Real Estate Boilerplate Contract Fundamentals


Ensure traditional boilerplate clauses aren't missing from the document that would be needed if the contract is to be enforced.

Often glossed over or relegated in importance to other sections of a real estate purchase agreement, the contract boilerplate serves a number of vital purposes. Real estate contract boilerplate is much more than just a part of the form. While no party expects to enforce a contract when it enters into the contract, the contract boilerplate could be dispositive in the outcome of the case. In addition, there could be traditional boilerplate clauses that are missing from the document that would be needed if the contract is to be enforced. All parties should understand the issues and ramifications of the boilerplate as, despite its name, the boilerplate may need to be retooled for a particular transaction. No party wants to win or lose a case that hangs on the inclusion and drafting of contract ... or be subject to adroit lawyers exploiting poor boilerplate to avoid performing under a purchase agreement.
