Is there a survey and/or architectural drawings available? What type of license is it? Are there any known restrictions or violations? Thanks John Boyle

I am licensed real estate broker how would I be protected if my client close the deal? Let me know. Thanks bina

Bina, there is no broker fee being paid in this sale. My suggestion is to get your commission from your buyer. Mike

John, we do not have any drawings or survey. The license is a " C" Consumption License known as a 33 ( for bars and restaurants). We have been informed by the Bankruptcy Trustee that there are no violations on this license. You can, however call the State ABC or the Town of Fanwood to double check on violations. Mike

Is the name "Sun Tavern" included in the auction?
