I believe you are referring to the Homeowners' Assistance Program, through the army; is this correct?
If so, I believe your Real Estate Agent, or most in Las Vegas, are not familiar with this program, beacuase to my knowledge it does not have any affect in the Las Vegas area.
If you search to find HAP Homes, you wind up here:
The following is a list of completed HAP's since 1988:
Furthermore, your due diligence starts as it is outlined in your Accepted Contract; straight from GLVARâ€™s Residential Purchase Agreement, Rev. 06/09:
12. BUYER'S DUE DILIGENCE:
A. DUE DILIGENCE PERIOD: Buyer shall have [Insert] calendar days from Acceptance to complete Buyer's Due Diligence. Buyer shall ensure that all inspections and certifications are initiated in a timely manner as to complete the Due Diligence in the time outlined herein. (If utilities are not supplied by the deadline referenced herein or if the disclosures are not delivered to Buyer by the deadline referenced herein, then Buyer's Due Diligence Period will be extended by the same number of calendar days that Seller delayed supplying the utilities or delivering the disclosures, whichever is longer.) During this period Buyer shall have the exclusive right at Buyer's discretion to cancel this Agreement. In the event of such cancellation, unless otherwise agreed herein, the EMD will be refunded to Buyer. If Buyer provides Seller with notice of objections, the Due Diligence Period will be extended by the same number of calendar days that it takes Seller to respond in writing to Buyer's objections. If Buyer fails to cancel this Agreement within the Due Diligence Period (as it may be extended), Buyer will be deemed to have waived the right to cancel under this section.
B. PROPERTY INSPECTION/CONDITION: During the Due Diligence Period, Buyer shall take such
action as Buyer deems necessary to determine whether the Property is satisfactory to Buyer including, but not limited to, whether the Property is insurable to Buyer's satisfaction, whether there are unsatisfactory conditions surrounding or otherwise affecting the Property (such as location of flood zones, airport noise, noxious fumes or odors, environmental substances or hazards, whether the Property is properly zoned, locality to freeways, railroads, places of worship, schools, etc.) or any other concerns Buyer may have related to the Property. During such Period, Buyer shall have the right to have non-destructive inspections of all structural, roofing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, heating/air conditioning, water/well/septic, pool/spa, survey, square footage, and any other property or systems, through licensed and bonded contractors or other qualified professionals. Seller agrees to provide reasonable access to the Property to Buyer and Buyer's inspectors. Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold Seller harmless with respect to any injuries suffered by Buyer or third parties present at Buyer's request while on Seller's Property conducting such inspections, tests or walk-throughs. Buyer's indemnity shall not apply to any injuries suffered by Buyer or third parties present at Buyer's request that are the result of an intentional tort, gross negligence or any misconduct or omission by Seller, Seller's Agent or other third parties on the Property. Buyer is advised to consult with appropriate professionals regarding neighborhood or Property conditions, including but not limited to: schools; proximity and adequacy of law enforcement; proximity to commercial, industrial, or agricultural activities; crime statistics; fire protection; other governmental services; existing and proposed transportation; construction and development; noise or odor from any source; and other nuisances, hazards or circumstances. If Buyer cancels this Agreement due to a specific inspection report, Buyer shall provide Seller at the time of cancellation with a copy of the report containing the name, address, and telephone number of the inspector.
