- The making and receipt of bids as to the proposed price for sale by prospective purchasers do not constitute legal and enforceable contracts.  Outside of Doorsey’s Platform, the agents and parties must still prepare a written offer (which is not shared with other parties, since that is handled outside of Doorsey) and a traditional Purchase and Sale Agreement after the close of Doorsey’s services to create an enforceable contract for the purchase and sale of residential real estate.  Please consult with your real estate advisor, financial advisor, or lawyer to determine what elements are required to be in writing in your jurisdiction in order to create a legally enforceable contract.

   - Memoranda of Sale     
    - Letters of Intent     
    - Purchase and sale agreements;     
   - Deeds;     
   - Excise tax affidavits;      
    - Deeds of trust;     
    - Mortgages;      
    - Promissory notes; or     
    - Any other legal instrument of finance or property transfer.
- The parties are responsible for the payment of any and all sales and use taxes and that Doorsey and/or Doorsey’s agents are authorized to collect said sales and use taxes at any point in time, including at any point in time after the transaction is closed.
