As more real estate brokers in the Chicago area start using the new 6.0 MBRE Contract we seem to be finding issues which need to be cleaned up. One of the clauses which can cause some big problems for Buyers is a portion of paragraph 8, which states that buyer shall cause an appraisal to be ordered no later than ten days after acceptance. This is a term all Buyer's attorneys should strike from their client's contracts. The appraisal is ordered by the lender and borrowers have almost no control as to when the lender will schedule the appraisal. The harsh consequence of risking a default because the lender failed to schedule the appraisal on time is not worth the risk to Buyers. As a Buyer, we strongly recommend striking out this clause or amending it to redcue the risk.
