POST HURRICANE IRMA REAL ESTATE INFORMATION
FOR SELLERS: Most standard Florida real estate contracts require the seller to make storm related repairs up to 1.5% of the purchase price. If the cost of damage exceeds that amount and the seller refuses to pay the additional expense, the buyer has a right to back out of the contract and have their full deposit returned.
FOR BUYERS: You have a right to have the property re-inspected after a storm to make sure it’s in the same condition it was when you signed the contract.
** IT'S ALWAYS BEST TO CONSULT AN ATTORNEY FOR LEGAL QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR REAL ESTATE CONTRACT
