A purchase and sales agreement may be the most important contract you ever sign. A P&S agreement is a legal contract between the buyer and seller of a property. The agreement may begin in a standard form, but attorneys for both parties may add to it. This can mean the finalized version may be complex and very detailed.

Some of the details contained in a purchase and sales agreement include:

  • Price of property

  • Mortgage information
  • Repairs or condition of property details
  • Details of concessions and contingencies

The ultimate goal of the agreement is to protect both the buyer and seller of a commercial or residential property in Massachusetts.
