Assignment clause defined.

Assignment clauses are legally binding provisions in contracts that give a party the chance to engage in a transfer of ownership or assign their contractual obligations and rights to a different contracting party.

In other words, an assignment clause can reassign contracts to another party. They can commonly be seen in contracts related to business purchases.

Here’s an article about assignment clauses.

Assignment Clause Explained

Assignment contracts are helpful when you need to maintain an ongoing obligation regardless of ownership. Some agreements have limitations or prohibitions on assignments, while other parties can freely enter into them.

Here’s another article about assignment clauses.

Purpose of Assignment Clause

The purpose of assignment clauses is to establish the terms around transferring contractual obligations. The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) permits the enforceability of assignment clauses.

Assignment Clause Examples

Examples of assignment clauses include:

  • Example 1 . A business closing or a change of control occurs
  • Example 2 . New services providers taking over existing customer contracts
  • Example 3 . Unique real estate obligations transferring to a new property owner as a condition of sale
  • Example 4 . Many mergers and acquisitions transactions, such as insurance companies taking over customer policies during a merger

Here’s an article about the different types of assignment clauses.

Assignment Clause Samples

Sample 1 – sales contract.

Assignment; Survival .  Neither party shall assign all or any portion of the Contract without the other party’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided, however, that either party may, without such consent, assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, in connection with the transfer or sale of all or substantially all of the assets or business of such Party relating to the product(s) to which this Agreement relates. The Contract shall bind and inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the respective parties. Any assignment or transfer not in accordance with this Contract shall be void. In order that the parties may fully exercise their rights and perform their obligations arising under the Contract, any provisions of the Contract that are required to ensure such exercise or performance (including any obligation accrued as of the termination date) shall survive the termination of the Contract.

How To Navigate The Real Estate Assignment Contract

How to assign a contract

Assignment of contract pros and cons

Even the most left-brained, technical real estate practitioners may find themselves overwhelmed by the legal forms that have become synonymous with the investing industry. The assignment of contract strategy, in particular, has developed a confusing reputation for those unfamiliar with the concept of wholesaling. At the very least, there’s a good chance the “assignment of contract real estate” exit strategy sounds more like a foreign language to new investors than a viable means to an end.

A real estate assignment contract isn’t as complicated as many make it out to be, nor is it something to shy away from because of a lack of understanding. Instead, new investors need to learn how to assign a real estate contract as this particular exit strategy represents one of the best ways to break into the industry.

In this article, we will break down the elements of a real estate assignment contract, or a real estate wholesale contract, and provide strategies for how it can help investors further their careers. [ It's time to escape the rat race. Register to attend a free one-day investing event , where you'll learn how one secret strategy can help you create cash flow from the stock market. ]

What Is A Real Estate Assignment Contract?

A real estate assignment contract is a wholesale strategy used by real estate investors to facilitate the sale of a property between an owner and an end buyer. As its name suggests, contract assignment strategies will witness a subject property owner sign a contract with an investor that gives them the rights to buy the home. That’s an important distinction to make, as the contract only gives the investor the right to buy the home; they don’t actually follow through on a purchase. Once under contract, however, the investor retains the sole right to buy the home. That means they may then sell their rights to buy the house to another buyer. Therefore, when a wholesaler executes a contact assignment, they aren’t selling a house but rather their rights to buy a house. The end buyer will pay the wholesale a small assignment fee and buy the house from the original buyer.

The real estate assignment contract strategy is only as strong as the contracts used in the agreement. The language used in the respective contract is of the utmost importance and should clearly define what the investors and sellers expect out of the deal.

There are a couple of caveats to keep in mind when considering using sales contracts for real estate:

Contract prohibitions: Make sure the contract you have with the property seller does not have prohibitions for future assignments. This can create serious issues down the road. Make sure the contract is drafted by a lawyer that specializes in real estate assignment contract law.

Property-specific prohibitions: HUD homes (property obtained by the Department of Housing and Urban Development), real estate owned or REOs (foreclosed-upon property), and listed properties are not open to assignment contracts. REO properties, for example, have a 90-day period before being allowed to be resold.

assignment fee

What Is An Assignment Fee In Real Estate?

An assignment fee in real estate is the money a wholesaler can expect to receive from an end buyer when they sell them their rights to buy the subject property. In other words, the assignment fee serves as the monetary compensation awarded to the wholesaler for connecting the original seller with the end buyer.

Again, any contract used to disclose a wholesale deal should be completely transparent, and including the assignment fee is no exception. The terms of how an investor will be paid upon assigning a contract should, nonetheless, be spelled out in the contract itself.

The standard assignment fee is $5,000. However, every deal is different. Buyers differ on their needs and criteria for spending their money (e.g., rehabbing vs. buy-and-hold buyers). As with any negotiations , proper information is vital. Take the time to find out how much the property would realistically cost before and after repairs. Then, add your preferred assignment fee on top of it.

Traditionally, investors will receive a deposit when they sign the Assignment of Real Estate Purchase and Sale Agreement . The rest of the assignment fee will be paid out upon the deal closing.

Assignment Contract Vs Double Close

The real estate assignment contract strategy is just one of the two methods investors may use to wholesale a deal. In addition to assigning contracts, investors may also choose to double close. While both strategies are essentially variations of a wholesale deal, several differences must be noted.

A double closing, otherwise known as a back-to-back closing, will have investors actually purchase the home. However, instead of holding onto it, they will immediately sell the asset without rehabbing it. Double closings aren’t as traditional as fast as contract assignment, but they can be in the right situation. Double closings can also take as long as a few weeks. In the end, double closings aren’t all that different from a traditional buy and sell; they transpire over a meeter of weeks instead of months.

Assignment real estate strategies are usually the first option investors will want to consider, as they are slightly easier and less involved. That said, real estate assignment contract methods aren’t necessarily better; they are just different. The wholesale strategy an investor chooses is entirely dependent on their situation. For example, if a buyer cannot line up funding fast enough, they may need to initiate a double closing because they don’t have the capital to pay the acquisition costs and assignment fee. Meanwhile, select institutional lenders incorporate language against lending money in an assignment of contract scenario. Therefore, any subsequent wholesale will need to be an assignment of contract.

Double closings and contract assignments are simply two means of obtaining the same end. Neither is better than the other; they are meant to be used in different scenarios.

Flipping Real Estate Contracts

Those unfamiliar with the real estate contract assignment concept may know it as something else: flipping real estate contracts; if for nothing else, the two are one-in-the-same. Flipping real estate contracts is simply another way to refer to assigning a contract.

Is An Assignment Of Contract Legal?

Yes, an assignment of contract is legal when executed correctly. Wholesalers must follow local laws regulating the language of contracts, as some jurisdictions have more regulations than others. It is also becoming increasingly common to assign contracts to a legal entity or LLC rather than an individual, to prevent objections from the bank. Note that you will need written consent from all parties listed on the contract, and there cannot be any clauses present that violate the law. If you have any questions about the specific language to include in a contract, it’s always a good idea to consult a qualified real estate attorney.

When Will Assignments Not Be Enforced?

In certain cases, an assignment of contract will not be enforced. Most notably, if the contract violates the law or any local regulations it cannot be enforced. This is why it is always encouraged to understand real estate laws and policy as soon as you enter the industry. Further, working with a qualified attorney when crafting contracts can be beneficial.

It may seem obvious, but assignment contracts will not be enforced if the language is used incorrectly. If the language in a contract contradicts itself, or if the contract is not legally binding it cannot be enforced. Essentially if there is any anti-assignment language, this can void the contract. Finally, if the assignment violates what is included under the contract, for example by devaluing the item, the contract will likely not be enforced.

How To Assign A Real Estate Contract

A wholesaling investment strategy that utilizes assignment contracts has many advantages, one of them being a low barrier-to-entry for investors. However, despite its inherent profitability, there are a lot of investors that underestimate the process. While probably the easiest exit strategy in all of real estate investing, there are a number of steps that must be taken to ensure a timely and profitable contract assignment, not the least of which include:

Find the right property

Acquire a real estate contract template

Submit the contract

Assign the contract

Collect the fee

1. Find The Right Property

You need to prune your leads, whether from newspaper ads, online marketing, or direct mail marketing. Remember, you aren’t just looking for any seller: you need a motivated seller who will sell their property at a price that works with your investing strategy.

