A wise real estate attorney once told us that as long as all parties are in agreement and wanting the transaction to move forward.....a tangle of timetables...missing a day due to unforeseen circumstances....does not void the contract.
Key words..."as long as all parties are in agreement." There can be reasons...the Emergency Room trip...not planned. The illness or unexpected trip.
While we can say that anyone can use digital signatures and at this time in the evolution of technology...there is almost NO excuse for not returning documents signed by the times that are given in the contract...now and then, life gets in the way...and there are circumstances beyond anyone's control.
You can be the agent who rolls with it...and explains to your Buyers or Sellers...that "life DID get in the way"....things happen....and things will move ahead. OR you can choose to send emails, make phone calls, call everyone on the planet to make sure that your point is made...and that you know what the "correct" timing is....and expect it to be followed. There is almost always...a Plan B.....Getting everyone's blood pressure
rising....Moving to the "attack" rather than cooperate mode...is probably not the best solution.
"When all parties cooperate...."
have sweeter words ever been spoken in a transaction?
