A Louisiana residential purchase and sale agreement is a template contract used for selling livable property from one party to another. The duties and obligations of both parties are outlined in the document, including the agreed purchase price and buying conditions, financing options, and any additional closing costs.

Louisiana law requires the seller to furnish the buyer with a disclosure statement detailing the condition of the home before ownership can be transferred. The agreement is finalized once both the buyer and seller (or the seller’s agent) sign the document.
