Learn more about earnest Money`s return process: The Colorado Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate (AKA Purchase Contract) states that the agent who holds serious money has 5 days to give money to the one who needs to receive written instructions. This is dealt with in the “Brokerage Confirmations” sections of the purchase contact. The true language reads: “The broker agrees that if the brokerage company is the owner of the Earnest Money and, except as in §.., if the Earnest Money has not been returned upon receipt of a declaration of termination or other written termination, Earnest Money Holder will release the Earnest Money according to reciprocal written instructions. Such release of Earnest Money shall take place within five days of receipt of written instructions from Earnest Money Holder, provided that the Earnest Money cheque has been released. “BUT!!!!!! To amuse you even more, the real estate sector has adopted the Commission`s position 6, in which they say that, if there is no controversy about who receives the serious money, they want to repay the money as quickly as possible and the agent does not have to get written permission from all parties to do so.
Most companies have both parties sign, as a prudent measure, that they agree on who will receive the serious money before releasing it. It just makes sense, woe bet be it to the agent who releases the serious money, and one of the parties makes a crisis above. Safer to get the parties to agree in writing first. However, sometimes the party that gives up serious money and its agent makes it a pretty low priority on their list of things they need to do. Remember that they are grinders, that the deal is dead, and even if they know they have to release the serious money, they are not happy. In the meantime, the other party wants his money. Buyers are particularly worried because they are back in the market and they are looking for real estate and they cannot make an offer until they get their serious money back. That is why the Commission has made it very clear that it does not want red tape to slow things down in the absence of controversy. Does this sometimes put us in an uncomfortable situation? Yes. Smart agents who wouldn`t even want to come to Schnüffeldistanz to write a personal check, to cover up a perceived, if not real, mistake (that`s me, except my wife would probably dispute the “smart” claim), will move heaven and earth to get quickly signed declassifications from both sides before releasing serious money.
If you find that due to the stress of the failure of the agreement, one of your parties immediately ran to consult the yogi at the top of the mountain and not return messages. . . .
