We're Not Attorneys

attorneys-blog

You know, in Florida, we write the offer to purchase usually from the buyer, on a contract form.

That form is then signed by the buyer and sent to the seller. If the seller agrees with all the provisions in the offer, then they can sign it and send it back to the buyer. Now we have a contract!! In Florida Most closings are done by Title Companies and the buyers and sellers are not required to have attorneys fill out a contract.

So, sales associates help the buyers and sellers write the sale and purchase contract. We are allowed to fill in the blanks of Supreme Court Approved contracts. This means that we must be knowledgeable in the contract form that we use and understand that there might be special conditions that occur in different transactions. There are Riders that we can attach, written by attorneys that fit most residential situations.

However, we are never allowed to write any provisions effectively changing the contract. We have a clause for “additional terms” that should be used to explain provisions. If you listed pool equipment as personal property to convey, then here is where we can explain what is included in pool equipment. If there are special clauses needed for the contract it is our obligation to tell our customers to see an attorney!
