Canceling Real Estate Contracts Via Certified Mail
The home buying process is complex, and sometimes realtors have clients who decide they want to pull out of a home purchase and cancel their purchase contract. While there are many valid legal reasons to do so, it is important to closely follow the contract stipulations to ensure that the contract is canceled legally and to guard against future lawsuits.
In many states, real estate contracts can be canceled within a set number of days with proper notice. But this must be tracked and able to be proven in case there is a dispute about having filed notice within the contractually required time period. This is where Certified Mail becomes so crucial; with Proof of Acceptance and Proof of Delivery that is legally recognized, you can demonstrate that you followed the proper protocols and gave notice within the required time period.
While certified mail is important, the process of sending certified mail has been a pain. Real Estate professionals have turned to Switch to send their certified mail because it is secure, easy and allows them to never have to go to the Post Office or deal with Green Cards. With Switch, you can electronically receive Proof of Delivery, which is uploaded into your dashboard automatically and is legally equivalent to physical Green Cards. This eliminates the wait and need to find old Green Cards.
With no subscription, mail preparation elimination, and a pay as you go model, it’s no wonder Real Estate professionals have been turning to Switch more and more for their certified mail needs.
