The right of first refusal

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

The right of first refusal to purchase clause on a lease may seem clear at the time a lease is negotiated and it is usually viewed as an incentive to the tenant since it does not cost anything. However, a right of first refusal, unless it is very clearly stated on the lease, might complicate matters.

The right of first refusal gives the option to the tenant that before the landlord/seller can sell the property, the tenant must be given the opportunity to purchase it for the same price, terms, and conditions as the offer received from an outside third party.

1. The lease shall state a specific amount of days for the tenant to respond as to whether he accepts or rejects his right to purchase the property.

2. The lease must give certain amount of days for the tenant to have the purchase contract drawn and executed after he/she is notified of an outside offer has been received

3. The provision should state if this is a one-time right or if it continues during the term of the lease for every offer the landlord receives.

4. The third party offer must be in writing and signed by the prospective buyer before it is presented to the tenant for his consideration.

5. One of the complications that it may occur is that if the tenant declines to meet the price being offered by the outside third party, and later on the property closes a a lower price, after the initial agreed price is reduced due to defects found during inspection period, the tenant may claim he was not given the opportunity to buy at the lower price.

6. All communications must be transmitted in writing and are time sensitive.

7. The lease shall define very clearly if any sale to a third party is going to be subject to the existing lease or if tenant or landlord may have the right to terminate the lease at the time of the sale.

Any Realtor® taking a listing with a lease in place should be made aware by the owner if a right of first refusal is in effect. The Realtor® should review these provisions and clearly understands whether or not the listing Realtor® would be entitled to a commission in case such right of first refusal is exercised by the exiting tenant. The Realtor® should be prepared to assist owner/landlord navigate these troubled waters.

Is your Florida home ready for showings?

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

Your Florida home is hitting the market and you want to make sure your property looks in tip-top condition. As we say, a little goes a long way! Here are some tips that can help you sell faster by making your home more appealing to potential buyers:

CHECK THE ROOF – Doing a roof inspection prior to receiving a contract, may put you in a strong position to negotiate with full knowledge of one of the most important aspects when calculating a purchase price. You will also have the advantage of fixing any possible leaks before the rainy season starts and this will prevent possible damage to the interior ceiling of the home.

CHECK THE WINDOWS AND DOORS – Check the windows and doors for proper closure. Cracks will allow warm air entering the home during the hot months, which makes the air conditioning work harder and will increase the electricity bill. Many buyers ask for an estimate of the monthly electricity bill as reference of the air conditioning working capacity.

DRIVEWAY – Power-wash the driveway, get rid of grime and dead twigs. First impressions are powerful. The driveway would be the first thing a potential buyer sees when visiting the property.

FRONT DOOR – A fresh coat of paint to the front door does miracles for the “look” of the home. The front door is the face of the home, show always a smiling face.

GUTTERS – Have the gutters cleaned. Get rid of leaves and other dirt settled in the gutters. This debris may obstruct the flow of water and may clog the gutters. The excess water may overflow back onto the property or may create leaks.

TRIM AND PRUME – As temperatures start to rise is the best time to trim trees and invest in that landscaping project that is always put aside for the benefit of other updates to the inside of the home. Just a bit of trimming and planting of some flowering will give a majestic look to any home.

GARAGE – Unclutter the garage of all those “precious treasures” that have not been put to use for years. A clean, spacious garage increases the size of the home in the eyes of the viewer.

SMOKER DETECTORS – Most owners do forget to check smoke detectors. Ensuring that the smoke detectors are functional, will demonstrate your interest in all aspects of the family well-being.
