Rather, it means that the land government, including the local assessment districts, cannot compel anyone to provide it with the sale price. There is an exception to this rule if you agree in advance on certain persons excluded from this agreement. For example, you may know that your uncle wants to buy your house, but he still has prior permission from his lender. Maybe you want to list the house on the market, but you won`t have to pay the commission if your uncle gets by.
