Conditions of Sale
A. All assessments, including improvement assessments which are
available for payment without interest or penalty for advance pay-
ment, taxes, rent, and ground rent, if any, shall be prorated as of the
closing date.
B. Seller makes no representations or warranties concerning the
condition of the property, including but not limited to mechanical
systems, dry basement, foundation, structural, or compliance
with code, zoning or building requirements and will make no
repairs to the property after execution of this contract. Pur-
chaser understands that regardless of whether the property is
being financed with an FHA-insured mortgage, Seller does not
guarantee or warrant that the property is free of visible or hidden
structural defects, termite damage, lead-based paint, or any
other condition that may render the property uninhabitable or
otherwise unusable. Purchaser acknowledges responsibility for
taking such action as it believes necessary to satisfy itself that the
property is in a condition acceptable to it, of laws, regulations and
ordinances affecting the property, and agrees to accept the prop-
erty in the condition existing on the date of this contract. It is
important for Purchaser to have a home inspection performed on
the property in order to identify any possible defects. If FHA
insured financing is used, up to $200 of the cost to perform the
inspection may be financed into the mortgage. Names of home
inspection companies can be found in the yellow pages of your
telephone directory under the heading “Home Inspection Services.
C. If financing is involved in this transaction (Item 4), Purchaser agrees
that should he/she/it fail to provide documentation indicating that
proper loan application was made in good faith within 10 calendar
days of the date this contract was accepted by Seller, and/or
thereafter otherwise to put forth good faith efforts to obtain necessary
financing, Seller shall have the option of rescinding this contract and
retaining all or a portion of Purchaser's earnest money deposit.
D. Seller may rescind this contract and return all or a portion of
Purchaser's earnest money deposit under the following conditions:
1. Seller has not acquired the property.
2. Seller is unable or unwilling to remove valid objections to the title
prior to closing.
3. Seller determines that purchaser is not an acceptable borrower.
Tender of the deposit shall release the Seller from any and all claims
arising from this transaction.
E. Purchaser may not perform repairs nor take possession of the prop-
erty until sale is closed. Risk of loss or damage is assumed by Seller
until sale is closed, unless Purchaser takes possession of the property
prior thereto, in which case State law shall apply. (1) If sale involves
FHA insured financing and after damage the property no longer
meets the intent of Minimum Property Standards (MPS), Seller may,
at its option, perform repairs or cancel the contract and return
Purchaser’s full earnest money deposit. If, after damage, the prop-
erty still meets the intent of MPS, Purchaser has the option of
accepting the property as-is, with a purchase price adjustment at
Seller’s sole discretion, or cancelling the contract and receiving
refund of full earnest money deposit. (2) If sale does not involve
FHA insured financing, Seller will not repair damage but may, at
Seller’s sole discretion, reduce the sale price. Purchaser has option
to cancel the contract and receive refund of full earnest money
deposit. Tender of the earnest money shall release Seller from any
claims arising from this transaction.
F. If this property is being offered with FHA insured mortgage financ-
ing available, Seller's acceptance of this contract constitutes a
commitment to insure, conditioned upon Purchaser being determined
by Seller or Direct Endorsement Underwriter to be an acceptable
borrower and further conditioned upon Seller's authority to insure the
mortgage at the time the sale is closed.
G. Purchaser understands that Seller's listing price is Seller's esti-
mate of current fair market value.
H. No member of or Delegate to Congress or Resident Commissioner
shall be admitted to any share or part of this contract or to any benefit
that may arise therefrom, but this provision shall not be construed to
extend to this contract if made with a corporation for its general
benefit.
I. Purchaser and Seller agree that this contract shall be binding upon
their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors or as-
signs but is assignable only by written consent of the Seller.
J. If this property was constructed prior to 1978, Seller has inspected for
defective paint surfaces (defined as cracking, scaling, chipping,
peeling or loose paint on all interior and exterior surfaces). Seller’s
inspection found no defective paint surfaces, or if defective paint
surfaces were found, Seller has treated or will treat such defective
surfaces in a manner prescribed by Seller prior to closing. Purchaser
understands and agrees that the Seller’s inspection and/or treat-
ment is not intended to, nor does it guarantee or warrant that all
lead-based paint and all potential lead-based paint hazards have
been eliminated from this property. Purchaser acknowledges that
he/she/it has received a copy of a pamphlet which discusses lead-
based paint hazards and has signed, on or before the date of this
contract, the Lead-Based Paint Addendum to Sales Contact - Prop-
erty Built Before 1978. Purchaser understands that the Lead-Based
Paint Addendum must be signed by all Purchasers and forwarded to
Seller with this contract. Contracts which are not in conformance
with these requirements will not be accepted by Seller.
