SUSPENSIVE CONDITIONS: Conditions included by the buyer or seller, which must be fulfilled for the contract to become a binding sales contract. These conditions allow the buyer or seller to terminate the contract without penalty if one or more of the conditions are not met within an agreed time frame. The sale of land generally includes devices and fittings. These are objects that are permanently attached to the structures or buildings of the countryside. In determining whether an object is a device and/or adaptation, three aspects should be considered: the object of destination or the type of object to which it was attached, the manner in which an object was attached, and the intention of the owner when placing the object. There are some ambiguous areas, namely structures such as sheds and wendy houses, objects used in combination with a device, such as garage door remotes and batteries for solar installations. If the buyer wishes to include this type of item in the sale, the clause that defines it must be as specific as possible. It is difficult to impose oral agreements in this regard. Under Section 2 of the Alienation of Land Act (No.
68, 1981), an agreement on the sale of land must be signed in writing and by both parties (i.dem the seller and the buyer). If the agreement is not written or signed, it is null and void and therefore without force or effect. What does a person have to do if they want to sell their property? PEST CONTROL CERTIFICATE: a certificate issued by a registered person certifying that the property is free of wood that destroys insects or fungi. But this is not the end. The additional conditions essential to the sale must also be mentioned in the agreement. These essential concepts are not easy to define, but it must be kept in mind that there is no valid agreement if an essential concept has not been definitively agreed and is left open to further negotiations. When processing the sale of the land, the examples of essential conditions are: the method of payment of the purchase price, the time in which the purchase price must be paid, the suspensive conditions and other special conditions, as well as the date of the occupation and the possible rent of the operation.
