In some cases, owners are surprised to learn that the cost of arbitration was higher than if the controversy were resolved in a Florida court. That`s why I always tell my clients never to sign documents related to a real estate transaction until I have the opportunity to verify them. Even a “simple” listed agreement can come back to bite it. However, in Florida, listing agreements will, in most cases, be a provision of the listing contract that repeals the usual practice of filing a breach action in the courthouse. In the agreement, there will be a “dispute resolution provision” that will likely state that the parties will first attempt to resolve claims or controversies through non-binding mediation. If mediation fails, the parties are free to negotiate their affairs. The seller acknowledges that the broker can act as a transaction intermediary, both for the seller and for a buyer. The Seller acknowledges that the Broker may have or receive offers for other real estate in competition with the Property, and potential buyers may purchase such competitive property through the Broker. Seller declares that, unless otherwise stated in writing, Seller is not aware of the following: (i) a registered formal notice with respect to the property; (ii) overdue amounts due in connection with a loan or other commitment secured by the property; (iii) bankruptcy, bankruptcy or similar proceedings concerning ownership; (iv) disputes, arbitrations, administrative measures, administrative investigations or other pending or imminent measures that may affect or affect the ownership or the Seller`s ability to transfer them; and (v) any ongoing, pending or proposed special assessments affecting the property. The seller undertakes to immediately inform the broker in writing if the seller becomes aware of any of these items during the offer period or an extension. The seller is of the opinion that the seller offers the property, in accordance with anti-discrimination laws, on a federal, state and local manner, and the list price will produce sufficient resources to satisfy all mortgages and pledges on the property and pay all closing costs.
Exclusive right of sale with exclusion – but as before, there are parties who are excluded from the contract. So let`s say a homeowner is talking to a neighbor about buying the property, but they want to list it while the neighbor “thinks about it.” .
