GLOSSARY OF RELOCATION AND REAL ESTATE TERMS

Acceptance date
Acceptance date is the date aecc receives the signed aecc contract of sale from the transferee. Aecc must have the aecc contract of sale signed by the transferee before aecc can sign the resale contract with the resale purchaser.
Acceptance period
when aecc makes a guaranteed purchase offer to the transferee, the transferee will have a set number of days to accept the offer. Although the acceptance period varies from corporate client to corporate client, it is typically 60 days. During this time the transferee is marketing the home to try get an amended value sale for more than the guaranteed purchase offer.
Accessorial (additional) services
services such as packing, appliance servicing, unpacking, or piano stair carries that you request to be performed (or are necessary because of landlord requirements or other special circumstances). Charges for these services are in addition to the transportation charges.
Acquisition costs
these are expenses paid by the corporate client related to aecc's acquisition of the property. These costs include the initial title exam, appraisals, inspections, if applicable, and $22.00 for overnight delivery service.
Advanced charges
charges for services not performed by the mover but instead by a professional, craftsman or other third party at your request. The charges for these services are paid for by the mover and added to your bill of lading charges.
Aecc contract of sale
this document is signed by aecc and the transferee. This contract states the terms under which aecc will purchase the property, including the sales price (either guaranteed purchase offer or buyer value option offer amount), the acceptance period, what personal property is included in the sale, how long the transferee has to vacate the property, and other conditions of the sale. This document must be signed by the transferee and received by aecc before aecc can resell the property to a resale purchaser.
Aecc power of attorney
this document must be signed and notarized by the transferee and the spouse. This document allows aecc to sign any documents necessary to close the sale on the transferee's home. It also directs that the proceeds of sale be made payable to aecc since aecc does not take title to the property.
Aecc radon rider
this document must be signed by the resale purchaser if aecc has ordered a radon inspection on the home. The resale purchaser is acknowledging that the home has been tested for radon and that the radon level is at an acceptable level (under 4.0 pico curies).
Aecc resale rider
this document must be signed by the resale purchaser. It is attached to and becomes part of the resale contract between aecc and the resale purchaser. This document protects aecc and the corporate client against law suits from the resale purchaser. It states that the home is being purchased in "as is" condition, that aecc has never occupied the property and has no other information about the condition of the property other than what has been stated on disclosure statements and property inspection. It also directs the resale purchaser to use aecc's designated title insurance company.
allowance
pay and special compensation
Amended value sale under appraisals
this is the same as an amended value sale, except that the resale contract is for less than the guaranteed purchase offer. The transferee is normally guaranteed the guaranteed purchase offer amount even though the resale contract is less.
Amended value sale
when aecc makes a guaranteed purchase offer to the transferee, the transferee can continue to market the property during the term of their acceptance period. If the transferee receives an acceptable resale offer for more than the guaranteed offer, the transferee signs the aecc contract of sale at the "amended" guaranteed purchase offer amount (i.e. the resale offer amount). Aecc then signs the resale contract with the resale purchaser. Aecc is listed as the seller of the property on the hud-1 closing statement.
Appraisal process
the marketing company will facilitate the ordering of appraisals on the transferee's home. These appraisals are done by designated appraisers who are familiar with relocation appraisals. The appraisers will determine a value that the home is worth based upon comparable home sales. Normally, two appraisals are ordered on a property. If the lower appraisal is within 95% of the higher appraisal, the appraisals are averaged and that amount becomes the guaranteed purchase offer. If the appraisals are out of range, a third appraisal is ordered and the guaranteed purchase value: value placed offer becomes the average of the two closest appraisals.

The transferee is listed as the seller on the hud-1 settlement statement. This process is not considered prudent since it raises irs questions for reimbursed expenses.
Assignment of escrow
this form must be signed by the transferee if the transferee's lender has an escrow account. Since aecc gives credit to the transferee for the amount of money in this account, this document instructs the lender to send any funds remaining in the escrow account to aecc when the mortgage is paid off.

All doors and windows to the property must be sealed at least 24 to 48 hours prior to the test. If the radon level exceeds 4.0 pico curies per liter, it is an unacceptable amount according to the environmental protection agency. The transferee is then required to "mitigate" or decrease the level by sealing cracks or installing a system to circulate air to bring the amount of radon to an acceptable level.

The brokers agree to pay the referral fee because they look to the marketing company as a continued source of business.

Marketing companies use these referral fees as a source of income and may share a portion of the referral fees with the corporate client.

When the transferee sells their property to aecc, it is on a cash basis and there are no closing costs reimbursed to the transferee in connection with the sale. Therefore, there is no tax liability in connection with the sale. Aecc, as owner of the property, pays all expenses associated with the sale of the property and bills these expenses to the corporate client.

Form 4782 was a document the irs required employers provide to employees who received reimbursed relocation expenses. Although no longer required, aecc believes this is a very useful tool that provides the relocated employee with information they may need to complete irs form 3903 and file their personal tax return. Thus, aecc continues to provide the information in the form of a rtr.
