I have a property with several known issues, including a leaky roof, a cracked and leaking pool, electrical service to the house that violates code, outbuildings that were built w/o permits and are not built to code, a setback violation (building too close to property line), and several appliances and systems that don't work. Am I required to disclose this information in the case of an auction sale? Does the "as is" nature of an auction exempt me from CA disclosure laws and any liability for not disclosing known flaws or misrepresenting things as fine when they're not?Thanks - neither situation is the case here. My (soon to be ex-) wife just wants to sell the property via a non-foreclosure, non-eBay real estate auction because she believes CA disclosure laws don't apply to auction sales, and the "as is" nature of auction sales exempts the seller from any liability for not disclosing known issues. Is that correct, or do the disclosure laws apply? One more question while I'm on a roll. She also maintains that she can force the property to be sold. I believe that she can demand I pay her 1/2 of FMV if I want the property, but not that it be sold. Which is it? Thanks again.
