A real estate transaction of virtually any sort will include a negotiated and well-drafted purchase agreement.
Parties need to have a familiarity with this sort of agreement in order to ensure that they cover all of their bases. This can lead to a truly successful real estate transaction.
Property and financing
Chron discusses the key components of a purchase agreement. This includes the property, financing, the basics and ownership.
Regarding property, the agreement needs to include a description in its entirety of the property in question. It should go into detail about any potential deficits in the property, too.
For financing, it should include the way the individual is paying for the purchase, such as through a mortgage or a loan. The basic financial terms needed for the sale should also be listed. A timeline for financing and terms for termination in the event of a lack of payment should also be included.
Basics and ownership
The basics refer to things like the parties involved, the type of sale, names and physical addresses of the parties, and if a deposit was paid. It also includes any important dates, such as times that payments are due by.
Finally, ownership information should include the affirmation that the seller has a right to sell the property in question.
Of course, it is possible to add more addendums and other information to a purchase agreement. These are the most basic components of its structure and the things that should be included in every purchase agreement, regardless of the parties involved or the property type in question.
