A Connecticut residential purchase and sale agreement is a written contract between a person selling a property (seller) and the person intent on purchasing said property (buyer). The price of the property will be negotiated by the two parties as will certain terms and conditions of their arrangement and the potential transaction. Once both parties sign the document, the contract becomes legally binding and cannot be terminated unless both parties agree.

While it is in the buyer’s best interest to inspect the property and ensure that it is in good condition, the seller must, by law, disclose the current state of the property including any known defects. The seller is not required to make further inspections to discover issues that they had no previous knowledge of, they need only disclose problems of which they are currently aware.
