Real Estate and Construction Law
Real estate sale contracts allow the transfer of the ownership of a real estate, and are prepared officially in writing and entered into before a land registry officer. Due to the reason that these contracts are considered to be inseparable parts of the registration, obligation to transfer the ownership of a real estate cannot be undertaken independent of the official contract. This is why a contract of promise of real estate sale is considered to be a frontal contract.
A contract of promise of real estate sale is drafted by and signed before public notaries. However, in order to contend this contract against third parties, it needs to be registered in the land registry. With a contract of promise of real estate sale that was issued and entered into properly, either party can force the other party to perform the contract and transfer the ownership of the real estate in land registry. A contract of promise of real estate sale can be terminated either by the parties’ intentions, performance of the contract, statute of limitation or termination by convenience.