The difference between a regular seller and a motivated seller is the latter’s sense of urgency. A motivated seller wants their property sold now. Pick a seller who wants to be rid of their property in the quickest time possible. It could be because they’re moving out of state, or they want to buy another house in a different area ASAP. Or, they don’t want to live in that house anymore for personal reasons. The key is to know their motivation for selling and determine if that intent is enough to sell immediately.

With a better idea of who to buy from, wholesalers will have an easier time exercising one of several marketing strategies:

Direct Mail

Real Estate Meetings

Local Marketing

2. Acquire A Real Estate Contract Template

Real estate assignment contract templates are readily available online. Although it’s tempting to go the DIY route, it’s generally advisable to let a lawyer see it first. This way, you will have the comfort of knowing you are doing it right, and that you have counsel in case of any legal problems along the way.

One of the things proper wholesale real estate contracts add is the phrase “and/or assigns” next to your name. This clause will give you the authority to sell the property or assign the property to another buyer.

You do need to disclose this to the seller and explain the clause if needed. Assure them that they will still get the amount you both agreed upon, but it gives you deal flexibility down the road.

3. Submit The Contract

Depending on your state’s laws, you need to submit your real estate assignment contract to a title company, or a closing attorney, for a title search. These are independent parties that look into the history of a property, seeing that there are no liens attached to the title. They then sign off on the validity of the contract.

4. Assign The Contract

Finding your buyer, similar to finding a seller, requires proper segmentation. When searching for buyers, investors should exercise several avenues, including online marketing, listing websites, or networking groups. In the real estate industry, this process is called building a buyer’s list, and it is a crucial step to finding success in assigning contracts.

Once you have found a buyer (hopefully from your ever-growing buyer’s list), ensure your contract includes language that covers earnest money to be paid upfront. This grants you protection against a possible breach of contract. This also assures you that you will profit, whether the transaction closes or not, as earnest money is non-refundable. How much it is depends on you, as long as it is properly justified.

5. Collect The Fee

Your profit from a deal of this kind comes from both your assignment fee, as well as the difference between the agreed-upon value and how much you sell it to the buyer. If you and the seller decide you will buy the property for $75,000 and sell it for $80,000 to the buyer, you profit $5,000. The deal is closed once the buyer pays the full $80,000.

Assignment of Contract Pros

For many investors, the most attractive benefit of an assignment of contract is the ability to profit without ever purchasing a property. This is often what attracts people to start wholesaling, as it allows many to learn the ropes of real estate with relatively low stakes. An assignment fee can either be determined as a percentage of the purchase price or as a set amount determined by the wholesaler. A standard fee is around $5,000 per contract.

The profit potential is not the only positive associated with an assignment of contract. Investors also benefit from not being added to the title chain, which can greatly reduce the costs and timeline associated with a deal. This benefit can even transfer to the seller and end buyer, as they get to avoid paying a real estate agent fee by opting for an assignment of contract. Compared to a double close (another popular wholesaling strategy), investors can avoid two sets of closing costs. All of these pros can positively impact an investor’s bottom line, making this a highly desirable exit strategy.

Assignment of Contract Cons

Although there are numerous perks to an assignment of contract, there are a few downsides to be aware of before searching for your first wholesale deal. Namely, working with buyers and sellers who may not be familiar with wholesaling can be challenging. Investors need to be prepared to familiarize newcomers with the process and be ready to answer any questions. Occasionally, sellers will purposely not accept an assignment of contract situation. Investors should occasionally expect this, as to not get discouraged.

Another obstacle wholesalers may face when working with an assignment of contract is in cases where the end buyer wants to back out. This can happen if the buyer is not comfortable paying the assignment fee, or if they don’t have owner’s rights until the contract is fully assigned. The best way to protect yourself from situations like this is to form a reliable buyer’s list and be upfront with all of the information. It is always recommended to develop a solid contract as well.

Know that not all properties can be wholesaled, for example HUD houses. In these cases, there are often anti-assigned clauses preventing wholesalers from getting involved. Make sure you know how to identify these properties so you don’t waste your time. Keep in mind that while there are cons to this real estate exit strategy, the right preparation can help investors avoid any big challenges.

Assignment of Contract Template

If you decide to pursue a career wholesaling real estate, then you’ll want the tools that will make your life as easy as possible. The good news is that there are plenty of real estate tools and templates at your disposal so that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel! For instance, here is an assignment of contract template that you can use when you strike your first deal.

As with any part of the real estate investing trade, no single aspect will lead to success. However, understanding how a real estate assignment of contract works is vital for this business. When you comprehend the many layers of how contracts are assigned—and how wholesaling works from beginning to end—you’ll be a more informed, educated, and successful investor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an assignment clause.

An AC is part of a contract governing the sale of a property and other transactions. It deals with questions regarding the assignment of the property in the purchase agreement. The thrust of the assignment clause is that the buyer can rent, lease, repair, sell, or assign the property.

To “assign” simply means to hand off the benefits and obligations of a contract from one party to another. In short, it’s the transfer of contractual rights.

In-Depth Definition

Explicitly, an AC expresses the liabilities surrounding the assignment from the assignor to the assignee. The real estate contract assignment clause can take on two different forms, depending on the contract author:

  • The AC states that the assignor makes no representations or warranties about the property or the agreement. This makes the assignment “AS IS.”
  • The assignee won’t hold the assignor at fault. It protects the assignor from damages, liabilities, costs, claims, or other expenses stemming from the agreement.

The contract’s assignment clause states the “buyer and/or assigns.” In this clause, “assigns” is a noun that means assignees. It refers to anyone you choose to receive your property rights.

The assignment provision establishes the fact that the buyer (who is the assignor) can assign the property to an assignee. Upon assignment, the assignee becomes the new buyer.

The AC conveys to the assignee both the AC’s property rights and the AC’s contract obligations. After an assignment, the assignor is out of the picture.

Assignment Clause Example

This is an example of a real estate contract assignment clause :

“The Buyer reserves the right to assign this contract in whole or in part to any third party without further notice to the Seller; said assignment not to relieve the Buyer from his or her obligation to complete the terms and conditions of this contract should be assigning default.”

Assignment provision.

An assignment provision is a separate clause that states the assignee’s acceptance of the contract assignment.

Assignment Provision Example

Here is an example of an assignment provision :

“Investor, as Assignee, hereby accepts the above and foregoing Assignment of Contract dated XXXX, XX, 20XX by and between Assignor and ____________________ (seller) and agrees to assume all of the obligations and perform all of the duties of Assignor under the Contract.”

Anti-Assignment Clauses & Non-Assignment Clauses

An anti-assignment clause prevents either party from assigning a contract without the permission of the other party. It typically does so by prohibiting payment for the assignment. A non-assignment clause is another name for an anti-assignment clause.

Anti-Assignment Clause Example

This is an anti-assignment clause example from the AIA Standard Form of Agreement:

” The Party 1 and Party 2, respectively, bind themselves, their partners, successors, assigns, and legal representatives to the other party to this Agreement and to the partners, successors, assigns, and legal representatives of such other party with respect to all covenants of this Agreement. Neither Party 1 nor Party 2 shall assign this Agreement without the written consent of the other.”

Important Considerations for Assignment Contracts

The presence of an AC triggers several important considerations.

Assignment Fee

In essence, the assignor is a broker that brings together a buyer and seller. As such, the assignor collects a fee for this service. Naturally, the assignor doesn’t incur the normal expenses of a buyer.

Rather, the new buyer assumes those expenses. In reality, the assignment fee replaces the fee the realtor or broker would charge in a normal transaction. Frequently, the assignment fee is less than a regular brokerage fee.

For example, compare a 2% assignment fee compared to a 6% brokerage fee. That’s a savings of $200,000 on a $5 million purchase price. Wholesalers are professionals who earn a living through assignments.

