The Air and CAR forms differ in the sale of a signed sales and sale agreement. The AIR agreement does not require the seller`s consent for a buyer to waive his rights to the agreement. This makes it much easier for Treuhand to change the buyer into an LLC owned by the buyer or a third party so that the buyer can make a quick flip. Paragraph 1.1 of the AIR agreement provides, in the last part of 1.1, that the buyer can give up the contract, but obliges the seller to expressly release the buyer (which means hardly much). CAR is always favourable to buyers. I like paragraph 25 because it states that a clause added by a broker (or a seller who knows all the lawyers) who is trying to change the intent of the CAR form is non-effective. If the deposit is increased, a separate CAR form is required. The CAR liquidation clause described in paragraph 25B is formulated in the same way as the AIR form, but both do not comply with Section 1671 of the Civil Code, unless they are amended. Most “commercial brokers” will use the AIR form if they represent a seller because he has passive contingencies (automatic removal). CAR forms are usually used when the broker is not part of the AIRCRE organization that concedes these forms.
The CAR form is usually cheaper for a buyer. I am a member of both organizations and I use AIR and CAR forms. I also used CAR forms for sellers, as for everything, it depends. 😊 AIR`s contract 22.2 benefits the seller if the seller wins. It provides in part that the AIR agreement requires arbitration under the commercial rules of the American Arbitration Association, requires the forfeiture of many normal rights in litigation, and requires that each arbitrator be an impartial real estate agent with at least 5 years of full-time experience, both in the real estate area and in the nature of the real estate involved. Personally, I do not want a non-lawyer (or non-judge) to make a final decision that cannot be challenged. That is why I propose to the parties not to approve the arbitration provision as set out in the AIR agreement. Property owners do not realize that the sale of their investment requires as much care as the initial acquisition. Most sellers want to move away from the property without other obligations or debts. However, there may be trading points that can bind the investor`s property for years, resulting in costly litigation, with no ability to sell the investor or leave the investor on the hook long after the sale. Even if a declaration of intent is made non-binding, as soon as it is written, it plays a key role in negotiating and documenting the formal sales contract. Errors or omissions in the MOU can very well cause problems throughout the process.
Since the CAR agreement is linked to the date of acceptance, the extension of the purchaser`s date, in order to eliminate any eventuality, does not automatically extend the deadline for the trust. Most brokers forget what a loophole can create for the seller to serve a message, to perform and perhaps notice the cancellation of the trust. This is a common practice in today`s “sellers market.” Almost all real estate purchases involve two separate negotiations.
