Asked by Ann, Ohio Wed Sep 19, 2007

If so how do you word it? Does the Seller give the money to the buyer or does the Broker give to the buyer thats stated in the purchase contract?

The Ohio Division of Real Estate has answered this question by saying that the rebate/inducement (which are legal now) have to be stated in the purchase contract. We also use a seperate rebate disclosure that the State of Kentucky has started using.

Consult your Broker or an Attorney.

As for my understanding, in Ohio the seller can credit to the buyer at closing funds for specific reasons such as carpet allowance, paint, etc. as long as it is fully disclosed to all parties. To simply give money to a buyer is an inducement and that will get you into trouble.
