Questions on Buying property as-is
My husband and I are looking to buy a piece of property that was once a foreclosure. A third party bought it at auction and is now reselling it. The property and house are being sold as-is. The home is really a tear down and we will be treating it as such. The current owner does not have a survey or any history on the property because they bought it at auction. We want to make sure before we place a bid that: 1) the property does not have an in ground oil tank 2) there are no easements on the property (municipal or otherwise) and 3) there are no outstanding taxes, liens, and encumbrances on the property.
I have no idea where to begin. Can someone direct me? Thanks!!
