What Is Right of First Offer?

Right of first offer is an agreement that when an owner is ready to sell or lease an asset, the holder of the right of first offer gets the first chance to buy or lease the property within a given time frame. Once the holder has made the offer, the seller is able to accept or refuse the offer. If the seller refuses it, he or she can move on to a third party offer.

Right of First Offer: In Depth

Most commonly, right of first offer is used in contracts within the real estate market and in the selling and buying of businesses. Typically, the stipulation is included in a tenant-landlord contract and in businesses with business partners and investors.

The most practical reason to have right of first offer is for a commercial tenant. If the owner decides to sell, it would give the tenant a chance to make an offer. If accepted, this prevents the need for the tenant to move his or her business to a new location.

Angel Investors

  • 6 min read

Many entrepreneurs have "angels" watching over them, quite literally. These financial and advisory angels (or angel investors) are often responsible for the success or failure of a startup. There are no set rules to what angels can do for an entrepreneur and what they can expect in return. That's why angels are sought after with such intensity and why you must be especially vigilant in reviewing their offers.

What Are Angel Investors?

Angel investors are typically wealthy individuals or fellow entrepreneurs — rarely professional venture capitalists — who are willing to do whatever it takes to get a startup off the ground, which usually means money.
