The current California residential purchase agreement contains language that all properties are sold in "as is" condition.  There are standard disclosures that are required in most situations.  

As far as surprises -- life is full of them.  Be aware.  Stay informed.  Complete due diligence.  Common sense is helpful too.

No more than any other sale.  It makes sense to get a home inspection prior to any sale

As Michael Jacobs says our CA contracts specify that sales are AS IS. That said, some buyers will ask for  repairs after having an inspection, which are, of course, negotiable with seller who may stick to selling it AS IS. Doing your due diligence as a buyer is essential so you know what you are getting!

"as is' ONLY means that the seller does not want to do repairs. 

It does not mean they will not and it also does not mean they are not willing to reducing the price.

So yes we have had surprises but not because the property is sold "as is"...the surprises come typically with the seller lying about something.

I recently had an experience with that - the seller failed to disclose a structural issue that they had even investigated (used the same structural engineer we did)!!  We got all of the buyers money back for them and found them another property!

Yes, because there are far too many sellers that say "as is" but then they accept repair requests. So "as is" doesn't mean the same thing to everyone.

Not much, since the buyers have to ''investigate'' and inspect regardless of the condition of the property. Most properties in CA are sold ''as is''.

Yes...if something is not disclosed it does not hold up AS-IS. The correct use of the intended is : AS-IS AS-DISCLOSED. After that, all surprises are your own
