Residential Real Estate Contracts for Sale & Purchase

Type: Webinar
Price: $50 Members & staff, $65 Non-Members
Date(s):Tuesday, September 11 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) - Register Now

At the heart of every real estate transaction stands the contract for sale and purchase. But what do its provisions really mean? How does it govern the parties’ performance? Is the real estate broker a party to the contract or a third party beneficiary? Is the settlement agent a party to the contract? Is the contract even valid in the first place? This seminar gives you the tools to answer these questions and more through an examination and review of the important principles of Florida real estate contract law.

In this three-part seminar we explore these principles within the context of the most recent FR/BAR 5 contract revised April 2017, as well as other commonly used form contracts, including relevant riders and “AS/IS” variants. In addition, the course will cover various contractual deadlines and the preparation of timelines, checklists, and tools for monitoring performance on the part of the buyer, seller, and settlement agent.

Part I – Begins with an overview of the contract and continues through the financing section, including an analysis of ethical issues which may present.

Part II – This second hour begins with review of the closing costs, fees and charges section of the contract, proceeds through portions of the standards section, with additional focus on ethical concerns which may arise when addressing these sections.

Part III – After completing review of the standards section and concluding the contract review, a comparative analysis of the FR/BAR and the CRSP contracts is undertaken. The seminar concludes with a discussion of common issues and solutions which arise with the contract, addressing deadlines, and a final review of ethical issues.
