A New York residential real estate purchase and sale agreement is a written agreement that takes place between the seller of a piece of property and a potential buyer. The purchaser will use the agreement form to present their financial offer to the real estate seller. On the document, the buyer will list the terms of their offer including how the payment will be financed, when payments and deposits will be made, and the duration of time that the offer will remain open. If the seller is including other property in the sale, such as furniture or appliances, these items can be included within the agreement. Before the purchase agreement is signed, State law requires that the seller provide the buyer with a property disclosure that describes the condition of the residence and its utilities.
