Propety is an economic term denoting the legal transfer of property from one party to the other party, in exchange for money. Property can be transferred either voluntarily or involuntarily. It’s a very broad area, involving many issues that must be considered. There are some very subtle, yet important differences among the various types of transfers, including sale and purchase. Propety is also commonly called contract for transfer.
Contracts for transfer are typically long, including several paragraphs and are typically drawn up as a legal document, although many can be created online. Contract for transfer generally revolves around a series of conditions and contingencies. Some examples of conditions might include length of time for which the contract is valid, name of the person or parties, closing date, amount, time limit for transfer, damages for non-performance, and other specifications. The contract is often accompanied by a waiver of claims. The waiver of claims gives the parties the right to void the contract if they are not able to perform under the contract.
Transfer in propety refers to a transfer of a property between two parties. Propety is the legal process for transfer in exchange for money. Property can be transferred through inheritance, purchase, assignment, lease, mortgage, repurchase, and a host of others. Transfer is one of those things that happen often enough that it has its own legal terminology.
In property transfer, one party transfers ownership of a particular property to another party, sometimes called a purchaser. Property is transferred when the buyer pays the seller for a specific property, then hold the title until the vendor dies or moves away. The property then becomes the possession of the purchaser. In the United States, property purchased with funds from a loan or other financial instrument is commonly referred to as “derivative property,” because it is the property transferred under a derivative transaction.
In propety transactions, there are a few important rules. The buyer must buy at an agreed price; otherwise the seller “acquires” the property at the cost of the sale and becomes the new owner. In a propety agreement, the purchaser is usually required to purchase all or a portion of the property (called a “clearanced” deal) and resell the property to the seller at a price specified in the contract. This is commonly referred to as an “assignment of trust property.” Usually a lien may be placed on the property for a pre-determined period of time in order to assure that the purchaser will make the payments.
A few states allow for “putting the property into trust” after the property has been sold. In this situation, the buyer or his representative (often called a trustee) assumes the liability of the lender and becomes the new owner. But puttings in propety contracts typically do not include assignment of trust, unless the buyer specifically authorizes such an assignment in writing. Also, because of the difficulty that can arise from a putty contract, many states have limited or no legal effects when a property is transferred in propety. Although propety transfers are fairly simple, it is often better to consult a qualified attorney prior to a transaction.
