If the booking agreement you signed is bilateral, i.e. the contract in which the owner of the property does not comply with the contract, you have the right to recover the deposit (or, in other words, the blocking). The contract between the real estate agency and those interested in the purchase cannot provide for any obligation that would exist between the person interested in the purchase (i.e. a potential buyer) and the third party – the seller. Such an obligation for the person interested in the purchase to purchase the sales contract is invalid and cannot be sanctioned. The real estate agency should return the booking fee to you or you can receive them by court order. Before signing a booking agreement, sellers should verify that the terms comply with the code requirements and ensure that they do not enter into any other agreement for the same property with another party. Booking agreements differ from exclusivity agreements, which are surpassed by a certain security of the buyer by setting a period during which the seller agrees not to enter into negotiations with another party. As part of a reservation agreement, the seller cannot enter into another such agreement with another party, but enter into negotiations. You agree to generally purchase with a penalty for non-compliance, a property that you have not examined and verified in detail. You agree to buy a property on different terms, which means you will have to buy the property, even if it has defects or if your bank will not approve your mortgage.
In other words, you agree to enter into a sales contract with an unknown wording. You also agree to pay a booking fee or down payment, the amount of which is generally the same as the contractual penalty imposed if you have changed your mind and have not purchased the property for any reason. The booking contract also provides for the obligation for the real estate agency not to offer such real estate to other people. What does that mean? You don`t have time to think about your purchase. It is not the result of the contract that you may change your mind about buying the property. You should always know the condition of the property BEFORE signing a contract. This is generally not true; The contract does not involve anything like this – this option is only offered by the most decent real estate agencies. The real estate agency cannot promise you that such a property will not be sold by another real estate agency or by the seller himself to another buyer. They are guaranteed only if the seller commits himself or if the real estate agency and the seller enter into the exclusive contract. When contracts are exchanged, the tax is deducted from the contribution which is then placed.
