A real-estate assignment contract is a piece of legal document that is used to transfer the legal obligations of a party of a contract (property) from one individual to another. That is, it is usually drawn up after a real-estate purchase agreement has been created and signed by the buyer and the seller. Once a real-estate assignment contract is signed, all the legal obligations of real-estate property are legally transferred from the seller to the buyer.
A standard real-estate assignment contract contains the following information.
- The full names of all the parties involved in the real-estate assignment contract.
- The full addresses of all the parties involved in the real-estate assignment contract.
- The price and other costs associated with the property.
- The date of sale of the property.
- Term and conditions of sale.
