If it is important to you, make sure it finds its way into your real estate agreement as you make your offer… Here’s an example of a hypothetical story and I can show you to prevent it!

 

 

If it matters, put it in your real estate contract

 

When it comes to real estate deals, the devil is in the details. If it’s important to you, get it in writing in the contract, as this question is from readers highlight.

Q: The listing said that the kitchen counters were granite. I found out after moving in that they were ceramic. Can I sue? There was nothing about this written into the contract.

A: In every real estate contract there is a standard section called the “Entire Agreement” clause. It says only things expressly stated in the contract in writing are guaranteed. This means that if a clause is not included, it didn’t matter to you.

In this example, the buyer would likely not be able to sue the seller. Many listings contain qualifications that say that buyers must independently verify all information. The lesson is that if there is anything in a listing or ad about a property that is important to you, make sure it finds its way into your agreement.

 

The clearer you are, the less likely you will need to go to court later.
