No partial release will be permitted. The Purchaser shall remove the property at his/her expense.

21. TITLE:
Buyers are highly encouraged to process title for their purchases within 48 hours of the auction in order to identify potential issues. All items are being sold free and clear of liens and encumbrances. Sale documentation will be provided in accordance with the corresponding Government/legal process involved (seizure, forfeiture, impoundment, repossession, etc.). Sale documentation meets local and state laws but RRE does not warrant or guarantee that the provided sale documents will be sufficient in and of themselves to obtain all necessary titles, registration, or licenses throughout the United States or for the process of exporting out of the United States.
22. DEFAULTS:
The failure to make required deposit or final payments and/or comply with the time frames specified in the sales terms and conditions for removal of property/merchandise shall be deemed forfeiture of any rights, title, and interest the Purchaser may have acquired. The title of such property/merchandise may revert back to the Government/seller without further notice to the Purchaser and will result in any monies paid being forfeited. The transaction will be null and void as to the Purchaser. The property/merchandise will be processed for resale at the next available auction.
23. REQUIREMENTS TO COMPLY WITH APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS:
It is the Purchaser’s responsibility to ascertain and comply with all applicable Federal, State, local, international and multi-jurisdictional laws, ordinances and regulations pertaining to the registration, licensing, handling, possession, transportation, transfer, export, processing, manufacture, sale, use, or disposal of the property being purchased at the auction.
The Purchaser or user of this property is not excused from any violation of such laws or regulations either because the Government is a party to this sale or has had any interest in the property at any time.
