I have a buyer client who wants to purchase a residential rental property for investment purposes . . .

Legal Q&A | How should the transfer of rental property be addressed in an Offer to Purchase?

QUESTION: I have a buyer client who wants to purchase a residential rental property for investment purposes. I have located a suitable property that is currently rented under a lease that will expire in approximately six months. I know that the lease will transfer along with the property but I have questions about the buyer’s rights to review any leases on the property, how the security deposit will be handled, etc. I’ve read through the Offer to Purchase and Contract (form 2-T) and the only thing I can find that addresses rental property is in paragraph 9 where it states that rents for the property are prorated through the date of Settlement. Is there another form we're supposed to use?

Webinar: Is it the end of Facebook for real estate?

By now you’ve probably heard that Facebook is making major changes in response to HUD’s housing discrimination suit. For example, if you’re marketing real estate, you can no longer target age, gender, or zip code when you create a Facebook ad. So, is this the end of marketing real estate on Facebook? NO CHANCE!

In the last year, Chris Scott and Garry Creath from The Paperless Agent have developed a Facebook Ad Blueprint that leverages the power of the Facebook algorithm to build and cultivate audiences of people who “know, like, and trust you.”

If you want to learn how to use Facebook NOW to keep the emails, calls, and text messages pouring in from prospects, join us Thursday, May 30 at 12pm ET for this free training. Register here »
