Legal Answers
29 Questions Answered
Q. If I have a written offer on a home, is the seller by law allowed to accept other offers?
A: It depends. If it is an offer for less than the full asking price, you can accept other offers. If it is an offer with conditions, then you can accept other offers. However, if it is a full price offer with no conditions, then you may not. If you are under contract, you may not.
Q. I have property I wish to sell. Does New Jersey law mandate any minimum length of contract I enter with a realtor?
A: There is no law that governs the term of a listing agreement. It is negotiable.
Q. If a deal on a house falls through due to home inspection issues due those issues need to be disclosed to future buyers?
A: Your realtor is correct. A seller of residential real estate has a legal duty to disclose all known defects to potential buyers. The NJ Supreme Court has expressly ruled that caveat emptor (let the buyer beware) is not the law of this state and that there is an affirmative duty to disclose known latent conditions that would affect the value of the property or a reasonable buyer's decision to purchase. Not disclosing a defect is fraud.
