A counter-offer is considered a new offer that invalidates all previous contracts. The contract delivered must be written and signed and contain the legal names of the parties to the operation as well as the legal description of the good to be binding. A real estate purchase contract goes through a particular process before becoming mandatory. Seller and buyer agree on an additional price and conditions. The last party who signed the contract ratifies it by signing it, but it is only if it is handed over to the other party that it is considered binding. One of the most common reasons why a real estate transaction fails is financing – or a buyer`s inability to get financing from their lender. For example, an appraisal condition protects buyers and gives them the opportunity to walk away from the sale if the home does not value the agreed purchase price. If the home is valued at a price below the purchase price, it usually means that the lender can`t offer buyers as much financing as they hoped. In a binding sales contract, a seller agrees to sell something and a buyer agrees to accept it.
It must contain a clear and definitive agreement on what is being sold. This is sometimes called mutual ostracism. Contingencies are often built into a real estate contract, and during this period of eventuality, many transactions collapse. What is at stake is the deposit that accompanied the agreement and its intact return to the buyer. Civil disputes can also be held when a binding real estate contract is not concluded. If the terms of an agreement are reached, what type of act or signature is sufficient to recognize the approval of agreements? While the answer to this question was previously a written signature on a paper contract, the advent of electronic communications has changed the nature of what constitutes valid acceptance. According to the uniform Electronic Transactions Act, which is set out in M. G.
L.c 110G, § 7 (d), “an electronic signature is in accordance with the law” An electronic signature is “an electronic signature. Symbol or process attached to or logically linked to a data set, executed or accepted by a person intending to sign the record. It is therefore no longer necessary today to create, generate, send or communicate a signature under ueta. See M.G.L.c 110G, § 5(a). In other words, a copy of an actual signature registered and sent electronically is not required. Instead, “an electronic record or signature must be assigned to a person when it comes to the person`s act. The action of a person can be represented in any way…. “, Mr G. L.c 110G, § 9 (a); and is determined from the context and surrounding circumstances at the time of creation or execution. Mr.
G. L.c 110G, § 9 (b). Thus, the name of a party that appears at the end of an email may be a sufficient “electronic signature” because “the name entered at the end of an email indicates a party`s intention to authenticate, because the sender of an email issues and sends the message of himself and types his own name as he wishes.” Shattuck, 2001 WL 1839720, at *4 (e-mail negotiations can fill in the status of fraud cases, even if the e-mails do not have a formal script signature); Feldberg, 2012 WL 3854947 to *6 (some parts of an email may meet the fraud status signing requirement). . . .
