In the sale of real estate, there are often many moves: moving a workplace, closing an old house, selling a house, a buyer who secures financing and a successful visit to the house. To plan these challenges, which can be anticipated, it is advisable to include emergency clauses in your real estate contract so that, when a problem arises in such a way that an eventuality cannot be met, there is no infringement. The specific benefit is when the court orders that the party who breaks up take a particular action. As a general rule, under contract law, even if a party significantly violates the contract, it only requires damages – it does not require the offence to take any particular action. If the seller violates the sales contract by refusing to sell the property to the buyer, the buyer generally executes three practices: (1) The buyer may require the seller to “perform the sale contract in a specific way” by selling the property to the buyer;2) the buyer can claim damages for breach of the sale contract by the seller; or (3) the buyer may revoke the sale contract by voluntary agreement, by legal resignation or by a non-judicial decision. Often, contracts to purchase real estate contain a provision that indicates how to resolve a dispute over the real estate contract. If a seller or buyer violates a sales contract, each party should seek legal advice from a real estate lawyer: to the aggrieved party on the risks of non-performance and to the non-infringing party on the remedies in the event of non-performance of the other party. In many cases, there are creative alternatives for a seller and buyer to minimize risk in a failed transaction. Any real estate agent involved in an aborted transaction may also seek the assistance of a real estate lawyer to determine if a commission has been earned and can be recovered. If a seller refuses to enter into a property after signing a real estate contract, either because he has changed his mind or because he has received a better offer from someone else, he may be in breach of a contract. Suppose your contract offers a deadline of July 1, but instead, the seller calls you to say that it cannot close until September 30? The seller who was scheduled to enter into the contract on July 1 substantially breached the contract for execution and can be held liable for damages. After the conclusion of a contract, an action for damages of money is a common remedy. To obtain this damage, the purchaser would have to prove that he or she suffered financial harm as a result of the offence.
The amount of financial damage a buyer can receive depends largely on existing government laws. For example, if the seller acted in good faith, the buyer can only obtain damages in the form of his deposit and some additional costs.
