A: I am unaware of either of the terms you have referred to, hard and soft, appearing in either of the two most common real estate purchase contracts used in the chicago metro area. If you were to provide the specific language appearing in the contract the question may be capable of answering. Did you work with an attorney or a real estate broker in the transaction? If so, you may want to start by asking either or both of those professionals as they would be familiar with the contract and would be in the best position to answer your question.
