What is the purpose of Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
The purpose of Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement is to create real estate transaction documents and create new opportunities for sellers to make home buyers aware of what is expected in return for purchasing a house.
What to include and not to include in Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
The main part of Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement are two documents which must be included in the document:
1.) The “RESTORATION PERIOD” which details the date when the house, which was formerly owned by the buyer, should be returned to the seller/seller's agent.
2.) Form Real Estate Agreement is meant to ensure that the buyer does not take a mortgage against the property without informing the seller. The buyer has to inform the seller about this. Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement cannot be used for property which was given to the buyer as gift.
What is an extension of time for a seller to sign a Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
Usually the seller has 7 days to agree to a Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement. If the seller does agree to the documents, they should have the new document submitted to the Land Department of the Land Ministry within three days after the agreement of the document by the seller.
Are the buyer and the seller supposed to meet to finalize the Land Acquisition Agreement between them?
The seller/seller's agent must go to the office of Land Bureau and meet the buyer or the buyer's representative at least three times before the buyer is ready to buy the house. A land purchase agreement must be finalized at least 30 days before the house is actually taken away by the government to be developed.
What happens if, for some reason, the buyer's agent can not sign the Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
If the buyer (the seller) wants to delay or not complete the Land Acquisition Agreement, you can inform the buyers that the seller is not ready to sign the documents.
Can the buyer have an extension of time for closing a purchase?
If the seller (the buyer) wants extension of time to close the transaction, you must inform the buyers in writing within three days of the notice given, which confirms the buyer's intention to postpone the closing. If this is not done, you must inform the buyer in writing about extension of time.
What is the process of filing a case against the seller?
The buyer has to apply for the case against the seller.
Who should complete Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
If you intend to buy an existing house (rather than buying a home outright), you should complete a form called a title statement. This statement is a report that should be sent to the county recorder's office in the county in which you intend to purchase this house. The seller must sign it, and you must send an affidavit with it; the form must also be signed by all the people who occupy the house. A copy of the title statement or affidavit must be attached to the application. A separate form, Purchase Agreement for Real Property, can be used for a specific type of land purchase. If property is to be purchased within five years of your 18th birthday, you should use form Real Estate Purchase Agreement. If you are buying land for a long-term project, you should complete form Real Estate Purchase Agreement for All Projects.
How long must I hold the title? (18-year rule) Although your county may not require you to hold a title for more than six months before selling, most states do require you to hold the title for a minimum of 18 months before selling. This is a condition that is intended to ensure that buyers have sufficient time to work out any problems they may encounter as they attempt to find a new home. When you send in the application and the affidavit, you should attach a copy of the property deed. If the property has just been sold, you should give this deed and the original application to the new owner.
Do I have to pay for title search costs when doing this for my own property? If the seller does not provide this information on their application, you are required to find this information for yourself. If you have problems finding out the information you need, talk to a local real estate agent.
Are there any fees associated with this process? The fee you pay is the cost of doing the title search; the seller's fee is generally the fee to have the seller's name included in the title report. You should pay this fee even if you don't intend to do the title search yourself.
Can I obtain a copy of the title report and other information on the property before I complete the Application for Title? Yes. The seller's application and the affidavit should be mailed to a local government office, although this document cannot be inspected by anyone except the person who completes the application and affidavit. You can request copies of the report or information by contacting the office directly.
When do I need to complete Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
Your landlord must process Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement. The Landlord may, at any time, require you to sign and return a copy to him or her. If he does, the Landlord need not process you another Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement until five days have passed from the date your landlord has received your completed Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement. You may request a copy of your most recent Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement by calling the Landlord's Hotline at. To request a copy of the most recent Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement, please call the Landlord's Hotline at.
Once the Landlord has received all the information and required fees as indicated on your completed Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement, he or she must electronically complete the Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement within twenty-four (24) hours after receipt of this information. This is very important. If you do not complete this electronic form within twenty-four (24) hours, you may be evicted. The Landlord must make sure you complete this Form on a current computer, with sufficient security features. Failure to do so may result in the landlord not serving the Form on you. Please see instructions on Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement as well as the Landlord's Hotline page for specific procedures for each type of lease or rental.
What if I do not complete everything required on the Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
If you do not complete everything required on the Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement, the Landlord may serve you with a Notice of Non payment for failure to pay the required fees on or before the tenth day of the month after the form is requested. As indicated in Section II. B.2., the Landlord may also serve you with a Notice of Eviction for failure to pay the required fees on or before the eleventh day of the month after the form is requested.
If the Landlord receives payment from you, will the Landlord give me the keys to the property?
A Lessor may take possession of your rental property only after he or she receives payment from the tenant. The Lessor must first file an Affidavit of Obtainable of possession of the rental property with the Sheriff's Office, District Court and Superior Court.
Can I create my own Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
Yes. You might be able to get the form from your real estate agent or broker. Many buyers also purchase their homes through legal arrangements. (For example, you might use a trust or as part of an individual or group settlement.) To qualify to do this, the agreement must include a description of the property that it describes and state that it satisfies a set of requirements regarding purchase (e.g., it meets the requirements of FHA or VA laws and is a suitable property to rent or even sell). The agreement is called a “REPO,” or “Recapitulation of Intent.” You can download a new “REPO” form from the U. S. General Services Administration website, or you can contact a local government agency and get a request to do this yourself if you use one. This form will be issued to the seller and buyer together, including any title to the property. A copy will be given to the seller's real estate agent. It should go with the receipt of sale form, which must be in your hands at the time of your meeting with the seller. The REPO can be used once, by both the buyer and seller.
