The Process of Assignment
From the Assignor’s perspective:
- Contract: Purchaser enters into a contract with the vendor
- Purchaser decides to sell their contract i.e: to assignment
- Assignor (original purchaser) contacts Urban Realty with the following 3 questions:
-What is the value of my assignment?
-How long will it take to sell?
-What are the costs involved?
- Assignor signs listing agreement with us and we begin marketing process.
- Interested parties contact us asking for information about the unit.
- Interested party wishes to submit an offer with Urban Realty or brokerage of their choice.
- Negotiation begins (duration can be anywhere from 1 day to a month)
- Once the two parties reach an agreement, the assignee send the first deposit to secure the deal.
- Review and removal of conditions by each parties lawyers. For example: assignee mortgage per-approval, solicitors review.
- Assignee deposits the first installment as per assignment of agreement of purchase of sale.
- Removal of conditions: deal is marked firm.
- Both parties apply to a vendor for re-assignment of unit.
- Assignor pays assignment fee to vendor.
- The vendor starts communicating with the assignee (as if they were the original purchaser).
- Occupancy and final closing with vendor as per agreement of purchase of sale (as per contract).
