Auction Terms & Conditions Online Only Bidding Auction, 20 Goddard Road, Cranston, RI TERMS AND CONDITIONS 1. All right, title and interest conveyed by the State will be sold subject to the terms and conditions in the published notice of sale and those hereinafter set. 2. A deposit of $100,000.00 (bank or certified check) is required in order to bid on this property. An additional deposit to total 5% (by bank or certified check) of sale price required by the highest bidder is required within 48 hours of the conclusion of the bidding. If the required deposit is not so made, the property may, at the discretion of the auctioneer, be immediately resold, upon the same terms and conditions, without further notice, but such resale shall not release the defaulting purchaser from liability for breach of contract. 3. The balance of the purchase price shall be paid by bank or certified check or wire transfer payable to the “General Treasurer – State of Rhode Island” within ninety (90) days from the “Effective Date” of the Purchase and Sale Contract or on a date that is mutually agreed upon by the successful bidder and the State of Rhode Island. The “Effective Date” of the Purchase and Sale contract shall be the date when it receives approval and signatures of the State Properties Committee which we are projecting will be the November 10, 2020 meeting. 4. Starting Bid must equal or exceed Two Million Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars ($2,900,000). 5. Sale of the Property shall be contingent upon the following special conditions: a) The Buyer shall have sixty (60) days from the Effective Date of this Purchase and Sale Contract (the “Inspection Period”) to satisfy itself as to the acceptability and suitability of the Property for purchase, including making the inspections set forth in Sub-section (b), below. In the event that Buyer, in its sole and absolute discretion is not satisfied with the results of either the Inspection Period Tests, as defined below, conducted during the Inspection Period including but not limited to, either the “Phase I” hazardous waste site assessment or condition of the Seller’s title to the Property, then Buyer shall notify Seller in writing on or before the expiration of the Inspection Period of its dissatisfaction, at which time this Purchase and Sale Contract shall be considered null and void and of no further force and effect and the Deposit shall be promptly returned to Buyer. b) During the Inspection Period, Buyer shall have the right to conduct any and all necessary tests, studies and examinations of the Property including, but not limited to, examination of the title to the Property and a “Phase I” hazardous waste site assessment and such other non- invasive analyses, tests and engineering studies as Buyer may deem desirable. (collectively the “Inspection Period Tests”) If: (a) Buyer notifies Seller prior to the expiration of the Inspection Period, that Buyer is not in its sole and absolute discretion, satisfied with the results of the Inspection Period Tests including but not limited to Seller’s title to the Property, or not able to obtain an ALTA owner’s policy at standard rates at the Closing insuring good and marketable title to the Property without exception (except as agreed to in writing by Buyer) or the results of any “Phase I” hazardous waste site assessment, then Buyer may terminate this Purchase and Sale Contract by written notice to Seller, in which event the Deposit shall be returned to Buyer and this Purchase and Sale Contract shall become null, void and of no further force or effect; provided, however, that Buyer shall give Seller timely notice of any title defects and the results of any “Phase I” hazardous waste site assessment, and, further, shall give Seller, at Seller’s sole discretion, a reasonable opportunity to cure any such title defect or to address any objectionable condition on the Property discovered as a result of the aforementioned “Phase I” environmental site assessment. c) With prior notice to Seller, Buyer may enter upon the Property at reasonable times for the purpose of conducting the Inspection Period Tests. Buyer shall be responsible for and will indemnify, save harmless and defend Seller against and from any and all claims and suits for, and any and all liability, loss or expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising from or incidental to or in connection with bodily injury, including death, personal injuries to or damage to or loss of property of Buyer or its agents, servants, or employees, consultants, or any other person claiming by or through Buyer which said damage, loss or injury or death shall arise in any manner from the acts or omissions of Buyer, its employees, agents, servants, employees, or consultants while performing the Inspection Period Tests on the Property, directly or indirectly, out of, or incidental to, or in connection with the Inspection Period Tests. 6. At the time of closing, the steam heat lines serving the Property from the Pastore Government complex will be severed at the property line. 7. At the time of closing, a Bargain and Sale deed, in usual form, without covenants of warranty, will be delivered to the successful bidder on receipt of the full balance of the purchase price. If the purchaser shall fail to tender the balance of said purchase price on the closing date, the State of Rhode Island, at its option, may resell the property to the next highest bidder at the original sale who shall be able to comply with the terms of the sale without notice to the purchaser and without previously tendering a deed to the purchaser. Such resale shall not, however, release the defaulting purchaser from liability for breach of contract, and in case of such default the State of Rhode Island shall retain said deposit, whether or not the property is resold, without prejudice to any right to recover further damages or to pursue any legal or equitable remedy accruing by reason of such default. 8.
