In Pennsylvania, sellers are required to enter into a real estate sale contract and are asked to complete the next disclosure statement for an agreement as legally binding: Given the buyer`s seller inspection report should be optional, what I see is the seller, as there is to the nearest buyer, yep I know they should not and are not valid if the number 2 buyer has problems after the count , but it happens in the real world !!! I think (and I honestly thought it was) that it should be mandatory that disclosure from an online seller should be available to anyone who plans a home. Last week I had to contact a ReMax agent for someone, and I`ve already done it once – sometimes it takes a few days to get it. Why this is not mandatory to offer as part of the list agreement, would be the buyer, if they look at a house for the first time. Having worked in PA real estate for over 20 years, I agree that a unilateral disclosure form is guaranteed for the sale of real estate. Domestic inspections too: if PAR says now, all sellers must receive the buyer`s home inspection report, if it is necessary to know „which seller has the right to approve or not approve this report.“ Residential sales contracts generally contain promises and provisions that guarantee the condition of a property. Many states legally require sellers to deivate explicit information about the condition of a property. In states where this is necessary and where a seller deliberately conceals such information, they may be prosecuted for fraud. 35 years ago, we had a unilateral AOS. Yes, we needed changes, and they worked better for everyone. But we have to get this over with. But guess what…. the biggest problem is coming very soon. Amazon, Zillow, Trulia, etc.
are the huge factor that no one wants to meet. Our industry will soon be swallowed up by these buzzing companies. Wake people up, brokers will soon be a lost job when these giants take over. Our leaders are fully aware of this problem; But they don`t know how to stop it. You should know that it will be soon. This is not a joke. The Pennsylvania Residential Real Estate Purchase Contract („Real Estate Purchase Contract“) allows a potential buyer to enter into a legal agreement with a seller for the acquisition of real estate. The agreement covers a wide range of conditions, including purchase price, closing conditions, serious money and other financial contingencies. Ownership of the property can only be legally transferred if the buyer and seller accept the terms of the contract and enter their signature into the contract. There will also be two new changes – what else? – Form-ASR (and of course other sales contracts).
Although minor, these changes are very important because they affect the rights and remedies that your clients have under the contract. The first change affects the buyer`s rights if the seller is not able to transfer a little less than the full title. Since the form is currently written, the buyer`s only option is to terminate the contract if the seller is unable to transfer „good marketable securities“; From July, the buyer will have an additional opportunity to „take a title that the seller can pass on.“ This allows the buyer to choose between taking a less than perfect security and terminating the agreement.
