I'm not clear on how the seller can force the buyer to waive the contingency for sell of other property if the seller has a back up offer that the seller wants to accept?

Hi Mike, Seller's ability to "force" Buyer to waive it is provided in Para. B of the Addendum: "If Seller accepts a written offer to sell the Property, Seller shall notify Buyer (1) of such acceptance AND (2) that Seller requires Buyer to waive the Contingency. Buyer must waive the Contingency on or before the _____ day after Seller's notice to Buyer; otherwise the contract will terminate automatically and the earnest money will be refunded to Buyer."  Therefore, if Seller accepts a back-up, Seller can "force" the Buyer to waive the contingency under this paragraph in the sense that if Buyer does not waive it after Seller has notified Buyer, the contract automatically terminates.
