Can a seller of a real property exempt themselves from a Wood Pest Addendum through wording in the MLS listing? 3 Answers as of May 20, 2015

When a single family residence (1 - 4 Unit) is advertised in the MLS listing as “Trust Sale” and “Seller cannot afford repairs”, does that mean the seller will not agree to pay for a termite inspection, or for repair of termite damage as a contingency of the sale? Does this wording mean the seller has no obligation to agree to an offer that includes a Wood Pest Addendum?

Advise you consult a probate lawyer with the documentation you are referring to. Probate estates are not obligated to remediate property for purposes of sale.
