Yes. In dealing with future delays or possible contract cancellations, we suggest the following language be used in the Further Conditions of the Purchase Agreement:
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, the parties agree and acknowledge that in the event either the Buyer, Buyer’s lender, Seller, any of their respective service providers, government agency or any other agency becomes the subject of a voluntary or mandatory COVID-19 virus quarantine or closure prior to or at the time of Closing, or if Buyer or Seller is the party to another transaction that is delayed as a result of a voluntary or mandatory COVID-19 virus quarantine, that results in the parties inability to perform on the Closing Date, the closing may be automatically extended by either party for a period of up to ten (10) business days after such quarantine or closure order is lifted, up to a maximum delay of thirty (30) days unless the parties otherwise mutually agree to extend the performance date further. Upon the expiration of any automatic or agreed extension, either party may terminate this Agreement without any further liability to the other party, and the Earnest Money shall be immediately refunded to the Buyer.
This protective language can also be used for transactions already in place by adding it in an Amendment or other applicable legal form.
