If it's not a bank owned property then you can just put and/or assigns after your name on the contract and then assign it to your buyer.

Also, I think that if the contract doesn't specifically state that it is NOT assignable, then you can assign it, so you wouldn't even have to add the and/or assigns.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong about that, but that's what I've been lead to believe.

Assignment clauses are not that typical when a seller is using a realtor, however it is possible.  You would just need to make an addendum to the contrat and add it there.  Its better to do it then not to becauce once a buyer finds out you are selling it for more than they are selling to you for they might try to get out of the contract.

Most bank owned properties are listed w realtors, and they will not let you assign them.

You have to do a double close instead. 

This topic has been discussed on this forum many times at length- do a search and you will find plenty of info..

Anlong with what Steph said,

You also want to make sure you protect yourself. If you're not licensed, then they may accuse you of acting as an agent. Not to worry, just get some type of disclosure that states you are not representing the seller or the buyer, and your intent in the transaction. I've seen various names for this type of form. The ones I have used are Sales Checklist, Sales Disclosure and/or Affidavit. Some key lines you'll see in this form, that the seller and buyer need to intial off on are:


We understand that_______________ is not a licensed real estate agent.
W eunderstand that_______________is not representing either Buyer or Seller in thistransaction.
We understand that_______________has assigned his/her right to purchase the property to Buyer.
We understand that_______________ intends to makea financial gain in this transaction.

and more...

I get this type of form initialed and signed by both the seller and buyer on all my deals. It won't hurt you, by having this form, but it may hurt you if you don't. :deal

I am in no way shape or form guaranteeing you that all will be perfect with the information I gave you. Please speak to your attorney for further scrutiny...

Ok, I think that covers my butt. lol

Good luck on your deal.

Your name goes there. The buyer and seller need to initial next to each line, acknowleding each line.

Well i want to say thank you because you gave me another safety blanket to get under when things get crazy i will re-type mines and put that in there. i thought by just saying and or assigns by my name and having a clause saying I pradap may not be end buyer of this property. The right wording on a contract will save your butt  :beer  , i wonder sometimes what will be a good min and max to make on each assignment deal?

I don't know how things are where you live but where I'm at I can search tax records by name, address or parcel no.
I dive into township records and look for bs&asoftware in Mi.
Some townships call parcel and land search, others call it equalizer data base etc.
Hope that helps. herbster