Frequently, the assignor will require that the assignee deposit the fee into escrow. Typically, the fee is not refundable, even if the assignee backs out of the deal after signing the assignment provision. In some cases, the assignee will fork over the fee directly to the assignor.

Assignor Intent

Just because the contract contains an AC does not obligate the buyer to assign the contract. The buyer remains the buyer unless it chooses to exercise the AC, at which point it becomes the assignor. It is up to the buyer to decide whether to go through with the purchase or assign the contract.

Nonetheless, the AC signals the seller of your possible intent to assign the purchase contract to someone else. For one thing, the seller might object if you try to assign the property without an AC.

You can have serious problems at closing if you show up with a surprise assignee. In fact, you could jeopardize the entire deal.

Another thing to consider is whether the buyer’s desire for an AC in the contract will frighten the seller. Perhaps the seller is very picky about the type of buyer to whom it will sell.

Or perhaps the seller has heard horror stories, real or fake, about assignments. Whatever the reason, the real estate contract assignment clause might put a possible deal in jeopardy.

Chain of Title

If you assign a property before the closing, you will not be in the chain of title. Obviously, this differs from the case in which you sell the property five minutes after buying it.

In the latter case, your name will appear in the chain of title twice, once as the buyer and again as the seller. In addition, the latter case would involve two sets of closing costs, whereas there would only one be for the assignment case. This includes back-to-back (or double) closings.

Enforceability

Assignment might not be enforceable in all situations, such as when:

  • State law or public policy prohibits it.
  • The contract prohibits it.
  • The assignment significantly changes the expectations of the seller. Those expectations can include decreasing the value of the property or increasing the risk of default.

Also note that REO (real estate owned) properties, HUD properties, and listed properties usually don’t permit assignment contracts. An REO property is real estate owned by a bank after foreclosure. Typically, these require a 90-day period before a property can be resold.

How Assets America Can Help

The AC is a portion of a purchase agreement. When a purchase involves a commercial property requiring a loan of $10 million or greater, Assets America ® can arrange your financing.

We can finance wholesalers who decide to go through with a purchase. Alternatively, we can finance assignees as well. In either case, we offer expedient, professional financing and many supporting services. Contact us today for a confidential consultation.

What rights can you assign despite a contract clause expressly prohibiting assignment?

Normally, a prohibition against assignment does not curb the right to receive payments due. However, circumstances may cause the opposite outcome. Additionally, prohibition doesn’t prevent the right to money that the contract specifies is due.

What is the purpose of an assignment of rents clause in a deed of trust and who benefits?

The assignment of rents clause is a provision in a mortgage or deed of trust. It gives the lender the right to collect rents from mortgaged properties if the borrower defaults. All incomes and rents from a secured property flow to the lender and offset the outstanding debt. Clearly, this benefits the lender.

What is in assignment clause in a health insurance contract?

Commonly, health insurance policies contain assignment of benefits (AOB) clauses. These clauses allow the insurer to pay benefits directly to health care providers instead of the patient. In some cases, the provider has the patient sign an assignment agreement that accomplishes the same outcome. The provider submits the AOB agreement along with the insurance claim.

What does “assignment clause” mean for liability insurance?

The clause would allow the assignment of proceeds from a liability award payable to a third party. However, the insured must consent to the clause or else it isn’t binding. This restriction applies only before a loss. After a first party loss, the insurer’s consent no longer matters.

Assets America was responsible for arranging financing for two of my multi million dollar commercial projects. At the time of financing, it was extremely difficult to obtain bank financing for commercial real estate. Not only was Assets America successful, they were able to obtain an interest rate lower than going rates. The company is very capable, I would recommend Assets America to any company requiring commercial financing.

Assets America was incredibly helpful and professional in assisting us in purchasing our property. It was great to have such knowledgeable and super-experienced, licensed pros in our corner, pros upon which we could fully rely.

My business partner and I were looking to purchase a retail shopping center in southern California.  We sought out the services of Ronny, CFO of Assets America.  Ronny found us several commercial properties which met our desired needs.  We chose the property we liked best, and Ronny went to work. He negotiated very aggressively on our behalf.

REtipster does not provide legal advice. The information in this article can be impacted by many unique variables. Always consult with a qualified legal professional before taking action.

An assignment or assignment of contract is a way to profit from a real estate transaction without becoming the owner of the property.

The assignment method is a standard tool in a real estate wholesaler’s kit and lowers the barrier to entry for a real estate investor because it does not require the wholesaler to use much (or any) of their own money to profit from a deal.

Contract assignment is a common wholesaling strategy where the seller and the wholesaler (acting as a middleman in this case) sign an agreement giving the wholesaler the sole right to buy a property at a specified price, within a certain period of time.

The wholesaler then finds another buyer and assigns the contract to him or her. The wholesaler isn’t selling the property to the end buyer because the wholesaler never takes title to the property during the process. The wholesaler is simply selling the contract, which gives the end buyer the right to buy the property in accordance with the original purchase agreement.

In doing this, the wholesaler can earn an assignment fee for putting the deal together.

Some states require a real estate wholesaler to be a licensed real estate agent, and the assignment strategy can’t be used for HUD homes and REOs.

The process for assigning a contract follows some common steps. In summary, it looks like this:

  • Find the right property.
  • Get a purchase agreement signed.
  • Find an end buyer.
  • Assign the contract.
  • Close the transaction and collect your assignment fee.

We describe each step in the process below.

1. Find the Right Property

This is where the heavy lifting happens—investors use many different marketing tactics to find leads and identify properties that work with their investing strategy. Typically, for wholesaling to work, a wholesaler needs a motivated seller who wants to unload the property as soon as possible. That sense of urgency works to the wholesaler’s advantage in negotiating a price that will attract buyers and cover their assignment fee.

RELATED: What is “Driving for Dollars” and How Does It Work?

2. Get a Purchase Agreement Signed

Once a motivated seller has agreed to sell their property at a discounted price, they will sign a purchase agreement with the wholesaler. The purchase agreement needs to contain specific, clear language that allows the wholesaler (for example, you) to assign their rights in the agreement to a third party.

Note that most standard purchase agreements do not include this language by default. If you plan to assign this contract, make sure this language is included. You can consult an attorney to cover the correct verbiage in a way that the seller understands it.

RELATED: Wholesaling Made Simple! A Comprehensive Guide to Assigning Contracts

This can’t be stressed enough: It’s extremely important for a wholesaler to communicate with their seller about their intent to assign the contract. Many sellers are not familiar with the assignment process, so if the role of the buyer is going to change along the way, the seller needs to be aware of this on or before they sign the original purchase agreement.

3. Find an End Buyer

This is the other half of a wholesaler’s job—marketing to find buyers. Once they find an end buyer, the wholesaler can assign the contract to the new party and work with the original seller and the end buyer to schedule a closing date.

4. Assign the Contract

Assigning the contract works through a simple assignment agreement. This agreement allows the end buyer to step into the wholesaler’s shoes as the buyer in the original contract.

In other words, this document “replaces” the wholesaler with the new end buyer.

Most assignment contracts include language for a nonrefundable deposit from the end buyer, which protects the wholesaler if the buyer backs out. While you can download assignment contract templates online, most experts recommend having an attorney review your contracts. The assignment wording has to be precise and comply with applicable local laws to protect you from issues down the road.

5. Close the Transaction and Collect the Assignment Fee

Finally, you will receive your assignment fee (or wholesale fee) when the end buyer closes the deal.

The assignment fee is often the difference between the original purchase price (the price that the seller agreed with the wholesaler) and the end buyer’s purchase price (the price the wholesaler agreed with the end buyer), but it can also be a percentage of it or even a flat amount.

According to UpCounsel, most contract assignments are done for about $5,000, although depending on the property and the market, it could be higher or lower.

IMPORTANT: the end buyer will see precisely how much the assignment fee is. This is because they must sign two documents that show the original price and the assignment fee: the closing statement and the assignment agreement, respectively, to close the transaction.