K. The effective date of this contract is the date it is accepted (signed)
by the Seller.
L. If the amount stated in Item 5 exceeds actual and typical financing
and/or closing costs, such excess shall not be paid by Seller and may
not be used by Purchaser to reduce amount(s) due Seller.
M.Seller’s policies and requirements with regard to earnest money
(including forfeiture thereof), extensions of time in which to close
the sale, back-up offers, and allowable financing and/or closing costs
are detailed in instructions issued to selling brokers.
N. Seller makes no representations or guarantees that the property will,
in the future, be eligible for FHA insured mortgage financing,
regardless of its condition or the repairs which may be made.
O. Warning: Falsifying information on this or any other form of
the Department of Housing and Urban Development is felony.
It is punishable by a fine not to exceed $250,000 and/or a
prison sentence of not more than two years. (18 U.S.C. 1010,
3559; 3571)
P. This contract contains the final and entire agreement between Pur-
chaser and Seller and they shall not be bound by any terms, condi-
tions, statements, or representations, oral or written, not contained in
this contract.

All HUD Property Disposition sales of HUD-acquired properties are to close within the following timeframes of
acceptance of a HUD-9548 (1/99) Sales Contract offer to purchase:
30 days for all Cash/Hard Money purchasers
45 days for 203(b), 203(b) repair, or conventional financing
45 days for Non-profit purchasers
60 days for 203(k) financing
Forfeiture of Earnest Money Deposits Purchaser(s) ________ Selling Agent: ______
The failure by a Purchaser to close on the sale of property within the allowable period, including any extensions
approved by HUD, may result in the forfeiture of the entire earnest money deposit, except where special
circumstances exist. These situations will need to be documented and granted by HUD.
Investor Purchasers
1. Please note the 15-day inspection period applies to owner-occupant purchasers only. Investors may inspect the
property but will forfeit the entire earnest money deposit regardless of the inspection results.
2. Uninsured Sales The purchaser will forfeit the entire earnest money deposit for failure to close within the
allotted time, regardless of the reason.
3. Insured Sales The purchaser will forfeit fifty percent (50%) of the earnest money deposit for failure to close if
the purchaser is determine by HUD or Direct Endorsement underwriter to be an unacceptable buyer. The
purchaser will forfeit the entire earnest money deposit if sale fails to close for any other reason.
Owner-Occupant Purchasers
The purchaser will receive a refund of the entire earnest money deposit under the following circumstances:
1. There has been a death in the immediate family (contract holder, spouse, or children living in the same
household).
2. There has been a recent serious illness in the immediate family that has resulted in significant medical expenses
or substantial loss of income, thus adversely affecting the purchaser's financial ability to close the sale.
3. There has been a loss of job by one of the primary breadwinners, or substantial loss of income through no fault
of the purchaser.
4. For Insured sales, HUD (or a Direct Endorsement underwriter using HUD guidelines) determines that the
purchaser is not an acceptable borrower.
5. For Uninsured sales, the purchaser was pre-approved for mortgage financing in an appropriate amount by a
recognized mortgage lender and, despite good faith efforts, is unable to obtain mortgage financing. "Pre-
approved" means a commitment has been obtained from a recognized mortgage lender for mortgage financing
in a specified dollar amount sufficient to purchase the property.
6. For other good cause, as determined by HUD.
On an uninsured sale, the purchaser will forfeit fifty percent of the earnest money deposit in those instances where,
despite good faith efforts by the purchaser, there is an inability to obtain a mortgage loan from a recognized
mortgage lender.
On either type of sale, the purchaser will forfeit the entire earnest money deposit in those instances where no
supporting documentation is submitted, where the documentation fails to provide an acceptable cause for the buyer's
failure to close, or where documentation is not provided within a reasonable time following contract cancellation.

Allowable Closing Costs-Line 5 of Sales Contract (HUD 9548-1/99)
Upon closing of a HUD-owned single-family property, the Department will allow to be deducted from its proceeds,
purchaser financing and closing costs considered to be reasonable and customary in the jurisdiction where the
property is located. Form HUD-9548 (Sales Contract-Property Disposition Program), shall be used to reflect the
total dollar amount HUD is expected to pay towards a purchaser's financing and closing costs. However, in no event
may the costs exceed three percent (3%) of the property's gross purchase price. If the total closing costs reflected on
the HUD 1 settlement statement are less than the amount indicated on the sales contract, HUD will reimburse only
the actual costs charged and will not credit the purchaser with any difference either in cash or through a purchase
price. Within the three percent (3%) allowance, HUD will reimburse loan origination fees up to one percent (1%) of
the mortgage. However, on an FHA 203(k) rehabilitation mortgage, HUD will reimburse one and a half percent
(1.5%) of the mortgage.
