1. INSPECTION: It is extremely difficult to fully describe properties over the telephone or internet. Therefore, we strongly urge each Tenant(s) to personally inspect a property before placing a deposit. Tenant(s) acknowledges that they have personally inspected the property, and accept it in “as is” condition, or if they have not inspected the property, they waive the right to withhold rent for any alleged deficiency in the premises or to otherwise claim that the property has been misrepresented to them either by Owner or Agent. Both Tenant(s) and Owner agree that to the best of their knowledge and belief the premises comply with the statutes, rules and regulations of government authorities. Tenant(s) agrees that the premises are in good, sound and reliable condition. If Tenant(s) is not personally acquainted with the condition of the premises, Tenant(s) will immediately make an inspection thereof upon taking occupancy and will immediately notify Agent in writing if they determine any weaknesses that may result in injury to them, their family and guest(s). Tenant(s) further agrees to indemnify Coldwell Banker Premier, Agent/and or/Owner for any injuries, accidental or otherwise, that may be incurred or suffered upon the premise for any cause whatsoever during the term of this lease.