In many cases, if the assignment fee is a reasonable amount relative to the purchase price, most buyers won’t take any issue with the wholesaler taking their fee—after all, the wholesaler made the deal happen, and it’s compensation for their efforts. However, if the assignment fee is too big (such as the wholesaler taking $20,000 from an original purchase price of $10,000, while the end buyer buys it for $50,000), it may ruffle some feathers and lead to uncomfortable questions.

In these instances where the wholesaler has a substantially higher profit margin, a wholesaler can instead do a double closing . In a double closing, the wholesaler closes two separate deals (one with the seller and another with the buyer) on the same day, but the seller and buyer cannot see the numbers and overall profit margin the wholesaler makes between the two transactions. This makes a double closing a much safer way to conclude a transaction.

Assigning contracts is a way to lower the barrier to entry for many new real estate investors; because they don’t need to put up their own money to buy a property or assume any risk in financing a deal.

The wholesaler isn’t part of the title chain, which streamlines the process and avoids the hassle of closing two times. Compared to the double-close strategy, assignment contracts require less paperwork and are usually less costly (because there is only one closing occurring, rather than two separate transactions).

On the downside, the wholesaler has to sell the property as-is, because they don’t own it at any point and they cannot make repairs or renovations to make the property look more attractive to a potential buyer. Financing may be much more difficult for the end buyer because many mortgage lenders won’t work with assigned contracts. Purchase Agreements also have expiration dates, which means the wholesaler has a limited window of time to find an end buyer and get the deal done.

Being successful with assignment contracts usually comes down to excellent marketing, networking, and communication between all parties involved. It’s all about developing strategies to find the right properties and having a solid network of investors you can assign them to quickly.

It’s also critical to be aware of any applicable laws in the jurisdiction where the wholesaler is working and holding any licenses required for these kinds of real estate transactions.

Assignment of Contract in Real Estate [And Or Assigns]

Assignment of Contract in Real Estate

Most people think that the only way to start real estate investing is to either:

  • Pay a down payment of 10-20% from your own savings and finance the rest
  • Partner with another investor and do a joint venture

Assignment of Contract in Real Estate

The common thread between the options?

A large amount of money paid upfront, coming from your own pocket.

If you don't have a large amount of cash put away, you wonder how you'd ever get your start.

Are you just doomed to watching as investment opportunities pass you by?

Of course not!

There is a third option, a legitimate way of investing in real estate without a money down: real estate assignment contracts.

With assignment contracts, you are not purchasing the property outright; instead, what you are doing is getting the exclusive right to purchase a property within a certain timeframe, an investing strategy referred to as wholesaling.

Some wholesalers choose to put up an earnest money when securing the right to buy a property from a seller, but it is not required . All you have to do is to show up with a real estate contract and an offer to purchase the property for a specified amount by a specified closing date.

However, not all real estate contracts are written the same.

For wholesaling to be a lucrative investing strategy, you have to add a special provision to the purchase agreement before presenting it to the seller: t he assignment clause .

What Is an Assignment Clause in a Real Estate Contract?

An assignment clause in a purchase and sale agreement in real estate gives the original buyer (the assigning party) the ability to "assign" or transfer the rights to purchase a property to a new buyer (the assignee).

This is done by affixing the phrase "and/or assigns" next to your name in the real estate contract.

This means that on the buyer's name, it should say: John Smith and/or assigns .

As long as the seller agrees and signs the assignment contract, then it constitutes their written consent to sell the property to someone other than you.

However, if you forget to put the assignment clause, then you cannot assign the contract to someone else.

When you assign the contract to the new buyer, all the contractual obligations are transferred also, and the end buyer gets full ownership privilege once the transaction is completed.

As there is no free lunch in this economy, you get to collect an assignment fee for your troubles.

What Is an Assignment Clause in a Real Estate Contract?

Who Will Buy the Real Estate Assignment Contract?

In today's hot real estate market , house flippers, landlords, or simply buy-and-hold investors would not pass up investment opportunities such as the chance to buy real estate for lower than the market value.

For best results, it is recommended that you sell the assignment contract to all cash buyers for the following reasons:

  • They have the necessary liquidity to be able to close quickly, sometimes in as short as a week;
  • They are not dependent on financing from banks or traditional lenders, eliminating the uncertainty that they might not move forward with the deal;
  • They will buy the property as is, with no need to negotiate for repairs or ask concessions from the seller.

Sellers who enter in assignment contracts with a wholesaler are typically motivated sellers, which means they are stuck with a problem property that is either costing them money (major structural damage) or is in danger of being lost (foreclosure or bankruptcy).

In any case, they need to sell fast , and this is where cash buyers can be really helpful.

How Does Assignment Work?

Generally, the entire process of real estate investing via assignment agreement goes as follows:

Find a Property Which Can Be Bought for Lower Than Market Price

Distressed properties, such as those on the brink of foreclosure, can be bought for a huge discount and thus, present an attractive investment opportunity.

First identify an area you're interested in, then scout homes showing visible damage or neglect. You can then get in touch with owners for a potential purchase.

Make an Offer on the Property

To make a suitable offer on one property you have your eye on, do your due diligence by running comps.

This means looking at comparables ("comps"), or recently sold properties similar to your target purchase in order to establish a basis for your offer. Browsing online listings, or simply driving around the neighborhood and asking around are a good source of information on comparables.

Make an Offer on the Property

Present the Purchase Agreement With “And or Assigns” Verbiage Built In

Once you're confident with your offer, present a purchase and sale agreement to the owner. It should contain the buyer and seller information, property details, purchase price, closing date, and other contingencies both parties agree on.

Don't forget to include the assignment clause, as if you forget that, the contract prohibits you from assigning the contract to another investor and you'll be on the hook to buy the property.

Assign the Contract to an End Buyer

After the original contract is signed, you, as the buyer, reserves the right to purchase the property up to a time stated in the contract.

You can then find another buyer to assign the contract to if you don't intend to go ahead with the purchase yourself.

Collect Your Assignment Fee Once the Real Estate Transaction Is Completed

Once the keys and the cash change hands, you are compensated with an assignment fee at the close.

Pros And Cons Of Having Successors And Assigns Clause In Real Estate Contracts

Pro #1: you have control over the transaction.

Having the phrase "and or assigns" after your name in the assignment contract template gives you the flexibility of transferring your purchase rights to another buyer for a fee.

In case you change your mind later on and decide to purchase and flip the property yourself for a higher profit, you are also free to do so.

Pro #2: You Can Put Together Real Estate Deals And Earn Without Having To Spend A Dime

Real estate wholesaling is also known as "contract flipping".

Compared to a full blown house flipping where you have to buy the property and spend for repairs and upgrades prior to selling it for a higher price, with assignment contracts you don't have to do anything to the property before you earn.

The only investment you have to make is your time and effort in finding motivated sellers.

Sometimes, you don't even have to set foot on the property nor even see it with your own eyes before you sell your buying rights to another investor!

Such is the power of a real estate assignment contract.

Pro #2: You Can Put Together Real Estate Deals And Earn Without Having To Spend A Dime

Pro #3: The Parties Involved Can Have Huge Savings On Realtor's Fees

The buyer's and seller's agent will each get 3% commission off the purchase price. For illustrative purposes, say a house sells for $300,000, realtor fees are a whopping $18,000 (6% of the purchase price).

On the other hand, a real estate wholesaler's assignment fee typically maxes out at $7,000 , making it attractive for house flippers and other investors. They get a nice investment property at a discount without breaking sweat since it's a wholesaler who found it for them.

For the owner, this means they pocket more money since they don't have to take anything off the price they have agreed to sell for.

Pro #3: The Parties Involved Can Have Huge Savings On Realtor's Fees

Pro #4: Only One Closing Cost Needs To Be Paid

After the assignment of contract to the new buyer takes place, you immediately take yourself out of the equation, and the transaction ultimately happens between the seller and the end buyer.

This means the following:

  • only one set of paperwork is to be filed;
  • only the buyer and seller's names appear in the property chain of title; and,
  • only one transaction takes place, so the closing cost only needs to be paid once.

Pro #5: The Wholesale Deal Is Completely Transparent

Honesty and transparency are the hallmarks of a good business person.

