Alright. Let's look at how to write a Letter of Intent step by stepǍ. At the top of the letter, write today's dateǎ. Include the Seller or Broker information at the top of the letterǏ. Explain that you are presenting this as a Letter of Intent to purchase the propertyǐ. Explain who you are _ whether you are buying through an LLC, investment group, etcǑ. Describe the property you are purchasing _ the property name and addressǒ. Include the price you would agree to purchase the propertyǓ. Define the due diligence period _ it may be anywhere from 30 to 90 days, possibly even longer in a complex projectǔ. Identify how you would like to finance the project _ Seller financing, loan assumption, bank financing, etc.
I had a project recently where the director was lifelong friends with a break_out star, who had committed to doing the film. The agency was non_committal. Why? Because the agency didn't want to tie_up a month of the actor's time for a measly million bucks, when they could be getting 5┦x that from a studio for the same time slot. At the end of the day, a lot of money and time was spent pre_selling territories and shoring up the financing, only to have the star drop out, under target CAA's ('er I mean a random agency's) pressure.
