Number of Copies and Distribution (2, 3, 4 Originals)

May 28, 2013




Let’s have a look at an actual real estate transaction and see what happens with the copies of the agreement.


Assume the following:


  • Vendor: Robert Smith


  • Spouse of Vendor: Mary Ann Castlemore


  • Purchasers: William and Martha Jones


  • Vendor’s agent: ABC Realty Inc.


  • Vendor’s sales representative: Lorne Wycliffe


  • Vendor’s lawyer: Bob Seemore


  • Purchasers’ agent: XYZ Realty Inc.


  • Purchasers’ sales representative: Harold Wilson


  • Purchasers’ lawyer: C. J. Radcome


  • Property: matrimonial home


2 Originals


With 2 originals, then there should be one for both sides to the deal. The Vendor gets a copy and the Purchasers get a copy of the original too.


As between the two purchasers, they can decide who gets the original and who gets the true copy.


3 Originals


Now, that we have 3 originals, the vendor will get one and the two purchasers will get the two other originals.


4 Originals


Once we have 4 copies, then we have an extra. That should go to Mary. She is a party to the contract. She signed the spousal consent.


She is to have the final original copy, before the brokerages and the lawyers.