If you're a newbie venturing out into your first deal, there's no one yet to vouch for you so you're relying on your word to build your reputation.

It is better to inform the seller beforehand that you intend to transfer the purchasing rights for a profit so that they wouldn't be shocked if another person shows up at the closing table.

Pro #6: You Develop a Network of Real Estate Sellers, Buyers, and Investors

Pro #6: You Develop a Network of Real Estate Sellers, Buyers, and Investors

There is a well-known saying that goes: "Your network is your net worth."

And it is very true in this line of business. Since wholesaling is mainly facilitating the sale of investment properties between buyers and sellers , you need to have a lot of social capital, which means you need to know a lot of people.

Wholesaling real estate allows you to rapidly expand your network, opening up plenty of opportunities for you down the line.

Con #1: If One Party Backs Out Of The Deal, It Would Reflect Poorly On You

In flipping assignment contracts, what you are selling is something intangible.

As such, it is heavily dependent on the reliability of the parties at both ends of the deal to uphold the terms of the contract. If either one defaults and the sale falls through, you're the one who is going to look bad.

That's why it is important to have a buyers list ready so that you can have some wiggle room if something unexpected happens.

Or even better, have a backup financing option so you can buy the property yourself if your buyer backs out.

Con #2: Certain Real Estate Properties Are Not Eligible For Assignment Contracts

HUD homes and real estate owned (REO) properties typically have anti assignment clauses preventing them from being bought and sold through a contract assignment.

Con #3: Sellers May Think You're Taking Advantage Of Them

The assignment fee that you are set to receive from the deal is written into the contract for the involved parties to see.

This may turn buyers and sellers off: buyers might feel like they're paying for more than the property is actually worth; and sellers might feel like they missed out on some serious money while a wholesaler gets to make money in their financial distress.

Con #4: You Don't Get Owner's Rights

Although you have the exclusive right to buy the property, ultimately, what you have is just a piece of paper. You cannot touch the property, you cannot live in it, you cannot do any upgrades--the list of restrictions go on.

For distressed properties in a state of disrepair, it can be a challenge to sell it even to the most seasoned of house flippers.

Con #5: You Have to Deal With the Time Pressure Element

The contract states the closing date by which you have to find a buyer. This is due to sellers usually rushing to offload a property that's causing them problems, so they're operating on a short timeframe.

If you are just starting out and your network is still quite small, finding a buyer within a short period of time can be difficult.

Con #5: You Have to Deal With the Time Pressure Element

Frequently Asked Questions: Real Estate Assignment Contracts

Do you need a license to be a real estate wholesaler.

The only thing you need to keep in mind to keep everything above board and avoid legal trouble is that you'll have to be the buyer or the seller in the transaction.

Never sell the property in behalf of the owner --that's akin to acting as a real estate agent, and you're going to need a license for that.

This is where having the and or assigns verbiage is useful because you can definitely make money from real estate without having to purchase the property yourself.

Once you got the exclusive right to buy the property, you can transfer said contractual rights to another buyer in exchange for a small fee who will then be the one to fulfill the terms of the original contract.

What Do I Do if the Buyer Backs Out From the Contract Assignment to Purchase the Property?

Real estate wholesaling typically goes like this: you find a buyer and everything seems to be going well and they're set to close in a few days and you're about to get that assignment fee.

Unfortunately, the buyer calls you to say that they aren't going ahead with the deal.

Are you on the hook to buy the property?

The answer is yes, unless you want to breach the contract and ruin your reputation as a wholesaler.

But, as long as you did your due diligence, crunched the numbers, and found that the property is a great buy, you shouldn't be worried about losing money.

You're guaranteed to make money eventually, maybe not as fast as if it was a straight up wholesale transaction, but there's nothing to be scared of about getting "stuck" with the property in the meantime as you look for a buyer.

What is Double Closing?

When you choose the double closing method, there is an extra step to the ones outlined above : fund the real estate purchase yourself using your own cash, or through hard money loans. Although it has a higher interest rate versus traditional options, hard money loans are favored by real estate investors due to fast approvals and interest-only payment options.

In any case, with double closing, you buy the property at the price you and the seller agreed upon beforehand, and then afterward, you sell it to your end buyer .

Sometimes, double closing can even happen on the same day if you time it right!

This means, the seller and the end buyer ultimately never have to meet. They may not even be aware of the other party, so you don't have to worry about protecting your profits from the scrutiny of either party, and no one would walk away from the transaction feeling ripped off .

That's not to say wholesaling is essentially ripping off people, not at all!

You put together the deal, you connected a motivated buyer with an all cash buyer , of course you deserve just compensation for your efforts in the form of an assignment fee. Sellers walk away with the cash to start anew, and the real estate investors gain a property they intend to make money off on.

Everybody wins!

The downside to double closing versus a real estate assignment contract is having to pay the closing costs twice . This is because ownership is transferred to you, regardless of how brief it is.

And it isn't just the cost that is doubled, you also double the paperwork !

If you figure that a double close is not for you, then you're better off doing a real estate assignment contract. That way, you're able to collect your fee without paying a cent in closing costs!

Final Thoughts: Assigning Contracts In Real Estate

Now that you have perfected your real estate contract, you feel like you're ready to embark on your first wholesale deal.

The first step that you need to take is to find the right investment property. The typical criteria are as follows:

  • must be in a good location;
  • must have a good future prospect of urban development (hello, land appreciation!); and,
  • must be selling at a discount.

Understanding Assignment Clauses in Contracts

Nov 22, 2023 | Contracts

Contracts are an integral part of our daily lives, governing a wide range of transactions from buying goods and services to entering into employment agreements. One often-overlooked yet crucial aspect of contracts is the assignment clause. Understanding assignment clauses is essential for individuals and businesses alike, as they can significantly impact the parties involved. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the intricacies of assignment clauses, their significance, and how they can affect contractual relationships.

Table of Contents

What is an Assignment Clause?

An assignment clause, also known as a delegation clause, is a provision in a contract that dictates whether one party (the assignor) can transfer its rights, obligations, or both to another party (the assignee). In simpler terms, it outlines whether the original parties to the contract can delegate their responsibilities or transfer their benefits to a third party.

Key Components of Assignment Clauses:

Consent Requirement:

Some contracts explicitly state that an assignment can only occur with the consent of all parties involved. This ensures that no party is forced into a relationship with an unknown or potentially undesirable third party.

Prohibition of Assignment:

Conversely, some contracts expressly prohibit assignment altogether. In such cases, the parties to the contract are obligated to fulfill their roles personally, without the option to transfer their obligations or benefits.

Automatic Assignment:

In certain instances, contracts may include automatic assignment clauses. This means that rights and obligations are automatically transferred to a third party without the need for explicit consent.

Notice Requirements:

Assignment clauses often include provisions regarding notice requirements. These stipulate that the assignor must inform the other party or parties involved in the contract about the assignment, providing transparency and an opportunity for objection if necessary.

Significance of Assignment Clauses:

Risk Management:

Assignment clauses play a crucial role in risk management. For the party assigning its rights or obligations, it’s a way to mitigate potential risks and liabilities associated with the contract.

Flexibility:

From a business perspective, assignment clauses offer flexibility. They allow companies to adapt to changing circumstances, such as mergers, acquisitions, or restructuring, without the need to renegotiate every existing contract.

Investment and Financing:

Assignment clauses are of particular importance in financial transactions. Lenders and investors often look for the ability to assign contractual rights as a way to secure their interests.

Contractual Relationships:

Understanding assignment clauses is crucial for maintaining healthy contractual relationships. When parties are aware of the potential for assignment, they can negotiate terms that protect their interests and maintain the intended balance in the contract.

Common Misconceptions:

Assumption of Liabilities:

One common misconception is that by assigning contractual rights, the assignor is automatically relieved of all liabilities. In many cases, unless explicitly stated otherwise, the assignor may still be responsible for fulfilling the contractual obligations.

Unilateral Assignment:

Parties often assume they can unilaterally assign their rights or obligations. However, many contracts require the consent of all involved parties before an assignment can take place.

