Seller

Once you have an accepted offer/signed purchase agreement, you will need to contact your association’s management company to order the Common Interest Community (CIC)/association docs for the buyer. There is somewhat of an urgency in ordering these docs as it can take up to 7-10 days to receive the docs from the association and once the buyer has received the docs from you, he/she has a ten-day rescission period to review them. The CIC Docs listed below are the docs that the seller is required to furnish the buyer with.
