    just signed contracts to sell our house today
    after signing i noticed that my middle name was spelt incorrectly on the contract -an extra letter was added (name still pronounced the same)

    is this something i should.be seeking to rectify?
    we would rather not go through the whole signing process again as it may push out the cooling off period another day
    purchaser is paying cash

    thanks for the help

    Three seconds of liquid paper would fix that. (A quality photocopy will disguise evidence of the liquid paper..amend and utter is a common practice in the Druitt).).
