Agreement To Sell Real Estate


Asked on Oct 29, 2023

Acceptance of residential Real Estate Offer in Pennsylvania

Selling Agent told our Buyers Agent (i am buyer) that there was another buyer, that they would do highest & best / Best and Final offers by Sat NOON time. We provided our best and final offer by Sat at NOON. Sunday approx. 3PM the sellers agent told our buyers agent that the sellers have selected your buyers offer, it was due to removing the inspection contingency and being within 5K of the other bidder, we were very excited. We do not have a conter-signed PA real estate contract, we have an email note from the seller's agent representing the seller to our buyers agent indicating the the seller has accepted your buyers offer. My Question: the acceptance was in writing (email) and signed by sender of email - Sellers agent, specifically indicating they accepted our offer which was signed and in writing. Subsequently the sellers agent indicated when they did not sign our offer, that since they had not signed and had not signed the specific contract, that they were accepting a 2nd offer at a higher price. Any hope of wining based on the acceptance of our offer was first, it was in writing (email) and signed by sellers agent?

Answered Nov 7, 2023

The agent’s email will not be enough. You will need the agreement signed by the sellers, as they are the contracting party.

Real Estate Purchase Agreement


Asked on Jun 19, 2022


I am on a deed with my brother. He took a loan out on the home and fallen behind on payments. What can I do to protect my half of the deed and keep from losing our home.

Jason Q.

Answered Jul 8, 2022

A joint owner of real estate can generally encumber the property, such as by mortgaging their interest, without permission of the other joint owner. If your brother falls behind on payments, the lender could foreclose on his interest in the property. They could then probably force a sale of the property in an action for partition. To prevent this, one option would be to pay off or assume the loan and buy out your brother's interest in the real estate. Since he is behind on his loan, you could probably drive a pretty hard bargain. If you do nothing, the lender could eventually take your brother's interest in the property and force a sale.

Mortgage Loan Agreement


Asked on Feb 28, 2022

If I am separating with someone I co-own a house with, not married, are there any repercussions to me moving out of the house before we have a signed agreement?

I bought a house with my boyfriend, we are now breaking up. We built the house and moved in in October 2022. It's too soon to sell and make money off of it. I am willing to move out, but I want the cash that I initially put into the house during settlement. We are attempting to come up with an agreement, which I would like an attorney to review before I sign.

Ryan W.

Answered Mar 1, 2022

Whether there are any repercussions depends upon the circumstances surrounding your purchase. For example, whether or not a mortgage exists can affect the situation. If you are on the mortgage, it would not matter what agreement you sign with your boyfriend, you are still on the hook for the mortgage unless you can negotiate with the lender to remove yourself from the mortgage. It may require your boyfriend to refinance. You are certainly making the right move by having an attorney review any agreement between you and your boyfriend. You just need to consider the third-party lender and how that may also affect you.

Purchase And Sale Agreement


Asked on Sep 6, 2023

Purchase and sale agreement and inspections?

I am in the process of buying a home, and I recently received a Purchase and Sale Agreement from the seller. I'm concerned about the inspection contingency in the agreement, because I'm not sure if it protects me as a buyer if there are any issues with the home. I want to make sure my interests are fully protected in the agreement, so I'm looking for legal advice on how to properly interpret and negotiate the inspection contingency.

Linda W.

Answered Sep 19, 2023

It is recommended that you seek the assistance of an attorney before signing any contract. In addition, it is recommended that you sign an as-is contract, because the inspection period provides you the opportunity to terminate the contract for any reason, if you are not satisfied with the results of the inspection. But you must terminate within a timely period as set forth in the contract.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
