Sales Agreement Review ot Creation

All real estate transactions must be legally documented with a sales agreement. That agreement is then recorded with the assessor’s office or court system to ensure it can be found by others interested in determining the rightful owner of a property. A sales agreement is the legally binding document that transfers deed or title from one individual to another. Sales agreements will detail the results of any and all negotiations, and it will even include such details as what exactly comes with the property. For example, when you buy that perfect house, will the chandelier in the hall come with it, or will the seller remove it and take it with them? Will the buyer or the seller pay for the closing costs? If the inspector found termite damage in the garage, will the seller make repairs or does the buyer have to take possession of the property as is? All these questions and more have to be answered. And if those answers aren’t included in the sales agreement, a he said/she said battle may ensue. Prevent these arguments from becoming huge headaches. Hire a top attorney for real estate transactions to help avoid any pitfalls.
