Real Estate Clause for Covid-19 Corona Virus

Real Estate Clause for Covid-19 Corona Virus

Hi Global Family !

Hoping everyone out there is safe and secure with their families. I just wanted to share with my colleagues and web friends that are in the middle of a real estate transaction a Corona Covd-19 clause you could use as part of your contract. This was shared with me by my managing broker and I thought it would be very useful for everyone out there. If i can help support you in any way, please feel free to reach out to me. I am positive this will all pass and this is a good time for us to self reflect and appreciate our blessings as well as our families.

Kind Regards,

"The parties agree and acknowledge that in the event that either the Buyer, Buyer’s lender, the Seller, or either of their respective legal counsel, the Land Title Office or other necessary government agency becomes the subject of a voluntary or mandatory COVID-19 virus quarantine or closure prior to the Completion Date that results in the Buyer’s or Seller’s inability to perform their obligations on the Completion Date, the Completion Date shall be extended to the day that is ten (10) business days following the day that the quarantine or closure order is lifted by the applicable government authority or authorities as the case may be (the “Extended Completion Date”). Provided however that if the Extended Completion Date is greater than sixty (60) business days from the original Completion Date then unless the parties otherwise agree in writing, this contract will be at an end, and neither party will have any further obligations to the other, and any deposit being held shall be forthwith released  to the Buyer. In the event that the original completion date is extended pursuant to this provision the parties agree that adjustment and possession dates will be extended to the same date as the extended completion date.
