Whether you represent the buyer or seller if you are involved in a real estate sale transaction in which the buyer will occupy the property before the count or the seller will occupy the property after the count, it is important to ensure that the conditions of occupancy are properly documented. Sometimes the parties and real estate agents involved in such transactions do not focus on the fact that an agreement on the occupancy of the property by the buyer before colonization or occupation of the property by the seller after the count is essentially a lease agreement between the parties. Therefore, the occupancy agreement should cover the same fundamental issues that are addressed in a duly developed lease. Finally, make sure that all appropriate parties, both the buyer and the seller, sign the occupancy agreement. If you are dealing with a post-billing contract, you will certainly want the agreement to at least allow the 15-hour occupancy fee to double or triple if the seller/tenant is late. However, depending on the circumstances of this case, the purchaser/lessor may, in addition to the statute of limitations and other legal costs, be faced with considerable additional costs related to the application of the contract, which may not be covered by a simple doubling or even a tripling of the daily occupancy tax. For example, the additional cost of temporary accommodation, the cost of storing furniture and the cost of a double move may be significant depending on the circumstances. If the buyer occupies the property prior to colonization, the diseditled verification of the property is carried out if the buyer occupies the property or at the time of colonization? If the seller remains in the property, the buyer should have the opportunity to check the property both before the count and at the time the occupation is completed after the seller`s count. A few quick comments on the standard pre-occupancy contract: If you are willing to have your buyer removed before the count, you should write a written agreement containing at least the following: The buyer agrees to place the balance of the deposit with the title lawyer or title company to demonstrate his good faith.
