About this document
This is a comprehensive agreement for the purchase/sale of a business by an individual, a company or any other organisation.
Note: not suitable for sale of shares in a company.
It is usual for the buyer to produce the sale document but there is no reason why the seller should not obtain an advantage by providing the first draft.
Warranties have been used only so far as appropriate to the subject matter of the sale. The drafting notes contain a thorough explanation of how warranties work.
Complications arise if the purchase money is not paid over to the seller at the same moment as other matters are finalised. This and other Net Lawman documents assume that most matters will be completed when the cash is paid. There are a few inevitable exceptions, particularly when relying on a third party such as a web host or domain name registrar. If it is inevitable that some matters remain to be done later than the date of completion, you should use our drafting service to draw the fine points for you.
The purchase price may be apportioned among the assets to assist in tax planning.
As a buyer, you will probably be buying the property or at least taking over a lease. Many of these agreements include a transfer of a lease and / or an agreement to buy a freehold.
We give you more information about these procedures in the drafting notes that come with each document.
