The Connecticut residential purchase and sale agreement is a contract used by a prospective homeowner (the buyer) to submit an offer to purchase residential real estate from an owner (the seller). Apart from the purchase price proposal, the contract lists the buyer’s conditions that the seller must approve of in order for the deal to go through.
The agreement specifies the closing date, deadlines for mortgage approval and down payments, whether personal property is included in the sale, and rules concerning property inspection. The offer will be submitted to the seller, after which they can decide whether to accept the offer as-is, renegotiate the terms, or deny the proposal altogether.
