Wyoming Residential Purchase and Sale Agreement

Create a high quality document online now!

A Wyoming residential purchase and sale agreement is a contract used to negotiate the acquisition of real property. Initially, the buyer will execute the document to outline the financial terms and other conditions of the purchase. The seller can then either accept the offer as-is, decline the proposal altogether, or adjust the terms to suit their preferences thus continuing the negotiation process. An agreement is only legal if both parties accept the terms and sign the contract. According to § 33-28-303(c), if the seller has employed the services of a real estate agent to manage the transaction, the agent is legally required to inform the buyer of any known adverse material defects.

Buyer Beware

Wyoming statutes do not specify a law requiring a seller to disclose material defects to a potential buyer. Therefore, a seller cannot be held responsible for defects discovered after the property is purchased. However, a seller is prohibited from knowingly misrepresenting the property during the sale. (§ 40-12-105)

Required Disclosures
