The amount of the initial deposit is specified in the SPA on the Property Page for each Property. Unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Documents, the initial deposit must be received within 24 hours after Winning Buyer is notified of acceptance of its bid and receives wire instructions, time being of the essence. If the initial deposit is not timely received, Receivership-Auctions.com or Seller may declare Winning Buyer to be in default of these Terms and Seller may reject Winning Buyer’s Offer or seek the other remedies described above. Payment of the remaining portion of the purchase price must be made by wire transfer to the closing agent as specified in the SPA. A winning bidder my request the Recievership-Auctions.com to allow a period of time to secure financing. However, purchases are cash purchases and under no circumstances are the Winning bidders’ obligations contingent on financing. Absent separate written agreement for a delay to secure financing all payments must be made pursuant to the SPA in the times specified therein.
Proof of Funds and Additional Information. Receivership-Auctions.com may require Participants to provide proof of readily available funds and/or additional information at any time. Participant must respond to such inquiries within one business day, time being of the essence.

Winning Buyers wanting to take title in the name of an entity (not as an individual) may be required to provide entity formation documents and resolutions authorizing the purchase within the timeframe specified by Receivership-Auctions.com (which may be before or after the Event, in Receivership-Auctions.com sole discretion). Seller and/or the escrow/closing agent may require additional documentation prior to closing.
Buyer’s Fee. If the Property Page for a Property states that a Buyer’s Premium or transaction fee (“Buyer’s Fee”) applies to the sale, then Winning Buyer will be required to pay the Buyer’s Premium in addition to Winning Buyer’s Offer amount at closing. Unless otherwise specified for a particular Property, the Buyer’s Fee will be added to Winning Buyer’s Offer amount to establish the total purchase price payable by Winning Buyer. It will be included in the purchase price in the SPA forwarded to the Winning Bidder.
Receivership Transactions. Each property will be sold by Burton W. Wiand as Receiver appointed in the EquiAlt Receivership. The transfer of these properties requires approval of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. Upon submission of the signed Sales Procedures Agreement by a successful bidder, the Receiver will promptly apply to the Court for approval of the transaction. This process is generally efficient and can be promptly completed. The PSA and related documents will be immediately forwarded to the closing agent. Should the Court reject a transaction which in the Receiver’s experience is unlikely the winning bidder will be refunded all funds deposited as per the terms of the SPA. Purchaser will receive title through a Receiver’s Deed authorized by Court Order directing that the property is transferred free and clear of any liens or encumbrances.
Any disputes relating to the auction or any transaction shall be resolved by summary proceeding without a jury before the United States District Court overseeing the EquAlt Receivership.
