As of this drafting of Victoria Falls market watch Spring 2014, there are two condos under contract. One condo unit contract status is listed as Contingency with No Kick-Out clause and the other with a Kick-Out clause.
A Kick-out clause protects the seller in the event a more attractive offer is presented to the seller prior to closing. If a contract is presented and accepted by the seller, the seller have the authority to kick-out the original contract and/or advise the buyer that they must remove the Contingency to avoid a possible Kick-Out.The original buyers must agree to remove the Contingency clause and proceed to closing within a designated number of days or the kick-out clause will kick-in….. The time frame for the buyer’s reply to a kick-out is normally forty-eight hours unless mutually agreed upon by all parties or in a transaction where the original buyer remove the kick-out clause sooner rather than later!