Seller Disclosure
Seller makes no representations or warranties concerning the condition of the property, including but not limited to
mechanical systems, dry basement, foundation, structural, or compliance with code, zoning or building requirements
and will make no repairs to the property after execution of this contract. Purchaser understands that regardless of
whether the property is being financed with an FHA-insured mortgage, Seller does not guarantee or warrant that the
property is free of visible or hidden structural defects, termite damage, lead-based paint, mold, or any other
condition that may render the property uninhabitable or otherwise unusable. Purchaser acknowledges responsibility
for taking such action as it believes necessary to satisfy itself that the property is in a condition acceptable to it, of
laws, regulations and ordinances affecting the property and agrees to accept the property in the condition existing on
the date of this contract. Seller disclosure concerning HOA dues, Mello Roos taxes, assessments, or any tax
concerning HUD homes is based on available information but is not deemed complete or accurate. It is the
responsibility of the purchaser to obtain all information concerning these issues.
Walk-Thru Inspection
All Purchasers are strongly encouraged to conduct a walk through inspection PRIOR to the close of escrow. If a
Purchaser discovers a property condition that did not exist at the time of sale they must immediately notify HUD’s
property manager, BLB Resources, Inc. of the damage. Reporting of the damage does not guarantee the correction
of the problem that was discovered. Each case will be looked at, and a determination will be made as to whether the
damage will be repaired or proper credits given at the close of escrow if those repairs or credits are deemed to be in
the best interest of the Dept. of HUD. The purchaser assumes full responsibility for the property and its condition on
the date of close of escrow. The Department assumes no responsibility and will make no settlement, for damages
reported to HUD after the close of escrow. (See item # 13.E of HUD Sales Contract).
Offer Exceeding Appraised Value Purchaser(s) ________ Selling Agent: ______
I/we understand that if our offer exceeds the FHA Appraised AS-IS value and the property is being purchased with
FHA Financing, I/we will be responsible for the difference in cash.
Buyer Certification
I/we certify that I/we have read and understand all three pages of this addendum and declare that I/we have been
interviewed by a HUD approved Lender who has completed a loan application, verified employment, and obtained a
full credit report.
I/we acknowledge this policy and by signing below I/we understand I/we will forfeit our earnest money deposit if
we enter into this agreement without properly completing this qualification process.

For Your Protection: Get a Home Inspection
Name of Buyer (s) _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Property Address _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Why a Buyer Needs a Home Inspection
A home inspection gives the buyer more detailed information
about the overall condition of the home prior to purchase. In a
home inspection, a qualified inspector takes an in-depth,
unbiased look at your potential new home to:
evaluate the physical condition: structure, construction, and
mechanical systems
identify items that need to be repaired or replaced
estimate the remaining useful life of the major systems,
equipment, structure, and finishes
Appraisals are Different from Home
Inspections
An appraisal is different from a home inspection. Appraisals
are for lenders; home inspections are for buyers. An
appraisal is required for three reasons:
to estimate the market value of a house
to make sure that the house meets FHA minimum property
standards/requirements
to make sure that the house is marketable
FHA Does Not Guarantee the Value or
Condition of your Potential New Home
If you find problems with your new home after closing,
FHA can not give or lend you money for repairs, and FHA
can not buy the home back from you.
Radon Gas Testing
The United States Environmental Protection Agency and
the Surgeon General of the United States have
recommended that all houses should be tested for radon.
For more information on radon testing, call the National
Radon Information Line at 1-800-SOS-Radon or
1-800-767-7236. As with a home inspection, if you
decide to test for radon, you may do so before signing
your contract, or you may do so after signing the contract
as long as your contract states the sale of the home
depends on your satisfaction with the results of the radon
test.
Be an Informed Buyer
It is your responsibility to be an informed buyer. Be sure
that what you buy is satisfactory in every respect. You
have the right to carefully examine your potential new
home with a qualified home inspector. You may arrange
to do so before signing your contract, or may do so after
signing the contract as long as your contract states that
the sale of the home depends on the inspection.
I/we understand the importance of getting an independent home inspection. I/we have considered this before signing a
contract with the seller for a home. Furthermore, I/we have carefully read this notice and fully understand that FHA
will not perform a home inspection nor guarantee the price or condition of the property.
______ I/We choose to have a home inspection performed.
I/We choose not to have a home inspection performed.
