Taking the Lead in Purchase/Sale Agreements

Every transaction that seeks to transfer the ownership of real estate between two parties involves a purchase/sale agreement. As far as the law is concerned, the two parties are free to include almost any provision that they wish into the purchase/sale contract. This means that these matters are open for negotiation.

Having our New Jersey real estate attorney on your side can be a great benefit during these negotiation sessions. Naturally, the sale price is a major discussion point during these talks, but other items are also negotiable, such as a closing date, the move-in date, and which fixtures are included in the sale. In short, it is vital to come to terms that are to your benefit. Allowing one of our experienced attorneys to draft a real estate contract that contains those terms can bring you significant financial savings.

Providing Continuing Support After the Closing Date

For many people, a real estate transaction appears to conclude on a move-in date. However, it is possible at a later date to discover that another party has failed to provide what they promised in a purchase/sale agreement.

One common example involves the mandatory disclosure rules under New Jersey law. Mandatory disclosure rules require a seller to provide information about the property that allows a buyer to make an informed decision concerning an offer to buy. If a seller knowingly omits information on these mandatory disclosures, they might be liable for the costs to fix any damage or give the buyer the right to void the sale entirely.

These cases allege that a breach of contract has occurred in a real estate transaction. Parties pursuing breach of contract cases can ask a civil court to enforce the terms of a contract or else void the agreement in its entirety. According to New Jersey Revised Statute § 12A:2-725, there is a time limit of four years after the date that the breach occurred to demand a remedy in court. One of our New Jersey real estate lawyers can help you determine if a breach of contract has occurred and pursue appropriate compensation on your behalf. We are not afraid to fight for our clients and ensure that they are not taken advantage of.
