A HELPFUL TIP FROM SCR
Do mandatory evacuation orders automatically extend “business days” or other deadlines in SCR Form 310 or other pending real estate contracts?
Unless there is language in your contract that contemplates evacuation orders, the “business days” definition remain the same. Although SCR Form 310 provides for an automatic extension “for an unsatisfied contingency through no fault of either party,” the safest practice is to encourage your agents to seek extensions today to protect against any confusion or delays (whether it’s because of a contingency or not.)
