Updated June 13, 2022

A Texas residential purchase and sale agreement outlines the terms and conditions of an offer to purchase real estate. The document informs the seller of the amount the buyer is willing to pay and specifies various terms the seller must satisfy if the buyer is to agree to the sale. Other provisions can be established such as financial contingencies (e.g., the purchase is only possible if the bank approves a loan application) and the inclusion of permanent fixtures like an air conditioning unit or swimming pool.

After the seller reviews the proposal, they can adjust the terms through the submission of a counter-offer. Only after both parties sign the agreement will the sale be official and legally binding.

Buyer Beware

Texas property code states that when selling a property consisting of a single-family residence, the seller must disclose material defects to the buyer.

A buyer of a multi-family property does not have the same protection. Therefore, the buyer should conduct a full inspection before purchasing as any defects discovered “after the fact” are their responsibility. (§ 5.008)
