Seller and Musser have not made any independent investigation or verification of the information and make no representation as to its accuracy or completeness. In bidding on the Real Estate, Bidder is relying solely on Bidder’s own investigation of the Real Estate and not on any information provided or to be provided by Seller or Musser.
