The contract to purchase and sell commercial real estate in Florida is used to clarify the details of a commercial real estate transaction between a seller and a buyer. In general, each party will have its own real estate agent and lawyer present when considering a purchase and sale contract. Commercial real estate sales are more complex than residential real estate transactions and often require more paperwork and rigorous inspections and research. A purchase and sale agreement for commercial real estate defines the terms of sale of the property in question, including the sale price, financing, insurance, securities and deeds, the condition of the real estate, termination options and completion date. Each purchase and sale contract is different, but the most negotiated part of the transaction is the purchase price. Then everything else becomes easier to manage and a contract can usually be concluded and signed. This form can be used for residential sale and purchase transactions and provides for dispute resolution. No Brokerage Relationship (No. 475.278 (4)) – A real estate agent who does not have a brokerage relationship with a seller or buyer must disclose his obligations by filling out this form. This form is a listing agreement for commercial real estate in which the seller gives the broker the exclusive right to sell the property. This is a listing agreement in which the seller authorizes the broker to sell the property and offer cooperation to other agents, but reserves the right to sell the property himself.
This form should be attached to the purchase and sale agreement if the property for sale is a co-operative.
