Winning Bidder(s) who fail to execute and return an executed contract and deliver earnest money by 12:00 PM (noon) the day after the auction are in default and are liable to Seller and AcrePro Indiana, LLC for damages incurred as a result of Winning Bidder(s) default. In the event of Winning Bidder(s) default, Seller may either  (a) declare this contractual agreement canceled, retain Winning Bidder(s) earnest money and resell the tract, via auction or private sale, with Winning Bidder(s) being liable to Seller and AcrePro Indiana, LLC for losses and costs exceeding the amount of retained earnest money or (b) affirm this contractual agreement and if necessary, enforce its specific performance.  For purposes of this section, losses and costs include, but are not limited to holding costs of the property, expenses of both sales, legal fees and incidental damages of Seller and AcrePro Indiana, LLC. Winning Bidder(s) and Sellers agree to indemnify AcrePro Indiana, LLC for any costs, losses, liabilities, or expenses, including attorney fees resulting from AcrePro Indiana, LLC being named as a party to any legal action arising from Winning Bidder(s) or Sellers failing to fulfill any obligations and undertakings as set forth in this contractual agreement.

ACREAGE: All acreages listed are estimates taken from the county assessor’s records, FSA records and/or aerial photos. 

SURVEY: Sellers reserve the right to determine the need for a survey and the type of survey provided. If an existing legal description is adequate for title insurance for the tract, no new survey will be completed. If the existing legal description is not sufficient to obtain title insurance, a survey will be completed, the cost of which will be shared 50/50 by Winning Bidder(s) and Sellers. Sellers will choose the type of survey to be completed and warrant that it will be sufficient to provide an owner’s title insurance policy for the tract. If a survey is completed, the purchase price for the surveyed tract will be adjusted, up or down, to the exact surveyed acres. The price per acre will be the auction price bid for the tract, divided by the tract acreage estimated in the auction brochure. 

YOUR BIDDING IS NOT CONTINGENT UPON FINANCING. BE SURE YOU HAVE FINANCING ARRANGED, IF NECESSARY, AND ARE CAPABLE OF PAYING CASH AT CLOSING. NO CONTINGENCIES: This sale is not contingent on or subject to Winning Bidder’s financing, appraisal, survey or inspections of any kind or any other contingencies as agreed to by bidders at registration prior to bidding.

APPROVAL OF BIDS: Sellers reserve the right to accept or reject any and all bids. 

EVIDENCE OF TITLE: Sellers will provide, at their expense, an owner’s title insurance policy to Winning Bidder(s). Each Winning Bidder will be responsible for the cost of a lender’s title policy, if needed. If the title is not marketable, then the purchase agreement(s) are null and void prior to closing, and escrow agent will return earnest money to Winning Bidder(s).
