This document is an optional condition which can be used in a business sale agreement.
It is common in business sale agreements, where the purchaser requires a loan to pay part of the purchase price, for the sale to be conditional on the purchaser obtaining the loan on reasonable conditions.
Using this precedent
This precedent clause is a condition precedent which can be used in a business sale agreement. It can also be inserted into the “conditions precedent” schedule of the separate precedents “Business sale agreement – sale of assets (short form)” and “Business sale agreement – sale of shares (short form)”.
When inserting this optional clause into an agreement, care must be taken to ensure that the agreement remains consistent. Cross-references, definitions and schedules should all be checked.
