A Pennsylvania residential purchase and sale agreement establishes a legal arrangement between a buyer and a seller in a real estate transaction. The agreement addresses a variety of terms including the agreed-upon purchase price, personal items to remain on the property, closing conditions, earnest money, and other financial contingencies. Ownership of the property can only be transferred lawfully if the buyer and seller consent to the contract terms and inscribe their signatures on the agreement. According to § 7304, before a contract can be signed, the seller must furnish to the buyer a Property Disclosure Statement mentioning any known material defects which could affect the buyer’s decision to purchase.
