Hi Donna, as I state in my answer to your first question here:…

Assuming you are using CAR's "California Residential Purchase Agreement" (revised 11/07):
Para 14B(1) states how long you have to remove your Investigative contingencies; however, Para 14B(3)iii provides for an extension if Common Interest (CI) disclosures have not been made in the timeline afforded by 14B(1), in which case you have 5 days AFTER you receive these disclosures to remove your Inspection contingencies.

Best, Steve

If you did not use the CAR form, California State law gives you 3 days. It is good to know the CAR Deposit reciept gives you 5 thank you Steve for the good information.

Hi Donna, Having answered your previous questions, I am wondering what caused you to post two similiar but different quesitons. Did the CC&r's show up after you posted the other questions?

I agree with Barry. Consult your contract together with your agent.

Hi Donna,

Item 14 B (3) on page 4 of the RPA states that you have 5 days to review these disclosures (unless otherwise agreed to in writing). Please consult with a real estate attorney or the broker representing you.
