They're on very shaky ground. You may have to pursue them civilly in small claims court but if both parties read and signed the contract, they should be bound to the quoted price. At the very least, a judge should find there was no meeting of the minds on the agreement and void the contract.

The correct statement about contract is that a contract is an agreement between a buyer and a seller. A contract can be a written or oral agreement.

The seller cannot change their mind once they have signed a contract unless there is some language in the contract that will allow them to back out of the sale. You need to review the terms of your purchase and sale agreement.

A land grant contract is an agreement between a buyer and seller to purchase real estate. The contract will specify terms and conditions and sometimes involve owner financing.

Those words have been taken from a contract or agreement out of context. Examples of their use in contract language are as follows: The Buyer will pay one-half of the closing costs of the Seller pursuant to the agreement signed by the parties on 9/01/2008. The bank has no claims against Seller pursuant to the Note or otherwise.

There are remedies available to the Seller if a buyer does not purchase the real estate as agreed in a written, fully executed contract. These are only available to the seller if the buyer has signed the contract and there are no limiting conditions such as a financial clause, inspection clause, due diligence period, etc. If the buyer breaches the contract the seller may sue to keep the buyer's deposit, sue for damages caused by the buyer breaching the contract, and may also sue for "specific performance" which would force the buyer to purchase and close on the real estate.

You can't. If you signed then you have agreed to purchase the vehicle. Your only recourse is to talk to the seller and see if they will let you out of the deal. Offer to pay them to tear up the agreement.

Yes, a seller can sign the agreement first, but it is not binding until all parties have signed and the signed copies have been delivered.

An agreement to sell is just that. A promise if you will, that you will sell something to someone.A sales contract is far more important and far more legal. If for example you want to purchase a new car, this contract that you and the dealer fill out is called a Sales Contract, and both parties are bound by what this contract says.More Information:in a contract of sale:the title of the thing passes to the buyer upon the delivery of the thing soldnonpayment in a contract of sale is a negative resolutory conditionin a contract of sal, the seller has lost and cannot recover ownership of the thing until and unleess the contract is resolved or rescindedin a contract to sell:by agreement, the ownership of the thing is resrved in the seller and is not to pass to the buyer until the full payment of the pricefullpayment is a contract to sell is a positive suspensive conditionthe title of the thing remains in the seller, and when he seeks to eject the buyr because of noncompliance by such buyer with the suspensive condition stipulated, he is only enforcing the contract and not resolving the same

If you have both signed the contract and it is legally valid, then NO, the seller cannot change the terms of the contract or unilaterally void the contract (unless the contract states that the seller is allowed to do this). If you are in doubt, you need to talk to a lawyer ASAP.

When the seller of goods transfers or agrees to transfers (agreement to sale) the general property (ownership) to the buyer for the price, then it is called "contract of sale".

The contract for a purchase of bonds is called a bond indenture, which provides a description of the bond issue as well as the rights of both the buyer and seller.

No, that would not generally be grounds for terminating a purchase and sale agreement unless the prohibition were specifically stated. If the buyer is trespassing, that would be a different issue than the obligation to purchase and sell the property.

The purchase agreement was signed in Paris, France-- France was the seller.

Define a "binder." If the 'binder' is a contract to purchase, then the seller has breached the contract, and can be sued for damages for non-performance.

Contract of SaleContract to SellTitle over the property passes to the buyer upon delivery unless there is a contrary agreementOwnership is retained by the seller whether or not there is delivery. Ownership passes to the buyer only upon full payment of the priceNon-payment of the purchase price is a negative resolutory condition, meaning the sale becomes ineffective upon the happening of such conditionThe payment in full is a positive suspensive condition, meaning, if the purchase price is not paid, the obligation to deliver and to transfer ownership on the part of the seller does not become effectiveAfter delivery of the objective, the seller loses ownership over it. Unless, the contract is set aside, he cannot recover the objectWhether there is delivery or not, the seller retains the ownership of the object. If the seller, due to non-payment of the price is ousting the buyer from the property, he (seller) is not rescinding the contract of sale but is precisely enforcing it.

Once you have entered into a valid contract -- the buyer can "assign" ; "substitute" or hand the contract over to somebody else to fulfill the original terms that the original buyer made with the seller. Usually in a Washington state purchase/sale agreement -- there is a clause that specifies the buyer cannot do this (assign) the agreement to somebody else -- without the sellers express permission and/or approval.

If a contract was signed, then they need to be taken to court for the amount owed.

Yes, there are types of contracts that are more risky. A time and material's contract has the least risk for the seller. A fixed fee contract can be very risky for the seller, but also has some downsides to the buyer.

The seller is interested in selling the property and not getting into a legal battle over breach of contract. Keep the deposit and move on to the next buyer.

It is possible but will require "creative thinking" on your part and your REALTOR. Possibly you could find a seller willing to sell by using a Contract for Deed agreement.

Here are two types of contracts that may answer your question: Requirements contract - A Buyer agrees to purchase all of their needed from a certain seller Output contract - Buyer agrees to purchase all that is produced by seller

it is alike becaue both buyer and seller must sign the contract
