Anytime there is leasing involved (e.g., vacation rentals, long term rentals, short term rentals, solar panels leased, water treatment system leased, rollcarts leased, security system leased, spa leased) get the sellers to hire their closing attorney asap and the buyers to hire their closing attorney asap to work on all issues related to leasing.

SCR535 is a new form to help with vacation rentals and SCR310.

Reminder that SCR310 contract alone is designed for a typical vacant unencumbered transfer in a residential resale deal. Sellers with leasing issues risk breaching SCR310 without attorney modifications (e.g., attorney drafted addenda, SCR535) or clearing the lease by closing.
