Similarly, in the case of a relatively simple residential real estate transaction, problems may arise, when the taker takes over the drafting of such a contract, suspending the licensee to liability. For example, if a licensee attempts to establish such a contract before receiving the results of a title search, a sales contract may be entered into with the seller if the property is actually legally owned by another person or company. In this case, the seller must eventually transfer the property in his name to comply with Section 6 of the Property Rights Act (a costly transaction including part of a property transfer tax) or submit to the possibility that the buyer may legally refuse the completion if it is presented with a transfer from the seller, as described in the contract, and not with the registered owner, as shown on the title. Once all amendments to the agreement have been made and both parties agree, some jurisdictions may also require that the agreement be authenticated or certified to be valid. Buyers and occupants of real estate are increasingly aware of the health, safety and environmental aspects of the real estate they wish to purchase and/or occupy. The legislation reflects these concerns and mandates, which are becoming increasingly stringent in terms of security, increased information, and broader responsibilities and responsibilities in these areas. Current and former buyers, sellers and owners will be associated with this responsibility and their potential liability. If the buyer attempts to evade the contract by claiming, for example, that a subject clause is so subjective that there is legally only a permanent offer until an object is withdrawn, the seller is much more able to negotiate a settlement of the dispute if the original agreement contains a substantial and fiduciary down payment. When the Vancouver hotel market was very hot in 2018, where several offers were the norm, I sometimes recommend that the buyer increase the down payment to 10% of the purchase price. By increasing the amount of the deposit, the offer will be more advantageous to the seller than other offers with the same offer price. This increases the likelihood that the seller will accept the buyer`s offer.
Licensees are therefore encouraged to advise their clients to advise themselves independently and/or to enter into a sales and sales contract before the client signs a list contract. If someone says, “I want the water tested,” a licensee should be clear about the tests the customer wants to do on the water and a condition should be included in the purchase offer to meet those standards to the buyer`s satisfaction. The test for mortgage approval may be at a lower level than is satisfactory to the buyer`s personal needs in terms of quantity and water quality. The buyer must determine the quality and quantity of the water to meet their personal needs, and then request water tests to determine if the water meets these standards. The standard form contract assumes that a party will withdraw a subject clause by declaring it fulfilled or renouncing it. If the requirements for a condition are met, we say it is met. Suppose, for example, that a contract to purchase a residential property includes the following item clause in this manual: I have no idea, who has drafted these questions, but they are clearly drawn in a way that offers more protection to a seller than to a buyer and in a way that offers a seller a touch of righteousness that could not be earned on all occasions, even if the precaution line is given: “Buyers are invited to carefully examine the property and, on demand, have the property checked by a control service of their choice.”
