Subject to Disclosure Documents

2 Replies

I am purchasing a property Subject to in the next month or so, and I am gathering info to prepare myself for that as this is my first sub2.

I scanned through the docs in the FilePlace and did not see any disclosures specific for Sub2's.

Everything will be done through a Real Estate Attorney, so I am not looking for legally advice or documentation that will be used without being reviewed.

I would like to review types of discourses you have used when purchasing sub2 so I can feel comfortable with my understand of everything when I do begin the process.

Thanks in advance!

Here is something I include along with Power of Attorney, Sales Agreement, Insurance Cancellation Letter, Third Party Agreement, etc.
