of the Contract with terms and conditions most acceptable to creditor(s).
DOCUMENTATION TO CREDITOR(S)
Seller shall submit to creditor(s) a copy of this Contract, including this and other Addenda, and any other documentation required by the
creditor(s) for approval of this sale within ﬁve (5) days after Contract acceptance. Seller agrees to diligently work to obtain short sale
approval and will promptly provide the creditor(s) with all additional documentation required, including an appraisal, at Seller’s expense,
if required. Seller instructs creditor(s) to provide approval status updates to Broker(s) and Buyer upon request.

Agreement Notice: If Seller and Seller’s creditors enter into a short sale agreement, the Seller shall immediately deliver notice
to Buyer (“Agreement Notice”).

listed items shall be in working condition at the earlier of possession or COE. However, Seller warrants and shall maintain and
repair the Premises so that, pursuant to lines 175-176 of the Contract, at the earlier of possession or COE, the Premises, including
all heating, cooling, mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems (including swimming pool and/or spa, motors, ﬁlter systems,

included in the sale, will be in substantially the same condition as on the date of Contract acceptance and all personal property not

Creditor Requirements: Buyer and Seller agree to cooperate with Creditor(s) and sign additional Creditor disclosure(s) or execute

additional cost or liability.
