CCAR Disclaimer & Disclosure Advisory

As of June 2016, CCAR's Forms Committee created a Disclaimer & Disclosure Advisory in hopes of providing you, our member, with pertinent information to assist in the process of a transaction. In an ongoing effort to provide you with the necessary information, the Forms Committee is currently in the process of creating an Addendum for each city in Contra Costa County; until then, please continue to use the C.A.R. form.

The Disclosure Advisory is also available in zipForm®. If you have any questions contact Heather Schiffman, CCAR Government Affairs Director at [email protected].
 
 
 

ALERT!!! WIRE FRAUD SCAM

There are several scams currently operating wherein hackers obtain information about a pending sale of property and attempt to use e mail or other means to have you transfer funds to the hacker’s account. DO NOT RESPOND TO OR TAKE INSTRUCTIONS FROM E MAILS, TEXTS OR OTHER ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSIONS CONCERNING THE WIRING OR TRANSFERING OF FUNDS WITHOUT CONFIRMING BY TELEPHONE OR OTHER DIRECT COMMUNICATIONS THE PRECISE INSTRUCTIONS WITH SOMEONE YOU CAN POSITIVELY IDENTIFY. NEVER WIRE FUNDS PRIOR TO CALLING THE ESCROW OFFICER AND/OR BROKER AT THE NUMBER PREVIOUSLY PROVIDED TO YOU AND CONFIRMING WIRE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE RESPONDING TO ANY E MAIL OR OTHER ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION. BE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE THE FUNDS ARE GOING BECAUSE, IF YOU DO NOT VERIFY THE LEGITIMACY OF THE INSTRUCTIONS AND WHERE THE FUNDS ARE GOING, YOU MAY LOSE THE FUNDS AND THERE MAY NOT BE INSURANCE OR OTHER MEANS FOR YOU TO OBTAIN RESTITUTION. VERIFY, CHECK AND BE POSITIVELY SURE BEFORE TRANSFERRING FUNDS.
