Montana Association Of Realtors Buy Sell Agreement
That said, reasonable minds can and do differ on this topic. For that reason it is best to add language to a buy-sell agreement if a buyer wants to acquire, or a seller wants to retain, TV wall mounts.
Generally speaking, the Montana Residential Landlord Tenant Act (the MRLTA) does not apply to situations in which the buyer is renting the property from the seller prior to closing and pursuant to a contract whereby the buyer will buy the property from the seller. However, it is possible that the MRLTA could apply if the parties contractually agree to its application through a rental agreement. If a rental agreement exists, the terms of the relationship between the parties is likely dictated by that contract and the parties and their agents should refer to that contract concerning their respective rights and obligations.
Information contained in the Multiple Listing Service is an advertisement. The terms and conditions set forth therein, including the price, are not binding on the seller. Therefore, if there was personal property that was mentioned in the MLS as potentially transferring with the property but that personal property was not specifically provided for in the buy-sell agreement, it is unlikely that the personal property is part of the contract between the buyer and the seller.
No. A listing agent is prohibited from disclosing the name of a person making an offer or the amount or terms of that offer. However, there are not similar obligations imposed upon the seller. A seller is able to disclose the terms of any other offer and the name of the offeror if the seller desires to do so. In fact, the Code of Ethics requires buyer agents, when entering into a buyer broker agreement, to advise potential clients that their offer may not be treated as confidential by the seller.
Probably not. All MAR listing agreements state that a seller agent is entitled to compensation upon procuring a buyer ready and willing to purchase the property listed for sale by the seller agent. So long as the procurement of a buyer occurs when the listing agreement is in effect it does not matter if the closing and, therefore, the date upon which payment is made is after expiration of the listing agreement. While it is a good idea to attempt to obtain an extension of the listing until the closing date, if a seller refuses to execute such an extension it should not affect the right to compensation payable after expiration of the listing contract.
One of the remedies available to buyers and sellers pursuant to the buy-sell agreement is specific performance. In the event that either party intends to pursue this remedy, an agent should not attempt to replace property back on the market. If, however, specific performance is not a remedy which has been requested by either party, and no lis pendens has been filed, a seller is free to market the property as the dispute merely involves the disbursement of earnest money.
However, to the extent, the buyer and the seller have agreed that earnest money is required, but the buyer has not deposited that earnest money within the applicable deadline, language in all buy-sell agreement permits (but does not require) the seller to terminate the agreement.
Concerning the timing of the lead-based paint disclosure and documents, it is a literal violation of federal law for the seller to provide the disclosure and applicable documents after accepting an offer from a buyer. However, the EPA and HUD have agreed that this practice is acceptable if a buyer contractually has an unconditional right to unilaterally cancel the agreement for 3 days after the lead disclosures are delivered or 5 days after the disclosures are mailed. The MAR Residential and Farm & Ranch Buy-Sell agreements have language stating that a buyer has the unconditional right to cancel the agreement (without risk of loss or other adverse effects) within three (3) days after electronic or hand delivery of the lead-based paint documents, or five (5) days after deposit of the lead-based paint documents in the mail.
Thus, to meet the requirement of the first subsection, the broker should disclose to a prospective buyer that this kind of information is available and where this information is located. The sources of such information include Federal Probation Department, Montana Department of Justice, and local county sheriff's offices. This obligation is covered by language that is in all MAR buy-sell agreements. To meet the requirements of the second subsection, if the broker has actual knowledge of the presence of a registered sexual or violent offender that pertains to the property, that information must be disclosed to the prospective buyer as well.
Probably not. Although the binding effect of a backup offer is not as strong as a primary offer, only the buyer has the contractual right to terminate. Specifically, the MAR Back-Up Offer Addendum expressly provides that until the buyer has received written notice that the buyer in backup position is now in primary position, the buyer may cancel or terminate the buy-sell agreement. However, there is no corresponding right in favor of the seller.
