Is your Letter of Intent Binding or Non-Binding?
Remember, getting a contract and replacing the title with Letter of Intent won’t make it a legitimate letter of intent. And that’s exactly what people often do, maybe considering the reassuring character of the document title. So in this case, they should skip the step of writing a letter of intent and write directly a contract. As far as the letter of intent does not contain provisions we must encounter in a contract to qualify it as is, you’re safe. Indeed, a letter of intent is an agreement to agree, stating that both parties are looking for a deal that will be effective should only certain circumstances happen, like a definitive agreement being executed.
“Terms of this letter of intent are valid until (a certain date, usually 30, 60, or 90 days; or any other circumstance happens).” or “Terms of this letter of intent are informational until they become contractual should a definitive agreement be executed.” or “Terms of this letter of intent will become effective and enforceable when a definitive agreement is executed.”
The latter examples are still binding somehow, but the secret tour de mainis they rely upon the occurrence of a given event, whether a definitive agreement or a deadline. Once this letter is received, the receiving party can then act on the information the corresponding party provided in the letter of intent with confidence.The purpose(s) of a letter of intent may include: to outline key points of a proposed transaction, to declare officially that the negotiations are currently in progress, to put other monetary offers on hold until the first offer is either accepted or rejected. Once a letter of intent is recieved, its expected that seller or sellers lawyer respond.
Proof of Funds Service
A proof of funds is a document prepared by a financial institution that affirms that an individual or business entity has the funds on hand to enter into a given financial transaction. A document of this type is sometimes prepared at the request of a seller who is considering an offer from a buyer. The seller requests the proof through the buyer, who in turn authorizes his or her bank or other institution to provide data that confirms the ability to honor the terms of the transaction.

An escrow is:
- an arrangement made under contractual provisions between transacting parties, whereby an independent trusted third party receives and disburses money and/or documents for the transacting parties, with the timing of such disbursement by the third party dependent on the fulfillment of contractually-agreed conditions by the transacting parties, or
- an account established by a broker, under the provisions of license law, for the purpose of holding funds on behalf of the broker’s principal or some other person until the consummation or termination of a transaction; or,
- a trust account held in the borrower’s name to pay obligations such as property taxes and insurance premiums.
The word derives from the Old French word escroue, meaning a scrap of paper or a roll of parchment; this indicated the deed that a third party held until a transaction was completed.
Licensed escrow companies
One way to avoid escrow fraud is to use a Government Agency authorized escrow company (UK),or a State licensed escrow company (US).

These companies are regulated by national or state authorities and must undergo constant scrutiny, and hold funds in bank accounts fully protected by law or have bonds that ensure customers can recoup money lost in the escrow process.

A contract is an agreement entered into voluntarily by two parties or more with the intention of creating a legal obligation, which may have elements in writing, though contracts can be made orally. The remedy for breach of contract can be “damages” or compensation of money. In equity, the remedy can be specific performance of the contract or an injunction. Both of these remedies award the party at loss the “benefit of the bargain” or expectation damages, which are greater than mere reliance damages, as in promissory estoppel. The parties may be natural persons or juristic persons. A contract is a legally enforceable promise or undertaking that something will or will not occur. The word promise can be used as a legal synonym for contract., although care is required as a promise may not have the full standing of a contract, as when it is an agreement without consideration. Contract law varies greatly from one jurisdiction to another, including differences in common law compared to civil law, the impact of received law, particularly from England in common law countries, and of law codified in regional legislation. Regarding Australian Contract Law for example, there are 40 relevant acts which impact on the interpretation of contract at the Commonwealth (Federal / national) level, and an additional 26 acts at the level of the state of NSW. In addition there are 6 international instruments or conventions which are applicable for international dealings, such as the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (Vienna Sales Convention) See some of our items for sale.
