Could anyone please comment on this issue:
I had made an agreement to sell an apartment and was at the notary office together with the buyer to finalize the deal.
Following clause was included in the document: "The parties are informed about the Polish civil law no 359 (?) which makes the parties tied to this contract for a period of twelve months."
I tried to convince the notary that this was unreasonable in case the buyer should fail to come forward with the payment as agreed. I mean, if he should not obtain the credit from his bank how could I be staying with the contract for twelve months not beeing able to close a deal with an other client?
I was told that this is the law, my question is of course if it's correct?
