Components of a Letter of Intent for Real Estate

There is no one-size-fits-all template for a letter of intent for real estate. Proposal Kit templates can be customized as needed to fit any situation using the extensive chapter template library. Here are some key chapters typically included in this type of template. Use this template as your starting point and customize it as needed using the software included with each Proposal Pack or the Professional bundle.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as a formal introduction to the Letter of Intent (LOI). It provides a brief overview of the purpose of the document, introduces the parties involved, and sets a professional tone for the rest of the document.


The Introduction outlines the objectives of the LOI, stating the intent to purchase the property and summarizing the key points that will be addressed in the document. It gives a clear and concise summary of what the buyer aims to achieve.

Cost Summary

The Cost Summary details the financial aspects of the transaction, including the purchase price, estimated closing costs, and any other financial terms. It gives a snapshot of the expected expenses involved in the deal.

Due Diligence

The Due Diligence chapter specifies the investigative steps the buyer will undertake to verify all aspects of the property. It outlines the period allowed for due diligence and the scope of the investigations, such as checking legal titles and assessing property conditions.

Dates and Times

This chapter sets out the important dates and timelines relevant to the transaction. It includes deadlines for due diligence, closing dates, and any other critical timeframes that both parties need to adhere to.


The Zoning chapter describes the current zoning classification of the property and any zoning restrictions or requirements. This section ensures that the buyer is aware of what can legally be developed or modified on the property.


The Utilities chapter explains the status and availability of important services such as water, gas, electricity, and sewer. It includes any information on existing utility providers and potential costs associated with connecting services.


The Property chapter gives a detailed description of the real estate being purchased. It includes information like the property's address, size, and any significant features or structures.


This section lists any exhibits or attachments that are included with the LOI. Exhibits might include maps, surveys, or other pertinent documents that provide additional details about the property.

Permits and Licenses

The Permits and Licenses chapter outlines any necessary permits or licenses required for ownership or development of the property. It ensures both parties understand what legal permissions are needed.


The Inspection chapter specifies the inspection rights reserved by the buyer, detailing what inspections will be conducted and within what timeframe. It ensures that the buyer can verify the condition of the property.


The Appraisal chapter discusses the process for determining the property's market value. It includes who will conduct the appraisal and how disputes over the valuation will be handled.


This chapter details any commission agreements involving real estate agents or brokers. It ensures that all parties understand who is responsible for paying commissions and how much they will be.


The Taxes chapter outlines any tax obligations associated with the property purchase. It includes property tax assessments, transfer taxes, and any other related tax liabilities.


The Ownership chapter clarifies the legal ownership of the property and how ownership will be transferred. This section includes details on title searches and how ownership disputes will be resolved.


The Confidentiality chapter ensures that all information disclosed during the transaction process remains confidential. It protects both parties from unauthorized sharing of sensitive information.
