The sale of the property is subject to all liens and encumbrances at the time of sale.  It is recommended that all potential buyers seek the advice of an attorney and thoroughly research the property.  

Properties are advertised for sale in at least two newspapers of general circulation within Montgomery County and the Montgomery County Law Reporter thirty days prior to sale.  All properties are sold WITHOUT GUARANTEE OR WARRENTY WHATSOEVER
