We recently had occasion to tailor a residential broker form for the purchase of a small commercial building to be used as a restaurant. While a new, custom made agreement was initially advised (and actually, would not have been more costly for our client), the Seller was insisting we use his broker’s “standard form” and our client did not want to lose the deal. So, we got out our “needle and thread” and went to work. After crossing out inapplicable provisions such as home warranties and Ohio Residential Disclosure Form disclosures, we found the following major provisions conspicuously absent, most of which are not found in standard, off the rack forms, and incorporated them into a short addendum. (Of course, each transaction is different, and we are not advising the following are appropriate or comprehensive enough for every transaction).
