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.

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.
