Buyers have the option of including a condition that the offer is conditional on receiving a satisfactory domestic inspection report. If the home inspector identifies an expensive repair, for example. B Water identification, faulty electrical wiring or form, the buyer has the option to detach himself from the agreement if he does not want to bear the repair costs. Sometimes the seller will agree to pay the cost of repairing the defect, in order to prevent the buyer from terminating the transaction. Note that these examples only scratch the surface in terms of the depth of a purchase and sale contract. Always seek legal advice if there is a part of the agreement that you do not understand, especially before completion. It is important to note that when the intention of a legal action seeking the release of the amount of the deposit will only be done if the purchaser has not refused to conclude the agreement without legal cause. Iyer v. Pleasant Developments Inc.  210 O.A.C 90. In Iyer v.
Pleasant Developments Inc., the Ontario Divisional Court set out the following principles regarding the essential legal characteristics of a surety in the event of a late payment by a purchaser; Regardless of the acquisition of assets or shares of a company (see our article: Asset Sale vs. Share Sale), the first step is to negotiate and design the GSP. The GSP is sometimes prepared by real estate agents, brokers or even the parties themselves. However, it is customary and recommended that lawyers be retained to prepare or at least verify the GSP before the parties sign. At this point, the buyer and seller will likely have had preliminary discussions on the main terms (for example. B purchase price, asset or sale of shares), or even have written a non-binding letter of intent setting out all essential conditions. The lawyers are then tasked with negotiating and repairing the details of the GSP. The parties must also agree on a deadline, which is the date on which the transfer of ownership is officially carried out. The deadline for submission is often 30 to 60 days after the signing of the GSP, but this depends on the circumstances of the parties. It is important to know in detail which and fixtures are included in the purchase.
