A contractor assigns a registered contractor to perform “preliminary work to conduct the land review, including soil review, plan development, comprehensive plans and specifications for the application and obtain the necessary approvals” for $25,000 before entering into a construction contract. There are three generally accepted categories of preliminary contracts, although a fourth has recently been subject to further judicial review. NB The term “preliminary contract” can also be used for a contract for preliminary work such as preparation, definition, construction of access roads, etc. The owner or developer is required to deliver the property on time and in accordance with the specifications agreed in the preliminary contract and to transfer ownership of the property. A new case illustrates the effects of the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) of an unintethced Class 4 agreement, which are considered binding on the performance of a pro forma contract and not on the date the formal sales contract was executed. The completion date of the main contract is usually set in the provisional agreement. If this is not the case, the main contract should be concluded within a reasonable time at the request of a party. The duration of the pre-agreement should also be explicitly agreed. If neither party requests the conclusion of the main contract, the interim contract expires on the agreed date. If a deadline is not set, the interim agreement applies for a reasonable period of time. It can be difficult to determine what constitutes a reasonable period of time. The use of the interim agreement can be done informally, i.e. it can even be oral.

Continued negotiations can also be seen as an unspoken obligation to conclude the main contract. The pre-contract formalizes the promise to sell and purchase the parties` real estate in a transaction. With the signature, the seller and buyer are legally required. Then you have to buy the apartment at the agreed price. And with the exception of exceptions in the law or in the treaty, it is difficult, if not impossible, to move away from a preliminary contract without financial and legal consequences. Sometimes the document is referred to as a pre-construction contract, work preparation contract, offer, contract, pre-contract, estimate, preliminary offer, acceptance of tender or approved contract application. The preliminary contract defines the essential elements of the transaction, such as the sale price and identity of the property in question, its address and a detailed description (floors, rooms, etc.) with the dates of the land registry and the date of the final contract. It should also define all reciprocal obligations that must be fulfilled before the property is handed over. In the case of the sale of real estate under construction, the law provides for specific rules for the preparation of the preliminary contract. It is not mandatory for the pre-contract to be issued by a notary, but it is nevertheless useful to let a notary determine the obligations that flow from it.

At the time of registration of the contract, the following taxes must be paid; they are recovered at the time of the signing of the final contract: this category of agreements is highlighted by the ongoing dispute between Archer Capital and The Sage Group plc concerning the withdrawal of the British technology company from the acquisition of MYOB in August 2011, after accepting their written offer to the company, described as “in accordance with the contract”. Arises for which an agreement is reached on all conditions, but compliance with one or more conditions depends on the execution of a formal document.
