Vendee refers to a person to whom something is sold. The meaning of vendee is a buyer of goods and services. A more common term for vendee is a purchaser. While a vendor is a seller, the vendee is a term associated with the person that buys or the person at whom the vendor sells his products or services.

Also, the term vendee can also be a land buyer or a commercial real estate investor who uses his/her capital in order to purchase commercial real estate. Any type of real estate associated purchase makes the owner a vendee or a purchaser.

Hi Randy! The short answer to your question is yes. Although it isn't always obligatory, under most circumstances the agreements you specified must be signed by both parties in order to be legally binding. Hope we were able to clarify that for you!

Can vendee loan payments be tied into mortgage payments.

Hey, Jeanettia! Thank you for your question. I assume you are referring to closing costs for home loans. If that is the case, then there is a way you can reduce the amount of money you pay for closing through a seller concession. Through a sellers concession, the home seller is reducing the closing costs of buying the home, making it easier for the buyer. The funds will be added to the home’s sale price, therefore adding them to the mortgage payments. We do have an article about negotiating tips for lower your closing costs where we talk about the sellers concession and other ways of lowering your payments if you find it useful.
