yes, and they can back out after the inspection and do not have to say why.

Not usually, there are nonprofit orgs. that will pick up unwanted usable items. Your agent can help with names of those in your area. As far as trash goes. Get some extra yard trash bags and load them up and sit beside the trash bin if allowed in your area. If not, at least sit them by the back door for later trash pickups. No one should have trash left behind when purchasing a home. A realtor will usually assist the client on how to leave the home in a clean and orderly way for the new owners. ... more

Hi Millie,

There are many factors, some that depend on the type of home (Single Family Home, Condo, Townhome). Please feel free to email me from my profile about your homes details.

Thank you,

Did you work with a Realtor? Did you use standard CAR forms? Such a rent back is just like any lease. You are the Tenant and the new owner is your Landlord. The same rules for security deposits apply.
I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.

I wonder how this one turned out? As is or not a seller is never obligated to do any repairs. San Jose is a pretty hot market still and sellers can take advantage of multiple offer buyers out there and not be pushed on repairs as much as other sellers out there. But in a normal market it really comes down to if you want to sell more than they want to buy. If an inspection uncovers something unexpected that needs to be repaired or replaced even a home listed AS IS can still be negotiated. A seller risk the buyer walking and having to start the sales process all over again. Re listing, showings, negotiations, delay of closing, ect. Is it worth pitching in some $$$ to correct the problem and keep the deal going? Maybe or maybe not. It's easy to say "I'm not repairing anything" up front but in reality you listed your home and most likely want to sell as much as someone else wants to buy. $100,000 market value home gets a $100,000 offer. Inspection uncovers a $10,000 repair needed in dry rot/pest work. As a buyer they are now spending $10K more for a home than it is worth. Seller won't budge on their as is mindframe and buyer cancels. Now you have to disclose they pest damage to the next buyer and most likely you won't be getting that $100,000 offer again. And your escrow will be closing 2 or 3 weeks later than you originally expected dealing with a new buyer. ... more

Where is your agent on this?

The purpose of doing an "AS IS" purchase agreement is to avoid having to make repairs. Your price should be based on understanding and accepting there will be anticipated repairs associated with the purchase of the home.

As one would expect, not all buyers completely understand these terms, which should be clarified by their agent.

Good luck,

The simple answer is disclose everything of material value to the house, get someone to sign a contract, set up an escrow, hope that you understand your contract, that it is enforceable, and that the buyer does what they say they will do. Make sure your home meets any safety or other requirements imposed on all sellers.