Can I include a contract between both the buyer and seller that establishes the purchase price?
Yes, you can include an actual contract between the buyer and the seller at the time of purchase, along with the actual cash for the sale. There might be special guidelines that the seller must follow before signing the agreement.
Can I use the REPO agreement instead of a contract to sell my home?
If a form REPO is sufficient, you may be able to keep your current legal documentation and include the contract as a separate agreement between the seller and buyer. If this is the case, the contract is not meant to be used by itself. Both parties are expected to sign each other's forms separately (see below) until the terms of contract are approved by the government, usually the Housing Authority of the City of Chicago (CIA). In the meantime, the contract should be filled in with an offer of sale form and attached to the offer document, and the form REPO used with these contracts.
How are the terms of contract described in the REPO?
In your REPO, you will provide the specific price you offer for the home and the terms of the contract (including the seller's obligation to give the buyer a receipt and a copy of the receipt to the buyer upon completion of the sale).

What documents do I need to attach to my Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
There is no formal document required from any real estate purchaser when he or she purchases a first home. However, the agreement should clearly state the purchase price, the seller's name and address, the time when the agreement is signed and the date. When a buyer is purchasing a second unit, he or she also needs to receive a receipt acknowledging the deal and the date of purchase, which should be provided separately from the purchase agreement. We advise that any property you take possession of before selling it must be properly recorded at the Land Register Office as a new property within 45 days of sale.
Why do buyers sometimes not receive a Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
Sometimes, sellers may be in a hurry to complete the purchase of the property and not have time to deal with the paperwork. Sometimes, sellers may be unaware that they need to sign the agreement as soon as possible. In such cases, the original Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement remains in the possession of the client who is buying the property. To get a replacement signed by the person who paid your deposit, you will have to provide the original document again, and you may not be able to get a replacement agreement in a timely manner. It is important that you provide all the relevant documents and ask the seller to send you the original documents. If the seller does not send out the original documents when you ask, the contract is null and void.
Why don't sellers list their properties on the MLS?
There are a number of reasons why listings don't appear on the MLS. The first reason is that the buyers are not yet willing to put the property on the MLS. They might think that the potential sale of their place is a long-term investment which requires a big deposit. However, in the event that they want to sell up front it is generally more advantageous to have the property as soon as possible.
Another reason buyers don't list their properties on the MLS is that they are not completely sure about the property itself and whether it is suitable for their situation. They are not aware of the price, the condition of the house, the property type, or the general market.
How many people do I have to convince moving to my home?
Many people don't realize that they will have to convince not only themselves (they have to sell the property before they leave) but also a certain number of relatives or friends who may get to live in the home.
What are the different types of Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement?
There are four types of Forms of Real Estate Purchase Agreement:
1. Real estate purchase agreement.
2. Land purchase agreement.
4. Land development project.
How does the seller go about signing the Contract of Sale?
The seller first must sign the Real Estate Purchase agreement and submit a copy. The buyer signs the actual Contract of Sale or Lease.
How to sign the Contract of Sale (Procedure).
When the seller signs the Contract of Sale they can print his/her signature or have someone write it for him/her.
After signing the Contract of Sale the seller will then provide the buyer with an invoice.
The buyer is then asked to give the seller a receipt. The buyer also must sign the Contract of Sale with his/her signature or a signature will be invalidated.
After receiving the Contract of Sale the seller signs it and gives it back to the buyer. The buyer then provides the Receipt to the Realtor so that the real property can be registered in the name of the seller.
When the buyer has delivered the completed Transfer of Title document and the Receipt of Real Property to the Real Estate agent he/she will complete a Release of Liability statement, which will show the value of the property.
When the real estate agent is satisfied with the documentation and the value of the property being sold, the buyer's credit is approved.
How will you receive the refund?
Once you receive the Receipt of Real Property that has been signed by both the seller and the buyer, you pay the purchase price to the seller or a transferee if you are the transferor or a transferee if you are the lien holder. The seller or the transferor will then deduct the total purchase amount from your account.
When you receive the refund you must mail the receipt to the Assessor's office that has jurisdiction for the property.
How long does the real estate transaction takes? Does the real estate agent have to make a sale?
There is an 8-year waiting period (or two 10-years waiting periods if the original purchase price is 100,000) before the buyer can take possession of the property.
If the buyer does not have any more funds for the purchase price, then the lien holder or transferor can sell the property before that time.
How many people fill out Form Real Estate Purchase Agreement each year?
This is probably the most common question many have been asked about; and the first thing to make sure you know is that there is no specific number of Real Estate Purchase Agreements that come in on a given calendar year. The vast majority of real estate buyers, whether in the United States, Canada or internationally need multiple Real Estate Purchase Agreements because the actual purchasing agreement is the contract that governs and determines who the parties will be when the transaction is complete.
The “Form RPA” typically refers to an Application for Title, or in Canada the Application to Survey and Validate the Premises and the Form Survey of Interests (SIA). The Form RPA is used by all Real Estate Licensees in all provinces, territories, jurisdictions and other jurisdictions.
