Offer to Purchase Or Letter of Intent. Both terms are used to describe an offer made to purchase a business. An over_simplification of the definition of both documents is: An Offer to Purchase is usually written in contract form and defines the price, terms and conditions of the sale, and is usually accompanied by an earnest money deposit. A Letter of Intent (LOI) is usually written in letter form and also defines the price and the terms and conditions but usually doesn't call for an earnest money deposit.
