Coronavirus (COVID-19) Extension Addendum to Contract

Florida Realtors released a contract extension addendum that allows for time periods and dates to be extended as a result of the COVID-10 pandemic.

A new form from Florida Realtors - the Coronavirus (COVID-10) Extension Addendum to Contract - is available in Form Simplicity.
This form is available for use in the event the parties would like to extend certain dates or time periods as a result of COVID-19. As stated in the addendum:
"The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic may cause unprecedented impacts to real estate transactions, including but not limited to travel restrictions, self-imposed and/or governmental required isolations, potential closures of offices and institutions required to fund, close and record real estate transactions, and action or inactions of a homeowners' or condominium association."

The form includes checkboxes with extension options for:
  • Closing date
  • Financial period
  • Inspection period
  • Title cure period
  • Feasibility study period
  • Due diligence period
  • Homeowners' / condominium association approval

The form also includes a provision for a loan-approved buyer should things change on the lenders' side as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many of us have pets and Summer can be especially difficult for them as it is for us! We don't think how hot the asphalt is on their paws, how much water they need, when to walk them other than in the hottest hours, if they should be groomed for heat relief...or wear sunscreen etc.! So here is a wonderful article by the Pet Health Network with their 10 Top Summer Safety Tips for pet owners. Read it - your pet will thank you with love!
Again, we want you all to be safe, healthy, practicing social distancing and wearing masks is a must these days. For your information, we are attaching links that you may find helpful regarding the rules and orders made by various towns and communities:
