Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Has the contract/purchase agreement already been signed by both parties?
If you sign the original purchase agreement.....and the buyer has also signed, then you have a contract at that point, and there can be no counter-offer or changes to the contract unless both parties agree to the change.
So, if you want to make a change, you should need to make the counter-offer with the terms you want and present it to the buyer for execution.
No......the counter-offer is just that - - an offer. It would not supersede the signed purchase agreement UNLESS the buyer and seller both agree to the change.
IF the buyer refuses the proposed changes, then you're stuck with the terms of the fully executed purchase agreement.