Case Studies:

To illustrate the practical implications of assignment clauses, let’s examine a couple of hypothetical scenarios:

Real Estate Transactions:

In real estate, assignment clauses are commonly used. For example, if a buyer signs a purchase agreement and later decides to sell the property before closing, the assignment clause dictates whether such a transfer is allowed and under what conditions.

Business Contracts:

In a business context, consider a company that enters into a service agreement with a third party. If the company undergoes a merger, the assignment clause becomes critical in determining whether the rights and obligations under the service agreement can be transferred to the newly formed entity.

Conclusion:

Understanding assignment clauses is fundamental for anyone entering into a contract, whether as an individual or a business entity. These clauses have far-reaching implications, influencing the flexibility, risk management, and overall dynamics of contractual relationships. By carefully considering and negotiating assignment clauses, parties can ensure that their interests are protected and that the contract remains adaptable to the ever-changing landscape of business and personal transactions.

real estate assignment clause

In real estate transactions, an assignment clause is a contractual provision that allows one party (the “assignor”) to transfer their rights, interests, or obligations under the contract to a third party (the “assignee”). The assignment clause provides the framework for how such transfers can take place and outlines the conditions and terms for the assignment.

It’s important for both buyers and sellers in real estate transactions to be aware of the assignment clause’s existence in the purchase agreement. Properly understanding and complying with the assignment clause can facilitate a smooth and lawful transfer of rights or ownership in the property.

An assignment clause is a legal provision that can be found in contracts and agreements. It outlines the conditions under which one party (the assignor) can transfer their rights, duties, or obligations under the contract to another party (the assignee). Assignment clauses are commonly used in a variety of contracts, including leases, loans, and business agreements. Understanding this clause is important, as it can have significant implications for all parties involved.

An assignment clause, found in various contracts and agreements, delineates the conditions under which one party can transfer their rights, obligations, or benefits to another party. This clause is pivotal because it affects the dynamics of the contractual relationship.

Typically, an assignment clause stipulates whether assignment is allowed and, if so, whether it necessitates the consent of the non-assigning party. This consent can be absolute or subject to reasonable conditions. In some cases, contracts explicitly forbid assignment, while others differentiate between assigning rights (e.g., payment entitlements) and duties (e.g., service obligations).

Understanding the assignment clause is essential as it carries significant legal and financial implications. Assignors might still be held liable if the assignee fails to meet obligations, and financial obligations may shift hands. Parties should carefully review this clause to ensure compliance and consider seeking legal advice when necessary, as it can have a lasting impact on the contract’s execution and outcomes.

Questions & Answers (Q & A)

Q: What is an assignment clause in a contract?

A: An assignment clause is a contractual provision that allows one party to transfer or “assign” their rights, benefits, and obligations under the contract to a third party, known as the “assignee.” This provision outlines the conditions and terms under which such transfers can occur.

Q: How does an assignment clause work?

A: When one party to the contract wishes to transfer their rights and obligations to another party, they must review the assignment clause to determine if it permits such transfers. In many cases, the assignor (the party making the assignment) must obtain the written consent of the other party to the contract before proceeding. Once the assignment is completed and the assignee assumes the rights and duties, the assignor is usually released from further obligations under the original contract.

Q: What are the key elements of an assignment clause?

A: The key elements of an assignment clause include:

  • Clearly defining the parties involved (assignor and assignee).
  • Stating the conditions under which assignments are allowed.
  • Specifying the procedures for seeking consent and providing notice.
  • Outlining the liabilities and obligations of the assignee after the assignment.

Q1: What are the typical conditions for assignment?

A1: The conditions for assignment can vary based on the specific contract and the intentions of the parties involved. Some common conditions include obtaining the consent of the other party, providing written notice of the assignment, and ensuring the assignee has the necessary qualifications to fulfill the obligations under the contract.

Q2: What are the requirements for making an assignment under the clause?

A2: The specific requirements for making an assignment under the clause are typically outlined in the contract. They may include obtaining the consent of the other party, providing written notice of the assignment, or complying with any conditions set forth in the clause. It is essential for the assignor to adhere to these requirements to ensure a valid and enforceable assignment.

Q3: Why are assignment clauses included in contracts?

A3: Assignment clauses are included in contracts to provide flexibility and allow parties to transfer their rights and obligations under the contract when needed. They can be beneficial in situations where a party wants to sell or transfer their interests in a project, business, or real estate property without entirely terminating the contract.

Q4: Are there any restrictions on assignments?

A4: Yes, some contracts may include restrictions or prohibitions on assignments. These restrictions are typically in place to protect the interests of the parties involved. For example, contracts involving personal services or unique skills may restrict assignments to ensure the intended parties are directly involved.

Q5: What happens if an assignment is not allowed or improperly executed?

A5: If an assignment is not allowed or not executed according to the terms of the assignment clause, it could result in a breach of contract. The party attempting to make the assignment may face legal consequences, and the other party may seek damages or take legal action to enforce the original contract.

Q6: Can an assignment clause be modified or negotiated in a contract?

A6: Yes, like any other contractual provision, the assignment clause can be negotiated and modified between the parties before the contract is finalized. Parties may choose to include specific language or conditions regarding assignments to suit their particular needs and interests.

Q7: What happens to the original party after the assignment is made?

A7: Once the assignment is completed and the assignee assumes the rights and obligations, the original party (assignor) is generally released from any further duties under the contract. The assignee becomes the new party responsible for fulfilling the terms of the agreement.

Q8: Should legal advice be sought before making an assignment?

A8: Yes, seeking legal advice is highly recommended before making an assignment or responding to an assignment request. An attorney can review the contract, assess the implications of the assignment, and ensure that all legal requirements are met to avoid potential disputes or breaches of contract.

Q9: What is the significance of the assignment clause in a real estate contract, and why is it crucial for both buyers and sellers to be aware of its implications?

A9: The assignment clause in a real estate contract outlines whether the buyer can transfer their rights and obligations to another party. It is crucial for both buyers and sellers to understand this clause as it can impact the transaction’s dynamics. For sellers, it can determine if the buyer can assign their purchase agreement to another party. Buyers need to know if they have the flexibility to assign their contract to someone else. Being aware of the assignment clause’s implications ensures all parties involved in the transaction are on the same page and that the process proceeds smoothly.

Q10: In what situations might a buyer or seller want to exercise their rights under the assignment clause, and how does this affect the real estate transaction?

A10: Buyers might want to exercise their rights under the assignment clause if they are unable to complete the purchase themselves, perhaps due to a change in circumstances. Similarly, sellers might allow the assignment if they are open to selling to another party. The key is to understand that the assignment clause can lead to a change in the buyer, which could affect the deal’s terms or timeline. Both buyers and sellers should assess the potential impact of an assignment on the transaction and decide if it aligns with their goals.

Q11: Can real estate brokers play a role in helping clients navigate assignment clauses, and how can they assist in this regard?

A11: Real estate brokers can certainly play a valuable role in helping clients understand assignment clauses. They can explain the clause’s terms, implications, and its importance. Brokers can facilitate communication between buyers and sellers regarding assignments and help negotiate terms that are acceptable to both parties. Their expertise in contract interpretation and negotiation can be instrumental in ensuring that the assignment process, if it occurs, is conducted smoothly and in compliance with the contract.

Q12: What are the potential legal and financial risks involved with assignment clauses in real estate transactions, and how can these be mitigated?

A12: Legal and financial risks in real estate assignments can include potential disputes, unexpected liabilities, or financial implications. To mitigate these risks, it’s essential to have clear and well-defined assignment terms within the contract. Engaging a real estate attorney to review the assignment clause can help ensure its legality and enforceability. Additionally, conducting thorough due diligence on the assigned party and their financial capacity can reduce financial risks.

Q13: How does the presence or absence of an assignment clause affect the marketability and flexibility of a property in the real estate market?

A13: The presence or absence of an assignment clause can impact a property’s marketability and flexibility. Properties with more flexible assignment clauses might appeal to a broader range of potential buyers, including those who might consider an assignment. On the other hand, properties without an assignment clause might appeal to buyers seeking more control over the transaction. It’s essential for sellers to work with their real estate brokers to determine the right approach for their property, considering market demand and their own preferences.

