A contract, if properly drafted, is enforceable. If the buyer requests a release the seller can negotiate or keep the deposit.

The contract will delineate the responbilities of the buyer and the seller

In terms of finance, the acronym cfd stands for "contract for difference," which refers to a contract that occurs between a buyer and a seller. In this contract, the seller of an asset agrees to pay the buyer the difference between the value of the asset when it is bought and when it is sold. However, if that difference is negative, the buyer will pay the seller the difference.

A land contract is also known as a land installment contract and a contract for deed. It is a contract between a buyer and seller for real property where the seller provides the financing with specific terms.

"In finance, a contract for difference is a contract between two different parties. Buyer and seller are involved. The buyer has to pay the seller the difference between the current value of the thing and its value during contract time."

Upon both the buyer and the seller signing the contract.

The contract is not enforceable unless both parties signed it. If the sellers changed their mind and didn't sign then you don't have a contract.

When it has been signed by the buyer and seller.

The price that the buyer and seller agree on.

A seller can charge whatever interest they wish on a land contract. The buyer doesn't have to sign a contract if they don't agree with the terms.

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.

You should review the terms set forth in the contract to determine your rights. Generally the deposit is forfeited when the buyer defaults.

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 time limit a seller has to sign a real estate contract will be part of the contract the buyer writes with his agent. Typically a buyer will get a recommendation from his Realtor what is customary in the local market. This can vary from giving the seller just a few hours, up to several days or more.

A contract for deed is a real estate transaction in which the seller retains title to the property and finances the sale with the buyer. A contract for deed is also referred to as an installment sales contract. The popularity of a contract for deed transactions rises and falls, depending on the availability of mortgage lending. In a contract for deed, the buyer does not obtain a mortgage. The seller agrees to take a down payment and monthly payments made directly to the seller. The seller will hold the deed to the property in escrow. Normally, an interest rate is charged on the outstanding balance of the contract, much like a lender charges mortgage interest. The buyer will usually obtain possession to the property when the contract is signed, but not title to the property. If the buyer defaults on the contract, the seller merely cancels the contract and retakes possession. The buyer will normally forfeit the down payment and any payments made will be treated as rent. In some states, if the buyer has paid a substantial portion of the contract, courts may treat the contract as a mortgage, and the buyer may receive a portion of the equity back. Taxes, insurance and maintenance are usually treated as if the buyer had obtained a mortgage and was the owner of the property. Yearly taxes are usually the responsibility of the buyer. Prudent sellers will require the buyer to obtain fire and casualty insurance, and will often require the buyer to name the seller as a payee. Repairs and maintenance are also usually the responsibility of the buyer. Sometimes, a seller will require permission if the buyer intends on making improvements to the property, especially if the buyer is retaining contractors. A buyer will normally need the seller's permission to resell the property. However, if the buyer obtains a sufficient sales price to pay off the remainder of the contract, the buyer can simply pay off the contract and then immediately sell the property to the subsequent buyer. A contract for deed may or may not have a balloon payment. Balloon payments are more commonly seen on shorter term contracts. After a number of years of monthly payments, 5 years, for example, the buyer must pay off the remainder of the contract. The final payment is known as the balloon payment. For example, A sells a property to B for $150,000, with $10,000 down and payments of $800.00 per month for 5 years, accruing interest at 5%. At the end of 5 years, the remaining balance must be paid in full. If payments are timely made, there will be a remaining balance of $125,265.00. The buyer must pay off the $125,265.00 as a balloon payment to complete the contract. A contract for deed can be beneficial to both parties, but is more risky than a mortgage. The seller, by providing his own financing, obtains interest from the buyer. If the seller has an existing mortgage, the lender might call the loan due, if the mortgage permits it. The buyer takes the risk that payments will be made. If a default occurs, the buyer may lose everything invested in the property.

When the buyer does not perform under the contract, and it is not possible to get damages.

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.

If a seller and a buyer have already signed a contract, then you have to sell according to the contract. If you want to sell to someone else not on the contract, then you have to get out of the first contract.

Typically a real estate contract begins with a written offer from the buyer. The offer, to be official is signed by they buyer. From there there seller may make amendments and sign and amended contract, that needs to be approved and the changes are either initialled by the buyer and the seller or a new contract containing agreed upon amendments is resigned by both parties. The signing continues until a final agreement with all agreed changes has been signed by both parties. For further information, see the related link below.

When it is signed, sealed (usually the word "SEAL" is just to the right of the signatures) and delivered to the seller or his agent.

A contract for differences is generally a contract between two people or different groups, often seen as one buyer and one seller. Generally stipulating that the seller will pay the difference in a sale.

The seller. The seller is shipping it to the buyer, not vice versa.

Here in California, it is a matter of local custom. In Southern California, typically the seller agrees to purchase the owners policy for the buyer, the buyer supplies the title insurance for the lender. In Northern California, the buyer typically pays for both policies. It is, however, a matter that is covered in the contract between the seller and buyer and is negotiable, as is everything else. All closing costs can be negotiated as part of the sales contract. Who pays for title insurance varies from state to state based on local custom, but can be negotiated between the buyer and seller as part of the sales contract. There are no laws providing for either party to be required to pay. In the case where the seller has elected to pay title expenses, the buyer needs to make sure that the Lender has approved those fees to be paid by the seller. Some types of mortgages require that the buyer/borrower have a certain amount of funds available for the closing fees and may "cap" what fees can or cannot be paid by the seller in behalf of the buyer.
