It’s a big deal. You’re in a home that you’ve designed with a lot of thought and care. You know there’s going to be a lot of maintenance that needs to be done. You’re in a home that may not be perfect but that you’re designing with intention to last for a very long time.
In real estate the law is fairly clear that you need this clause to be included in your contract, but a lot of times you dont know what the legal requirements are so you dont know if youd need it. In a condo or apartment complex this clause is a common one and usually included in the lease to insure that maintenance is covered, but if you are putting together an investment property you could opt to write your own legal contract.
So why not? There are a few reasons. One reason is that sometimes we don’t know what we want. We have a vision that we want to create, or a goal that we have, but we dont know what legal requirements are ahead of time. Another reason is that sometimes we like to do things without the knowledge of the legal requirements.
I remember a time when I wanted to buy a house but I wasnt sure how I would be able to afford it. You might say that I was setting myself up for failure. I mean, I wasnt going to be able to afford the house when I bought it, but I wasnt sure what the legal requirements were for the property. That is why it made sense to write my own contract because I would be able to be sure I could afford the house before I signed the lease.
The fact is that for most of the world, you can’t purchase property without legal documents. This is a topic that gets a lot of flak from both buyers and sellers. In the US, the sale of real estate requires three forms of legal documentation: a Deed of Trust, a Conveyance of Trust, and a Real Estate Contract. If you don’t have all three of these forms of paperwork, you can’t legally sell real estate in the US.
It’s important to know that no real estate contract is a legally binding agreement, but rather a legally unenforceable document. It just helps in legal terminology, and is simply meant to keep the seller from suing you for any damages that occur during the transaction. It can also be used to protect the seller from being sued.
A Deed of Trust is a contract that provides that the seller retains ownership over the property and that they will make all payments on the contract. The seller can then walk away from the property and not make any payments to the seller or the buyer and the transaction will be void. In the same way that a bank keeps money in a savings account, a real estate contract keeps money in a real estate contract.
A deed of trust is a contract that provides that the seller retains ownership over the property and that they will make all payments on the contract. The seller can then walk away from the property and not make any payments to the seller or the buyer and the transaction will be void.
Because there is a deed of trust for real estate, you can purchase a property with minimal risk. This is not to say that you can’t get a cheap property with an easy title, but you will have to be very careful about it. For example, even if the seller is willing to allow you to foreclose on their property, they may agree to give you a deed of trust so that you can get a second mortgage on a property without the seller being in any danger.
In short, this is the reason why defeasance clauses exist in real estate contracts. If you are going to sell or purchase a property, you have to be comfortable that the other party is going to be able to pay you back the balance due on the property. If you can’t guarantee that someone will be able to pay you back, then you aren’t going to be able to get the property at all.
