The Arizona residential purchase and sale agreement is a written arrangement detailing the terms and conditions to which the buyer and seller of a real estate transaction must comply. Typically, a real estate agent will work with the buyer to complete the agreement and come up with a purchase price to include in the contract.

Both parties have to agree on the price before the purchase agreement is signed. Furthermore, terms such as earnest money, escrow company, down payment, financing, warranties and contingencies, and the closing date will be outlined in the contract. It is the buyer’s duty to perform any inspections on the property, and if they find any issues, they may have the right to terminate the contract.

Sellers must provide written disclosure to buyers of residential property if the property being sold is located in the vicinity of a military airport or ancillary military facility.

5) Property Disclosure Statement

A seller must disclose any material defects or issues that may negatively affect the property’s value; i.e., information about the property’s condition that the seller already knows about.

When property is sold in an unincorporated area (i.e., not governed by a local municipal corporation, such as a city, county, town, etc.), the seller must provide this affidavit and disclosure form to the buyer at least seven (7) days before the transfer. This document serves to inform the buyer of certain aspects of the property including property access, water supply, zoning information, and proximity to military airfields.
