Be Aware of Form 122 – ‘Reciprocal Immunité’
In any case, if you are a first-time résidence buyer or someone choosing to invest in real estate or become an investor, you should read this first. Real estate agents can also benefit. A reminder that when a person lieux an offer on a property, it’s just that “their offer”.
As a buyer, when you affermi an offer on a property, you need to remember that it is your offer. When signing the contract and attaching your schedule, you need to make sure that the clauses are for your benefit. Be aware that the realtor is working for themselves and therefore in many cases you are not the buyer or even the seller to protect themselves.
What is a Form 122 – Reciprocal Release?
It’s a deal. It is executed by the realtor, if the realtor believes that you are going back from the authentique contract, which was entered into to buy the property. This Agreement is solely for the benefit of the Realtor and the real estate company for which the Realtor is working. This contract must be signed by both ‘Buyer’ and ‘Seller’. The buyer is asked to sign first. The contract is then sent to the seller for their visa.
Here’s the catch. When the buyer signs the form (that’s you), you’re automatically off the hook for the real estate company to refund your deposit. You have just waived your right to sue for your deposit, should it ever come to this. The real estate company then sends this form to the seller for their visa. If they sign it, everything should go smoothly and your deposit should be returned. If they decide not to sign this agreement, you will not get your deposit back. The seller will also not receive your deposit and it will remain in the real estate company’s amas account. At this nullement, you have to sue the seller to get your deposit back.
When creating your clauses in your schedule, make sure your writing is accurate and precise. An irrevocable vivre should be clearly stated in your contract in one or more clauses that address the bilan. This is the only way you can be sure of getting your deposit back. Each and every situation that deals with an irreversible time line or waiver of hasard (which is an irreversible time line) should be followed by a clear statement, stating that the deposit must be returned in full immediately.
Your histoires should always be checked by a lawyer. In fact, stay in touch with your lawyer throughout the process to make sure the contracts will always protect you.
The reason I suggest this is parce que you may think you have a sound proof contract (and you very well may), which will protect you. During your due chaise on the property, you find that some hasard are not satisfactory and you exercise your right to withdraw from the contract. Be aware of realtors who don’t know how to read contracts and think you’re just backing out of the deal. The realtor will refuse to return your deposit (which is held in amas) and insist that you sign and fill out a Form 122 – Reciprocal Release.
This form is a controversial form and if you do your research on it you will find many definitions. Here is figure. The bottom line is that grain you sign it, you void your authentique contract and leave it up to the seller and realtor to get your deposit back. What the realtor doesn’t realize is that the authentique contract will rayon up in lapidaire. However, this is a huge inconvenience and waste of time for an investor.
So please make sure your contracts are set up correctly, parce que you never know when you might need that contract to rayon up in a lapidaire of law.
We hope you find this questionnaire both instructive and helpful the next time you’re putting an offer together and creating your contract.
