Truest Choices for the Building Contracts

A provisional purchase contract contains the agreements that you have made with the selling party. It may happen that not everything runs as you had expected and that the purchase cannot continue. For such situations you include resolutive conditions in your purchase contract. These come in all shapes and sizes. In this article I will tell you everything about one of the most important resolutive conditions: subject to financing. Visiting the will make things easier for you.

Dissolve the provisional purchase contract

A ‘provisional purchase contract’ may sound free of obligation, but it is less provisional than the term suggests. After a legal consideration of a few days, the contract is binding. If you still want to withdraw, you must pay 10% of the purchase price. Often a hefty amount, which you naturally are not waiting for, to prevent this, you can include resolutive conditions in your purchase contract. These are (you guessed it), conditions with which you can terminate your purchase contract. Even after the statutory reflection period.

Arrange your mortgage

The offer you have made for your dream house has been accepted? That is of course super good news. You are almost there, but not yet completely. First you have to finalize your mortgage. There is always a small chance that this will not work. Maybe you have not properly checked how much you can borrow or something is happening that makes your maximum mortgage lower than you thought. In such cases, the resolutory condition ‘subject to financing’ can be a solution.

Only if you can get the loan

With this condition in your purchase contract you have a stick at the door, should you not get the mortgage that you need. If, for this reason, you do not allow the purchase to continue, you must be able to prove that this is really the reason that you are terminating the contract. You often have to show that at least two different lenders do not want to give you the loan you need to buy the house.

Why subject to financing?

Subject to financing, it is almost always included in the provisional purchase contract. Even if you are almost certain that you can get the mortgage. It is always handy to have it in your contract. Your financing is often not yet complete when you bid on a house, so there is always a small chance that it might not work. You can see this resolutive condition as “just in case”. Should something happen to your financing? Then you will be happy that you have included this in your contract. It saves a lot of money.

How long is it valid for?

Subject to financing, it cannot be kept indefinitely. The provisional purchase contract usually states a date on which the resolutive condition expires. Subject to funding, this is usually 6 to 8 weeks. My mortgage advisors do everything to ensure that your financing is completed within that period. Started applying for your mortgage too late? Did something else come up or do you, due to circumstances, need a little longer to complete your financing? Sometimes you can extend the period in consultation with the seller.

A greater chance of your dream house

Buying a house in the current housing market can sometimes be frustrating. You are almost never the only one who is interested in a house and often you have to outbid the odds.