Probably not. The Montana Supreme Court addressed this issue in a case that arose in the case of Thorton v. Songstad. In that case, four individuals, along with a corporate trustee were the vested owners of a particular piece of property. The four individuals signed an agreement to sell the property, but the corporate trustee did not sign the agreement. The buyer brought a claim seeking specific performance of the agreement. In discussing the situation, the Montana Supreme Court noted that the agreement anticipated that 100% ownership of the property was to be sold. Absent the signature of 100% of the owners, evidencing their consent to the sale contract, the Court held that no valid contract had been entered. As a result, the buyer's specific performance action was dismissed.
If a buyer is in breach of a buy-sell agreement the seller has the remedies set forth in the buy-sell agreement, including, without limitation, retention of the earnest money, a suit for specific performance or a suit for damages. While the seller has the option of suing for specific performance, that remedy might be difficult to obtain if monetary damages can adequately compensate the seller.
Probably. Unless the assignee buyer is simply an entity owned by all of the assignor buyers who assigned the buyer rights under the buy-sell agreement, the new assignee should be review and sign a relationship disclosure form. The buyer agent should also have the assignee buyer sign a new buyer broker agreement.

If the buyer breaches the purchase agreement by refusing to purchase the real estate from the seller, the seller generally maintains three courses of action: (1) the seller may require the buyer to specifically perform the purchase agreement by buying the real estate from the seller, but this remedy is only available under rare circumstances; (2) the seller may seek damages for the breach of the purchase agreement; or (3) the seller may cancel the purchase agreement by voluntary agreement, by statutory cancellation or by judicial cancellation.
The title insurance company receives an order for insurance on a particular property listed in the buy/sell agreement. Then, a title officer conducts a search of the documents recorded in public record pertaining to the property. Next, a preliminary report is issued to the parties involved in the transaction that lists the exceptions to coverage of the property.
A Maryland real estate contract, often referred to as a residential purchase and sale agreement, is a contract that is negotiated between a buyer and a seller for the purchase of real estate. Real estate contracts are most commonly used when purchasing an existing residential property, but can also be used for land, commercial properties, and investment properties.
In Maryland, most realtors will use a specific form for the real estate contract called the Maryland Association of Realtors Purchase Agreement. This form streamlines the buying and selling process and ensures that all necessary elements of a real estate contract are addressed.
The contract stipulates the amount of the loan, the interest rate, and what happens if you fall behind on property taxes or payments. You and the seller can negotiate the terms of the agreement, including the interest rate on the loan.
For many people, purchasing a home is a significant investment on emotional and financial levels. The process can be complex, involving a lengthy search for homes in a desired location, securing financing from a lender, and devising a real estate purchase and sale agreement. Some states require an attorney to assist with a real estate transaction. Even if an attorney is not required, a buyer and a seller each may want to retain legal counsel to protect their interests.
The purchase and sale agreement forms the core of a real estate transaction. Among other things, it provides the financial terms of the transaction, identifies the people and the property involved, sets any time requirements for completing the process, and outlines contingencies. These are conditions that must be met before the transaction may be completed. Common contingencies may include getting a loan or completing a home inspection. Once contingencies have been resolved, and the other terms of the agreement have been met, the transaction can proceed to the closing. At a real estate closing, the seller transfers ownership of the property to the buyer, who will sign their loan documents and provide the down payment to the seller.
In general, a seller in an Illinois real estate transaction must inform a buyer in writing about any material defects of which they are aware. A material defect could relate to the value of the property or the health and safety of its occupants. Issues may include environmental hazards, boundary disputes, municipal violations, structural defects, or flood risks. Disclosures are not required for a property owner who never occupied the property or had the responsibility to manage it. Even if the buyer purchases the property as is, or if the buyer knows about defects, the disclosure requirement cannot be waived through mutual agreement. A seller must make disclosures even for tear-down properties, unless a property is uninhabitable as a home. 59ce067264
