Tri Party Document Registration Agreement

Tripartite agreements are usually signed for the purchase of units in projects under construction. As a general rule, the contract of purchase and sale contains either fiduciary conditions or requires the parties` lawyers to enter into a document registration agreement in order to regulate the release of funds and documents as well as the registration of documents. When registering electronically, a trust procedure is recommended, as purchase funds, keys and off-title documents cannot be moved electronically between the parties. The DRA is a standardized form of agreement that governs the relationship between the parties until all documents and funds are exchanged and electronic registration has been made.
