Why do I need a contract for selling member’s interest? An Agreement for the Sale of Member’s Interest sets out the terms of the sale of a member’s share in a Close Corporation to another person. A number of issues need to be negotiated during a business’ sale of equity, such as the purchase price, the due diligence process, the handover process, confidentiality, restraints and warranties. These issues need to be included in the Sale of Member’s Interest Agreement to eliminate uncertainty and ensure that both sellers and the purchaser understand their respective rights and obligations during the sale.
