What does it mean if there is an Voetstoots clause in my Offer to Purchase?

If a property is sold “voetstoots” it means the property is sold as it stands. The seller cannot be held liable for any defects in the property once it is sold, unless he fraudulently hid the existence of the defect from the purchaser. The position is different if the Consumer protection act applies to the sale.
