The recent events surrounding the spread of the Covid-19 strain of the coronavirus has led to many questions about the continued enforceability of real estate contracts under the circumstances.  Rather than risk an uncertain outco...

CAR has just released an open house guide found below, as well as a new form called the Coronavirus Addendum/Amendment (Form CVA). It is now available in zipForm to use in your transactions. The form provides that when circumstances related to the coronavirus are affecting the closing date the Buyer and Seller agree to extend escrow for a default of 30 days. There is also an optional clause where the buyer and seller can mutually agree to cancel the Agreement and an additional optional clause where the buyer or seller can cancel even after removing the loan contingency if inability to fund is caused by Covid-19 related loss of income.

At C.A.R., we are trying to keep REALTORS® informed about how COVID-19 impacts you and your clients. Our biggest priority is making sure you are taking e...

(Update: Due to the impact of Covid-19, the release of the RPA will be delayed until December of 2021)

Okay while it's not SOON, December will sneak up on us faster than we would like.

While there's not much to write here, there is much here to see, and I'm seeing a lot of RED.

The year 2020 is now upon us—and word of advice, DO NOT abbreviate 2020 when signing any legal documents. Police have warned that anyone signing important documents or checks with an abbreviation of 2020, i.e. "20," could put themselves at a high risk of fraud. Writing out the date in full, as 2020, on legal documents and checks is highly recommended.

Why not abbreviate 2020?

By writing out the date as 01/01/20 (January 1, 2020), the date can be fraudulently changed to 2019, 2021, or any other date in this century.
