I just seen your question on Carlton’s forms; I don’t usually visit this forum but maybe I can shed some light on his forms.
An investor friend of mine in the next town over used Carltons forms from day one. He’s military and has purchased a house or two (including the one they currently live in where they’re stationed) at each base. Well, he found a fairly OK deal on a beach-front condo he though he’d keep as a rental until he retired and return to the area. After all the up-front discussions and negotiations, the contract was signed. A couple of weeks later, the seller decided he wanted out, claiming fraud and whatever he thought he could get away with, and refused to give the deposit back (it wasn’t much, but that’s not the point here). On principle, the investor took him to court sueing for specific performance. I wanted to go to that trial but unfortunatly I couldn’t get off work. Anyway, I heard the seller and the judge (et al) went over the contract with fine tooth comb. In the end, the judge told the seller to fork over the keys, AND pay the investors court costs! (that phrase was also part of the contract if I remember right!)
So, the short answer to your question - yes, it has been used AND DEFENDED successfully here in Florida.
