Description

  • The agreement for sale of business is an agreement reached between the seller of a business, which is sometimes commonly called the "goodwill", and the purchaser.
  • The agreement for the sale of business enables you to set forth the various terms and arrangements made between the parties.
  • If the sale of the business includes a real estate property, this type of property must then be subject to a separate sale agreement, since the sale of a real estate property requires the signing of a notarized deed.
  • The agreement for sale of business, available on this website, is a document that contains the main provisions whereof an overview can be found in the "Summary" tab above.
  • This is a document that will meet your needs for a relatively simple sale of business. For a sale of business of which conditions are more complex, especially for a transaction with a balance of sale price or for a transaction including the sale of an immovable/real estate property, we invite you to contact  .
