The offer to purchase is an extremely important document in the negotiations that would lead to the acquisition of a property.
It is a contract whereby the purchaser agrees to purchase and in return, the seller, who accepts the offer to purchase, undertakes to sell under the conditions established in the said offer.
The offer to purchase is therefore binding upon both parties.
The non-compliance with the offer to purchase may have serious legal consequences for the party who refuses to comply with such a contract:
If the seller refuses to execute the offer to purchase, the purchaser may require the court to force the seller to sell with the conditions specified in the offer to purchase;
If the purchaser does not want to perform his obligation anymore, the seller may apply to the court for damages due to the suffered disturbances.
Although the offer to purchase, available on this website, is a comprehensive document that will normally meet your needs, we also offer, as an option, a review or legal support service.
For an offer to purchase whereof conditions are more complex, we invite you to contact .
In addition to the offer to purchase, you will also get, at no additional charge, a detailed form regarding the seller's property information statement in respect of the immovable property in question.
