What is a Sale and Purchase Agreement?
A Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) is a legally binding contract outlining the agreed-upon conditions of the buyer and seller of a property (e.g., a corporation). It is the main legal document in any sale process. In essence, it sets out the agreed elements of the deal, includes a number of important protections to all the parties involved, and provides the legal framework to complete the sale. The SPA is therefore of critical importance to both sellers and buyers.
Essentially, the sale and purchase agreement spells out all the details of the transaction so that both parties share the same understanding. Among the terms typically included in the agreement are the purchase price, the closing date, the amount of earnest money that the buyer must submit as a deposit, and the list of items that are and are not included in the sale.
A simple Purchase and Sale Agreement could help prevent some of these consequences:
|Lost time||Lost time|
|Appearing in court to clarify ownership and title||Appearing in court to clarify ownership and title|
|Lawsuit to get the full purchase price||Lawsuit over the purchase price|
|Difficult to clear your name||Title transfer is more difficult|
|Lost money||Lost money|
|The unexpected gift of property||The seller did not have a legal title|
|Liable for fees and violations||Unfair seizure of the illegal item|
|Did not get paid on time||Had to pay more money to get an item|
|Penalties for improper sale||Purchased a faulty item|
|Personal safety||Personal safety|
