Washington Residential Purchase and Sale Agreement

Create a high quality document online now!

A Washington residential purchase and sale agreement is used when placing an offer to purchase real estate. The agreement initiates the negotiation process by indicating the buyer’s proposal to acquire the property. Included in the offer will be the requested purchase price and other conditions established by the buyer. The seller will have a designated period in which they can respond to the offer before it expires. During this time, the seller may alter the terms by submitting to the buyer a counter-offer. Should both parties come to an agreement on the purchase conditions, they can sign the document to create a legally binding commitment to transfer ownership of the property.

Within five (5) business days after the agreement is made, the seller must provide the buyer with a Seller’s Disclosure Statement detailing the condition of the property. After accepting the disclosure, the buyer will have three (3) business days to continue with the purchase or cancel the offer. If the buyer chooses to cancel the purchase, they must notify the seller in writing within the three (3) business-day period. Failure of the buyer to notify the seller within the designated period will constitute the buyer’s acceptance of the agreement.
