The general term « f » has been revised and contains a provision on systems and appliances that was previously included in the supplement of optional clauses (form 22D). The provision requires the seller to repair or replace a system or device that, before closing, becomes inoperative or has defects. The revised form also gives the buyer the opportunity to make the building « practicable » within five days of closing, to verify that the seller has maintained the property, systems and appliances in accordance with the purchase and sale agreement. The general term « x » (Information Verification Period and Property Condition Disclaimer) has been divided into two separate provisions. The new general term « w » gives the buyer ten days to verify all the information of the seller or listing company. The new general term « x » (Property Condition Disclaimer) informs the seller and buyer of the condition of the property and the obligation for the parties to perform their own due diligence in the transaction. The new paragraph 7, paragraph c) (ii), gives the buyer three days to accept the seller`s proposal to reduce the purchase price. When the buyer accepts the seller`s proposal, the buyer considers that the buyer has sufficient resources to close the sale. The buyer would have to pay back additional money to compensate for the difference between the value assessed and the new purchase price. Alternatively, the buyer has the option to terminate the contract. The revised pre-check agreement (form 35P) contains a section on the seller`s name, name, email address and phone number. These coordinates support listing brokers who can facilitate several preliminary inspections for the same property. In addition, status change entry sheet (form 19) and unlisted sales cards (p.B Form 1-ULS and Form 10-ULS) have been revised to include the option of adding a « co-selling » and a « co-selling broker » when entering a sale property.
If the buyer is represented by more than one broker, as revealed in the purchase and sale agreement with the new agency Disclosure – Multiple Brokers Addendum (Form 42A), the listing company should involve both the selling broker and the co-selling broker if it changes status to be sold for listed real estate. With regard to unlisted sales, the broker entering the sale should include both the seller and, if necessary, the co-selling broker. In the listing agreement, the seller authorizes the listing company to appoint a listing broker who acts as the seller`s agent. The listing agreement provides that no other real estate agent affiliated with the listing company is an agent of the seller, except to the extent that the listing company appoints other brokers to act on behalf of the seller if necessary. If the company appoints another broker representing the seller, that agent is considered a « sub-agent » in accordance with RCW 18.86.020 (1)). Listing companies regularly appoint sub-agents to represent the seller if the stockbroker is not in town or is not available for a long period of time. The new sub-agent order (Form 1S) can be used for the listing company to appoint a sub-agent representing the seller. The date can be set for the duration of the listing agreement or for a limited period of time.
