Real Estate Holdbacks Terms by Kahane Law Office

Protect Real Estate buyers…. Other than to sue in court, a real estate purchaser has little protection without a specific hold back term in their real estate purchase contract. Without a hold back term, the standard AREA contract does not allow a buyer to hold back funds to offset damage or something that is not done in the contract. The alternative is to sue for breach of contract. It is not to say that they would not win, but the cost and time can make this a less desirable option.
