McCrone, Jr., Inc., in October 1964, and containing 20,000 square feet of land or more, and which said plat is duly recorded among the Land Records of Kent County, Maryland in Plat Book W.H.G. No. 1, folio 104.

The foregoing property consists of approximately 20,000 square feet of land, more or less, and is improved by a DWELLING of approximately 1,092 square feet gross living area, more or less.

The property will be sold in “as is” condition and subject to conditions, restrictions, easements, encumbrances and agreements of record affecting the subject property, if any, and with no warranty of any kind.

Terms of Sale: A deposit in the form of a cashier’s or certified check, or in such other form as the Successor Trustees may determine, at their sole discretion, for $7,500.00 at the time of sale. If the noteholder is the successful bidder, the deposit requirement is waived. The balance of the purchase price is to be paid within fifteen (15) days of the final ratification of the sale by the Circuit Court for Kent County, Maryland. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE FOR THE PURCHASER. Interest is to be paid on the unpaid purchase price at the rate of four and three hundred seventy five percent (4.375%) as described in the Promissory Note, per an- num, from the date of sale to the date the funds are received in the office of the Successor Trustees, if the property is purchased by an entity other than the noteholder. There will be no abatement of interest due from the purchaser in the event settlement is delayed for any reason. Adjustment of current year real property taxes and other public and/or private charges or assessments, including water/sewer charges, will be made as of the date of sale and thereafter assumed by the purchaser. All other public and/or private charges or assessments, including water/sewer charges, incurred after the sale, and all other costs incidental to settlement to be paid by the purchaser. Cost of any and all documentary stamps, transfer taxes, agricultural transfer taxes, and all settlement charges shall be borne by the purchaser. If the Successor Trustees are unable to convey good and marketable title, the purchaser’s sole remedy in law or equity shall be limited to the refund of the deposit to the purchaser. Upon refund of the deposit, the sale shall be void and of no effect, and the purchaser shall have no further claim against the Successor Trustees. If purchaser defaults under these terms, the deposit shall be forfeited. The Successor Trustees may then resell the property at the risk and cost of the defaulting purchaser. The defaulting purchaser shall not be entitled to any surplus proceeds resulting from said resale even if such surplus results from improvements to the property by said defaulting purchaser. The purchaser shall be responsible for obtaining physical possession of the property. The purchaser at the foreclosure sale shall assume the risk of loss or damage to the property from the date of sale.

WAIVERS: The purchaser waives and releases the Successor Trustees, counsel for the Successor Trustees, the secured party, the Auctioneer and each of their respective agents, successors and assigns from any and all claims the purchaser and/or its successors and assigns may now have or may have in the future relating to (1) any environmental condition, problem or violation affecting all or any portion of the property, (2) any structural or other defects relating to any improvements on the property, and/or (3) any existing or future housing, building, subdivision and/or zoning code or regulation problems or violations.