Q14: How can real estate professionals, such as brokers and agents, help clients draft or negotiate assignment clauses to better protect their interests?

A14: Real estate professionals can collaborate with clients to draft or negotiate assignment clauses that protect their interests. They can ensure that the language is clear and specific, addressing the conditions under which assignments are allowed and any consent requirements. Brokers and agents can also help clients define any limitations, timeframes, or potential consequences related to assignments. The goal is to create an assignment clause that aligns with the client’s objectives and provides legal protection.

Q15: In the context of real estate investments, how does understanding and effectively using assignment clauses contribute to a more flexible and profitable investment strategy?

A15: For real estate investors, understanding and effectively using assignment clauses can enhance investment flexibility and profitability. Investors can use assignment clauses to capitalize on market opportunities by allowing the transfer of purchase agreements to other investors or entities. This flexibility can help investors quickly exit deals or capitalize on changing market conditions. However, it’s crucial to navigate assignment clauses with a clear understanding of the legal and financial implications to maximize profitability while minimizing risks.

Q16: What potential challenges or disputes might arise regarding assignment clauses in real estate transactions, and how can these be resolved or prevented?

A16: Challenges or disputes in real estate transactions related to assignment clauses can arise when one party wishes to assign the contract, and the other party disagrees or when the terms of the assignment are unclear. To prevent or resolve such issues, it’s crucial to have a well-drafted assignment clause that clearly outlines the process and conditions. Communication between all parties is essential to avoid misunderstandings. If disputes do occur, mediation or negotiation might be used to reach a resolution, and in some cases, legal action may be necessary. The best prevention, however, is to have a well-crafted contract that anticipates and addresses potential issues.

Wholesaling Real Estate Assignment Contracts: A Comprehensive Guide for Beginners

Introduction:.

Wholesaling real estate assignment contracts is a popular strategy in real estate investment. As an investor, it allows you to act as a middleman between sellers and buyers, earning profits without ever owning the property. This article will discuss the essentials of wholesaling property contracts, including how to get a wholesale assignment contract done, wholesaling land contracts, the role of the real estate middleman, and much more.

Wholesaling Real Estate Assignment Contracts:

Wholesaling real estate assignment contracts involve finding a property seller, negotiating a purchase price, and assigning the contract to a buyer for a higher price. The difference between the purchase price and the assigned price is your profit. This approach is an excellent way for new investors to enter the real estate market, as it requires minimal capital and can be done with little experience as a real estate investor.

Wholesale Property Contract:

A wholesale property contract is a legally binding document that outlines the terms and conditions of a full real estate business transaction between the wholesaler and the seller. The wholesaler negotiates a purchase price with the seller, and in return, they have the right to assign the contract to a buyer. Critical components of a wholesale property contract include property information, purchase price, earnest money deposit, inspection contingencies, and assignment clause.

How to Get a Wholesale Contract:

To get a wholesale contract, follow these steps:.

  • Find a distressed property or motivated seller.
  • Negotiate a purchase price that is below market value.
  • Draft a wholesale property contract with the seller, including an assignment clause.

Wholesaling Land Contract:

Wholesaling land contracts follow a similar process to real estate wholesaling contracts and real estate assignment contracts but involve vacant land instead of residential or commercial properties. Investors find undervalued land, negotiate a purchase price with the seller, and then assign the land contract to a buyer for a higher price. Wholesaling land contracts can be lucrative, as land often has lower holding costs and fewer complications than developed properties.

How to Get Wholesale Contracts:

Getting wholesale contracts involves networking, marketing, and diligent research. investors can find potential deals by:.

  • I attend local real estate events and connect with other investors, wholesalers, and professionals.
  • You use online and social media platforms to market your services and find motivated sellers.
  • I am researching public records, foreclosure lists, and other sources for distressed properties or owners.
  • We are developing a reputation for reliability, professionalism, and integrity within the real estate community.

What is a Wholesale Real Estate Contract?

A wholesale real estate contract is a legally binding sale agreement between wholesalers and property sellers. It allows the wholesaler to assign the contract to a buyer for a higher price, earning a profit without purchasing the property. Wholesale real estate contracts typically include an assignment clause, which gives the wholesaler the right to assign the contract to a third party.

Real Estate Middleman Contract:

A real estate middleman or real estate wholesale contract is an agreement between a wholesaler and a property seller. The wholesaler acts as a middleman, connecting motivated sellers with buyers and assigning the contract for a profit. This type of contract is attractive to investors with limited capital, as it allows them to earn money without owning the property or financing the purchase.

Wholesale Contract for Real Estate:

A wholesale contract for real estate is an agreement between a wholesaler or real estate agent and a seller, allowing the wholesaler to assign the purchase contract to a buyer for a higher price. This contract outlines the terms and conditions of the transaction, including property information, purchase price, contingencies, and assignment clause.

Wholesaling Contracts:

Wholesaling contracts are legal agreements that allow real estate investors to act as intermediaries in real estate transactions, connecting motivated sellers with buyers and earning a profit from the difference in the negotiated purchase price and the assigned price. Wholesaling contracts typically include clauses that protect the wholesaler’s interests, such as inspection contingencies and the right to assign the contract to a third party.

Assigning a Real Estate Contract for Wholesale:

Assigning a used real estate purchase contract for wholesale involves transferring the rights and obligations of the purchase agreement from the wholesaler to the end buyer. This process is generally straightforward and involves the following steps:

  • Finding a suitable end buyer: Market the property to potential buyers and find someone interested in purchasing the property at a price higher than the negotiated purchase price.
  • Drafting an assignment agreement: Create a legally binding assignment agreement that outlines the terms and conditions of the contract assignment, including the assignment fee (the profit earned by the wholesaler).
  • Signing the assignment agreement: The wholesaler and the end buyer must sign the assignment agreement to legally bind it.
  • Closing the transaction: The end buyer and the original seller will proceed with the closing process, and the wholesaler will receive their assignment fee upon the successful completion of the transaction.

In conclusion, wholesaling real estate assignment contracts is an attractive investment strategy for individuals looking to enter the market with minimal capital and experience. By acting as a middleman and connecting motivated sellers with buyers, wholesalers can earn profits without ever owning or financing the property. Understanding the intricacies of wholesale real estate deals, property contracts, land contracts, and the assignment process is crucial for success in this fast-paced and competitive market. By networking, marketing, and conducting thorough research, aspiring wholesalers can find lucrative deals and build a successful real estate investment business.

Assignment Clause in a Real Estate Contract: What to Know

Assignment Clause

An assignment clause in a real estate contract allows an investor to sell a property without buying it. There is a lot to unpack in that simple sentence, so let us examine why a seller, an investor (or wholesaler), and a buyer may want to enter into such an agreement. 

  • An assignment clause in real estate allows an intermediary to grant the privileges and responsibilities of a contract to another person. 
  • People make money assigning contracts by brokering deals between motivated sellers and dependable investors.  

There is a lot of legwork that goes into finding appropriate properties. However, the transactions themselves usually happen very quickly.  

Click to Open Outline

How Does an Assignment of Contract Work? 

What does assignment mean in a contract? An assignment grants the benefits and responsibilities of a contract from one party to another. Investors use these contracts to ensure they get paid when they broker real estate deals. 1   

What is an Assignment Clause in a Real Estate Contract? 

The assignment clause in a real estate contract is the vehicle that allows wholesalers, or intermediaries, to broker deals in real estate. There are three important parties in the clause: 

  • The assignor – The seller  
  • The obligor – The investor or wholesaler 
  • The assignee – The buyer 

This allows the obligor to be a legal party to the contract. It allows compensation for the investor (the obligor), who acts as the middleman. 

What if There is No Assignment Clause in a Real Estate Contract? 

Can you assign a contract without an assignment clause? Most of the time yes. In most states, if the contract does not specifically forbid it then a buyer may assign the contract to another buyer. However, be careful. If you do not include the clause in the sales contract, then you should draft a contract stipulating your assignment fees with the new buyer.  

