The portion of the Deposit, if any, paid to Listing Broker upon default by Buyer, shall be split equally between Listing Broker and Cooperating Broker; provided however, Cooperating Broker’s share shall not be greater than the commission amount Listing Broker had agreed to pay to Cooperating Broker. 379 380 381 382 383 384 385 386 (b) SELLER DEFAULT: If for any reason other than failure of Seller to make Seller’s title marketable after reasonable diligent effort, Seller fails, neglects or refuses to perform Seller’s obligations under this Contract, Buyer may elect to receive return of Buyer’s Deposit without thereby waiving any action for damages resulting from Seller’s breach, and, pursuant to Paragraph 16, may seek to recover such damages or seek specific performance. 387 388 389 390 This Paragraph 15 shall survive Closing or termination of this Contract. 391 16.

This Paragraph 14 will not relieve Broker of statutory obligations under Chapter 475, F.S., as amended. For purposes of this Paragraph 14, Broker will be treated as a party to this Contract. This Paragraph 14 shall survive Closing or termination of this Contract. 356 357 358 359 360 361 362 363 delivered out of escrow.

If Estoppel Letter(s) or Seller’s affidavit, if any, differ materially from Seller’s representations and lease(s) provided pursuant to Paragraph 6, or if tenant(s)/occupant(s) fail or refuse to confirm Seller’s affidavit, Buyer may deliver written notice to Seller within 5 days after receipt of such information, but no later than 5 days prior to Closing Date, terminating this Contract and receive a refund of the Deposit, thereby releasing Buyer and Seller from all further obligations under this Contract.
