This difference is mind blowing. Many commercial transactions involve tenants on property. It is the mismanagement of the real estate agent is not to obtain estoppel tenant certificates. I had a case that started after the large law firm failed to get a certificate from Estoppel on the sale of a large hotel because it was a „small lease“. While the deal was very amusing, this little lease cost the hotel hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary litigation. Estoppel certificates are an important part of most commercial real estate transactions, as they are a legally binding document in which a tenant represents or promises certain things regarding his lease. The subjects usually presented in an Estoppel certificate relate to the tenant`s report to the lessor and the status at the time of certification under certain rental conditions. The AIR agreement and the CAR agreement also differ with regard to estoppel certificates. The CAR agreement is more restrictive because it requires the seller`s approval for any transfer of the buyer`s interest in the agreement.

From a practical point of view, the buyer can give in because it would probably be unreasonable for the seller to withhold consent. But this clause can give rise to unnecessary litigation if the seller wants to play games. The CAR clause is included in paragraph 30 and contains a relevant part: it is important to check each sales contract of the specific language it contains with regard to the elimination of contingencies, since the buyer`s down payment is generally not refunded after the buyer`s contingencies have been removed or cancelled. Emergency distances can be passive or active in the sales contract depending on the language. The Air and CAR forms differ in the sale of a signed sales and sale agreement. The AIR agreement does not require the seller`s consent for a buyer to waive his rights to the agreement. This makes it much easier for Treuhand to change the buyer into an LLC owned by the buyer or a third party so that the buyer can make a quick flip. Paragraph 1.1 of the AIR agreement provides, in the last part of 1.1, that the buyer can give up the contract, but obliges the seller to expressly release the buyer (which means hardly much). As with most things, there is more than one way to do it. The AIR and CAR agreements both do the job.

From my point of view, the two are the same as soon as I change them. And if people want to violate the treaty or complain, nothing can stop it. A competent lawyer can, however, help eliminate some of the variables. Commercial brokers (especially if they represent a seller, will likely use the AIR form. Switch grids (brokers who sell both residential and commercial buildings) will likely use what they have on their computer — the CAR form. The conclusion of the trust fund is another important element of any sales contract, and the AIR agreement and the CAR agreement contain different languages for the conclusion of the trust.
