I agree strongly about  "due diligence" and asking the right  
questions.  On that score, what should the "quick checklist for  
buyers" include?

As Joe and Sharon have both pointed out, no question can really  
protect you from the truly unscrupulous seller. We can, on that  
score, build another list of tell-tale signs to look for.

Other sellers insist on maintaining their ignorance. And there's no  
help for that either - except to know when it's time to move on.
