Contract Dos and Don'ts

Recorded April 6, 2016


Get an overview on recent contract changes, the importance of how the contract is/was completed by the Realtor and the title agent's role. 

This webinar covers the following:
*Earnest money –  not only a sign of good faith, but a measure of liquidated damages
*Special provisions –  what language should be inserted
*What the escrow agent is not a party to the contract 
*What the escrow agent cannot do – release earnest money without a "Release of Earnest Money"
*Option money
*Effective/executed date – the starting point for many time provisions (title agents MUST NEVER complete)
*Contract and earnest money receipt 
*Permission to release TRID forms
