Escape Clause

Real Estate Agent with Frank Rubi Real Estate
For lack of a better name.  Thats what I am calling it.  I hate to do back up offers, tying my client up, and along comes a house she likes.  I finally wised up and now include this in any back up offers.  This allows us flexibility to move on on our terms.  Call it a reverse predication also I guess.

Any time I wrote a BU offer, which has only happened a few times over the years when the primary was in trouble, I include a requirement that we have a "RELEASE" signed by the seller so that, if the buyer wants to move on, we don't have any trouble getting the earnest money released. 

The RELEASE works as notice that the buyer has moved on.

Can't Imagine having a back-up offer without a protective clause like this for a Buyer....Back Up Offer Addendums are available that cover this in our State (IN).

John, this is a good idea. Plus the protection it provides for your client. Good reminder.