Difference Between Assignment and Novation 

The difference between an assignment and a novation is subtle but important. With an assignment, the obligor transfers the benefits and obligations of the existing contract to a third party. No change is made to the contract. In the case of a novation, the investor substitutes one buyer for another.  

To novate a contract, the assignor (the seller) must agree to a change in the contract. That is not necessarily true in the case of assignment. The 0bligor may assign an assignee (the new buyer) and not make any changes to the contract.  

How do You Make Money Assigning Real Estate Contracts? 

This real estate investment strategy works when you broker a deal between a motivated seller and an investor. It is a niche market that requires you, as the broker, to find the right seller and match them with an appropriate buyer. But what kind of seller? And what kind of buyer? 2   

What Sellers You Should Approach with an Assignment Contract 

Not every seller is interested in this type of transaction. Finding the right seller of an appropriate property is crucial. You must find a motivated seller who thinks it is more important to sell quickly than get the most money.  

This is a proactive process. You must find them before they find another interested buyer or broker. Here are some ways brokers find these buyers: 

  • Email marketing 
  • Direct mail marketing 
  • Putting out signs in a target neighborhood 

With this campaign, you look for the seller who tells you “I have to sell because . . .” as opposed to “I’m curious about what my house may be worth.” 

What Buyers You Should Approach with an Assignment Contract 

When you find a motivated buyer, who wants to sell an appropriate property it is important to already have an interested seller or sellers, you can call. If you do not have a dependable buyer ready to go you will lose the deal, because someone else will buy. What does a good buyer look like in this case? 

  • Someone with experience buying investment properties. 
  • Someone who can close quickly. 
  • A professional who is consistent and decisive. 

The buyer must act quickly. This means they pay cash or have financing lined up ahead of time and can close quickly. Indecisive people will either not act quick enough or get cold feet and back out of the deal. In the latter case that could leave you in a precarious position. You either must buy the property yourself or forfeit your earnest money.  

The best thing to do is find an investor you trust before you find a motivated seller. Going to investing chat rooms is a good place to start if you do not know anyone personally.  

Final Thoughts on An Assignment Clause in a Real Estate Contract 

Assignment contracts may seem like an easy investment strategy on the surface, but it requires a lot of research. You must know real estate values in your area very well and be willing to do a lot of legwork finding undervalued properties with motivated sellers. That is not easy, and there is a lot of competition.  

On the other side of the transaction, you must cultivate a stable of reliable investors. This takes even longer because you must develop trust with them. You must trust them to complete the transaction, and they must trust you to find them good investments. One bad deal can sour a relationship. Also, not every investor is ready when you find a property, so you must gather a stable of investors so that one will be ready when you call with a hot deal.

Assignment Clause

real estate assignment clause

In regards to the assignment clause below, would this clause be added to the Agreement of Purchase and Sale between the assignor and the assignee?

The Buyer acknowledges that the Seller has purchased the property by way of a prior accepted Agreement of Purchase and Sale, a copy of which is attached as Schedule “_____” hereto, and the Seller is assigning the Seller’s rights thereunder to the Buyer. Upon acceptance of this Offer, the Seller shall give written notice of Assignment to any other parties affected by this Agreement. If the Seller is unable to complete the transaction by reason of default of the party from whom the Seller has purchased the property, the Seller shall not be liable for any damage or loss incurred by the Buyer, and this Agreement of Purchase and Sale shall become null and void and the deposit shall be returned to the Buyer in full without deduction.

There is actually an “Assignment Agreement” which deals with this in greater detail upon the assumption that it is an unregistered condominium. It deals with a variety of additional issues, not just the actual assignment itself.

It’s important to remember, that all contracts can be assigned unless the original Seller has included a clause which would prevent an assignment.

Usually, assignments are prevented unless the original Seller consents, and they will do so, only upon their own terms.

real estate assignment clause

Once a business owner has an understanding of the value of the business and the tax and cash flow impacts of the transfer, the next step is to document the transfer. This may be done by the client’s separate business legal counsel or, if there isn’t one, the estate planner can usually handle the appropriate documentation. It is important to remember that if the client’s goal is to sell to a third party, all of these documents will be reviewed and scrutinized during due diligence, so it is best practice to have them all complete and organized so there is no question about the ownership of the business and the effectiveness of any transfer.

First, all of the existing documents will need to be reviewed. For example, there may be transfer restrictions in old bylaws that will need to be amended, or there may be an existing operating agreement or shareholder agreement requiring that certain consents be obtained from the manager or board in order to transfer equity. If there are lenders or other third-party agreements in place, those should also be reviewed to ensure there are no other separate consents that need to be obtained. Those agreements may also give guidance as to how the transfer must be structured. For example, a gift to a trust for the benefit of a spouse or family members of a current equity owner may be allowed, but only if the Trustee is an individual that is qualified under the bylaws or operating agreement. The existing agreements may provide guidance as to the ultimate structure of the transfer depending on the relationship between the parties.

Once it is clear that the existing documents allow the transfer, and all relevant consents are received, the next step is to assign the equity. In most instances, this can be done via a simple assignment or assignment separate from certificate. If the entity’s equity is certificated, new stock/unit certificates will need to be issued and old ones cancelled.

New members or shareholders may need to be approved by the manager or via board resolution, which require document preparation too. Similarly, if there is an existing operating or shareholder agreement in place, the transferee will, generally, need to execute a joinder to be bound by the terms of that agreement as a condition to accept the transfer. That agreement may also need to be amended to reflect the new owner as a party, including the schedule of owners typically attached to those agreements.

If there is no operating or shareholder agreement in place, whether because the business owner was the sole owner or an agreement was not put in place when prior transfers were made, the transfer should serve as the appropriate time to put such a document in place. One of the key provisions that should be included once there are multiple owners is buy-sell provisions.

Buy-sell provisions are intended to keep ownership away from undesirable owners, provide a fair process for valuing stock for transfers among owners, create a smooth transition of control and ownership, assure that there is a “market” for the equity through the other owners, provide a mechanism for funding the purchase through life insurance or defined terms, and potentially establish a value for estate tax purposes. Buy-sell provisions often include certain triggering events where an individual must offer his or her equity for sale to the other owners or back to the business. These generally include: death of an owner, termination (depending on the owner and whether for cause), divorce, bankruptcy, or disability. If a triggering event occurs, the agreement then lays out the valuation process for the applicable interest, which may be structured as a redemption, a cross-purchase, or a combination/hybrid of the two approaches. In the event of the death of an owner of a family business, the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) provides additional requirements for the valuation method in an agreement to be respected for estate tax purposes.

Finally, one additional point to note, in gifting the equity in the entity, since the value of the underlying equity either may not be determined with finality by the valuation expert at the time of the transfer, and still remains subject to challenge by the IRS, one recommendation would be to use a formula valuation clause in the assigning document (commonly known as a “ Wandry ” formula). For example, instead of gifting 20 percent of the equity, a client can give the lesser in value as finally determined for federal gift tax purposes of 20 percent of the equity or the maximum amount the client can gift without incurring any transfer tax ( i.e. , an amount up to the client’s remaining gift tax exemption). The maximum amount can also be a different number ( i.e. , two million dollars of value). By using a formula valuation, the client can prevent over-gifting if the IRS challenges the value and is successful in having a higher valuation apply. For example, if a client has $10 million of exemption remaining and makes a straight assignment of what the client thinks is $10 million of equity, and the IRS successfully challenges the value and that equity assigned is actually valued at $20 million, the client will owe gift tax on the $10 million of equity above the client’s remaining exemption (four million dollars of tax!). With a formula valuation assignment limiting the equity assignment up to the client’s remaining federal gift tax exemption and a successful IRS challenge, the client will have then only gifted 50 percent of the equity that was initially transferred, resulting in no tax due to the IRS. These types of assignments will likely have to be drafted by the estate planner. In addition, it is critically important that the Federal Gift Tax Return reporting the gift include consistent language so that the gift is always stated in terms of the formula. Even if accountants are preparing the client’s gift tax return, it is very important for the estate planner to review the return before it is filed.
