Hi,if an agent proposes an offer to purchase to a homeowner, that was A) signed a day before the initial meeting with the homeowner and B) not completed in full eg. the end date of the suspensive clause was not filled in nor signed by the purchaser, would such a document be regarded as legal and binding once signed by the homeowner (seller) ?The reason for the signing BEFORE the meeting is because certain pages of a previously signed OTP were used to construct the new offer and not all pages were re-signed by the purchaser, only the ones pertaining to the new property.
