Upon the close of all escrows, each co-owner will receive a co-ownership interest in their designated Vivos shelter, closest to their home area. This interest and its accompanying membership in Vivos, is fully transferable, can be sold at any time, willed to heirs, or transferred as a gift to anyone, subject only to the newly designated member's approval by the Vivos Risk Management Team.
Vivos is not a timeshare that allows for a revolving periodic use by its co-owners, nor a residential purpose property. Each co-owner receives an ownership interest of the specific Vivos shelter complex they purchase. The interest includes the real property (improvements above and below ground), and all personal property provided with the turnkey shelter (furniture, fixtures, equipment, food, clothing, supplies, water, fuel, etc).
All buyer funds remain in escrow until Vivos completes construction and delivers each respective turnkey shelter complex. In respect of all "blue sky" laws, at no time in the purchase process is the buyer's purchase money at risk. Escrows shall close concurrently for all buyers purchasing a single Vivos shelter. Full details are provided in the purchase and sale agreements, including the Vivos Owners’ Association Bylaws, Rules & Regulations, Code of Conduct, Operating Agreements, Pro forma Budgets, Bill of Sale for all personal property, and all details regarding the property and shelter. Certain conditions are subject to change and shall be provided to actual buyers in the purchase process.

for co-ownership. Selected members
holding a reservation, open escrow
for the purchase of their
ownership interest of the

completes the construction, equipping, outfitting
and turnkey provisioning of each shelter facility. Once
completed, ownership of each facility is turned over to the respective Vivos Owners'
Association. Each Vivos Owners' Association then
controls the operations, security and maintenance
of their facility, with oversight from the Vivos
Group. The Operating Rules and Regulations established by Vivos, guide the
ongoing operations of the facilities, prior to and
during any shelter habitation.

There are many scenarios that could cause a
total collapse of our social structure,
regionally, nationally, or globally. Pick your
favorite, but let’s assume for this scenario
it is the result of an electro-magnetic pulse
(EMP). Such a burst, typically caused by a
high altitude nuclear device explosion, but
also possible from a mega-solar flare, could
permanently disrupt all electrical services
within the radius of the pulse, thousands of
miles and even globally. There will be no
power grid, no transportation systems, no
finance systems, no communications, nothing.
Our modern world would grind to a halt, with
no food supply, water, sewage, fuel, or
anything dependent on power to produce and
deliver. Even modern cars and trucks would be
permanently disabled with their complex
Within days society would begin to
disintegrate, as evidenced by the aftermath in
Haiti. At first, people would wait for
government assistance, which may come, but
will quickly run out. Then, would come the
looting, rioting and burning, followed by
begging, bartering, gangs, and people banding
together to protect and help each other. When
their supplies run out, they too will turn on
each other for survival.
Hiding out in your urban home, or small town
farm, won’t last long. People will find you
as they scavenge to survive, taking anything
and everything you have that they need.
Defending yourself and your family may lead to
death. Human nature will take over and people
will become predator hunters, killing all wild
animals, until all sources of food run out,
then with no other choice for survival, they
likely will become cannibals. There will be no
safe place for you and your family to hide,
store food and supplies.
Vivos will be a safe haven, complete with all
food, supplies and security for the survival
and protection of its members for up to one
year. Hopefully, by then society will have
cooled down, and life, albeit with less
population, may safely restart.
A tremendous benefit to shelters of the Vivos scale is the opportunity for a true community of people with diverse skills and abilities, versus the long-term lonely existence of a small family, or group in a private backyard shelter.
