Lease To Purchase Option Agreement

Tennessee

Asked on Jun 15, 2022

If you're doing a rent to own on a house and the owner dies, can the executor or heirs kick you out of the house, raise the monthly price, or raise the amount of the house or do they have to honor the contract in it's entirety? In Tennessee

I have been renting to own for a few years now. We pay so much a month and have put additional money in the house fixing the house up. We have a certain price that we are paying for the house. The owner died yesterday, and the sister/executor of the will called me this morning saying he died and they were coming to look at the house. Said they were probably going to raise the monthly payment and probably going to raise the price of the house. I'm scared they are either going to kick me out or not let me do rent to own or raise the price. She also said I owed rent for this month which I have already paid!

Rebecca R.

Answered Jun 17, 2022

If your rent-to-own contract is in writing then the contract should be binding on the owner's estate, although there may be some practical challenges in enforcing it. If your contract is not in writing you will have several practical proof problems to overcome, and you may have trouble overcoming the executor's challenges to the contract. As a tenant in possession you may have additional rights to recover investments in the house, or maintain your current amount of rent. As with the purchase option, your rights may depend on the language of your written agreement.

Purchase And Sale Agreement

Washington

Asked on Sep 9, 2023

Earnest money in a purchase and sale agreement?

I am in the process of buying a house and have been presented with a purchase and sale agreement. I am confused about the earnest money portion of the agreement and would like to understand what it means and how it will affect the transaction. I am particularly interested in knowing what happens to the earnest money if either party decides to back out of the agreement.

Merry A.

Answered Sep 12, 2023

Good morning. I am a WA State attorney, and I have reviewed numerous purchase and sale agreements (PSA), and have bought and sold numerous pieces of property in WA and CO. You are wise to ask this question. Since you are the buyer, normally your buyer's real estate agent would prepare the PSA for you to use, after discussing with you. Since you said a PSA "was presented to you" I"m wondering whether you are buying a new home from a building contractor. In any event, the purpose to an earnest money payment is to hold the home for you and let the seller know you are interested. In most cases, however, the seller can keep your whole earnest money payment if you back out of a purchase for reasons that are not protected in the PSA. For example, if you write your offer contingent on your subjective approval of an inspection report, or write your offer contingent on obtaining financing at terms you approve of, either one of these terms can get you out of the contract and also have your earnest money returned to you. There should be language in the PSA that clearly states what happens to the earnest money and how much earnest money you are providing. I hope that that is helpful. If you continue to have questions, I urge you to have an attorney review any and all documents, including those for loans, prior to signing anything.

Purchase And Sale Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Sep 6, 2023

Title issues in a purchase and sale agreement?

I am in the process of buying a piece of property, and I am currently in the middle of negotiating the purchase and sale agreement. I am concerned about potential title issues that may arise due to the history of the property, as I am not sure if the seller has clear title to the property. I would like to know what I should look out for in the agreement to ensure that I am protected from any potential title issues.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 17, 2023

A typical purchase and sale agreement for real property (commonly called an "Offer to Purchase and Contract" in North Carolina) includes due diligence. Due diligence is the buyer's opportunity to investigate the property. During the due diligence period, the buyer will usually have the property inspected. However, the buyer may also conduct a title search on the property. Additionally, a purchase and sale agreement might specify that the deal is contingent upon the seller being able to deliver clear title to the property. Anyone who is considering entering into a purchase and sale agreement for real property should also consider at least having an attorney review the agreement. It probably would not hurt to have attorney representation throughout the transaction.

Commercial Lease

Ohio

Asked on Apr 20, 2023

How is the lease renewed at the end of the lease term?

I am a small business owner who recently signed a three-year commercial lease for my business. I am looking to understand the process of renewing the lease at the end of the three-year term. I am interested in learning more about the process, the timeline, and what I need to do to ensure that I can continue to operate my business at this location.

Paul S.

Answered Apr 21, 2023

If your lease has a renewal option, then you renew by following that process, which involves giving notice during the specified time frame. If you did not include a renewal option in your lease, then you'll need to contact the landlord 6-12 months before the end of the term, and inform the landlord that you want to renew the lease. Then you'll have to negotiate the terms with the landlord.

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.
