Apartment Investing _ Letter of Intent Or Offer to Purchase? Which is better, a Letter of Intent or Purchase Offer? This is a frequent question for apartment investors looking to make a purchase. Before we get too far, here is my quick definition of the two documents: 1. Purchase Offer, or Purchase Agreement _ A legal document that describes the price, terms, contingencies, and other details of how a buyer would be willing to purchase a piece of real estate. 2. Letter of Intent (LOI) _ A preliminary document outlining the price, terms, and other transaction details that a buyer would be be interested in purchasing a piece of real estate.
If you are filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there is a chance that some of your possessions may need to be sold in order to repay creditors. Your letter intent should describe what assets of yours will be kept and which will be sold, as creditors will want to be informed of this information. These letters should be sent within 30 days of filing for bankruptcy. A lawyer is typically used to ensure that these letters get to all the right places and contain the proper, and correct, information.
