The Kentucky residential purchase and sale agreement is used to set forth terms and conditions for transferring homeownership between a buyer and seller. Prospective buyers will first draft the agreement to communicate their purchase offer to the seller. The offer will relay the sales price, deposit amounts, duration of the offer’s validity, closing date, contingencies, and whether the sale includes appliances and personal property currently situated on the property. After reviewing the proposal, the seller may choose to accept the offer as-is, reject it, or negotiate with the buyer via a counteroffer. If the offer is accepted and signed, the agreement becomes final, and the parties will be bound to the conditions stated therein.
