Jul 30, 2023 - Considerations in boat transaction terms can be defined as the values exchanged between a buyer and seller at the time of a closing settlement. Although the sales price is typically based on a total sum amount, payment considerations may come in the form of money, a trade-in, real property and/or personal property items.
In order to avoid misunderstandings, a break down of the values assigned to non-monetary considerations should be detailed in the purchase agreement. The same applies to any transfer documents such as a bill of sale or title release. However, these may simply state something to the effect of "Ten Dollars and other valuable considerations" for privacy issues when publicly recorded.
Contracts and transfer documents may have considerable ramifications when it comes to taxation issues and/or estate planning. Any such concerns should be addressed with an attorney or professional consultant prior to their finalization.
