As-Is Sales Subject To The Probate Code

As-Is Sales Subject To The Probate Code

As-is subject to the probate code is what many buyers agents forget when they write offers. We always put this into the agent confidential remarks on MLS. A seller is under no obligation to repair anything on the California residential purchase agreement. Probate sales double-down, if you will, on the as-is.

Getting into contract on a probate sale and then attempting renegotiating the price later is not a smart idea. Probates generally are working with little to no extra cash and every penny is most often required by the administrator of the estate.

If you are trying to purchase a probate listing, always make your highest and best offer and stick to it. Your inspections are to satisfy you as to what you are buying. As-is subject to the probate code is always an important consideration when writing an offer.
