Kansas Residential Purchase and Sale Agreement

The Kansas residential purchase and sale agreement is a document that a prospective home buyer will complete and deliver to a property seller to convey the terms of an official offer to purchase. The document informs the seller of the proposed sales price, closing date, closing costs, offer expiration date, and whether the sale is contingent upon the buyer obtaining a bank loan or selling currently-owned real estate. If the seller is unsatisfied with the terms of the initial proposal, they have the ability to alter the contract and make a counteroffer. Negotiations can continue until the parties reach a mutual arrangement, after which the buyer and seller must initial and sign the real estate purchase agreement to complete the transaction.
