The Most Important Clause to Include in a Letter of Intent (LOI) Or Purchase Contract. Writing a Purchase Contract or Letter of Intent (LOI) to buy an apartment building or commercial property can be an exciting experience. It can also be a bit intimidating. This is especially true for beginning investors.
An LOI is a nonbinding legal agreement that not only expresses interest, but typically details the initial terms for the contemplated transaction, timing for due diligence, any contingencies (financing, Board approval, etc.), and specifies the timing to execute a final definitive agreement and close the transaction.
