Staff recommends City Commission approval to execute the Second Amendment of the Purchase and Sales Contract with Navroz F. Saju and Azim F. Saju extending the due diligence period to November 30, 2006 and closing date to January 5, 2007.
On September 12, 2005 the City Commission approved the sales contract to allow the Saju’s to purchase the subject property for a selling price of $600,000 contingent upon an appraisal. However the appraisal conducted by Pomeroy Appraisal Associates of Florida, Incorporated determined the property fee simple value to be $720,000. Therefore, the first amendment to the contract was made on January 23, 2006 to allow both parties consent to the new purchase price based on the appraised value.
The second amendment will allow for an extension of the due diligence period to November 30, 2006, extension of the closing date to January 5, 2007.
