ASSOCIATION APPROVAL IN REAL ESTATE CONTRACTSBruce Loren and Allen Heffner | Oct 09 2020

We represent residential homeowners who attempted to sell their condominium unit. The sales contract contained a provision that the sale was contingent upon the Association’s approval of Buyer within a certain time period. Pursuant to the contract, in the event the Association did not approve the Buyer, the contract automatically terminated, relieving Buyer and Sellers from their obligations under the contract. Unfortunately, the Association did not approve the Buyer and the sale did not close. The Buyer felt he was wrongfully disapproved and sued the Sellers and the Association to force the sale of the property. As part of the litigation, Buyer recorded a lis pendens on the property, which inhibited the Sellers from selling the property while the litigation was pending.
