A Rhode Island residential purchase and sale agreement lays out the terms and conditions required in order to transfer the ownership of a residential property from a seller to a buyer. The document will relay the property type (i.e., single-family home, condominium, etc.) and clearly define the purchase price and any buyer contingencies. It lays out details regarding the purchase price and whether the sale is contingent on the buyer qualifying for financing from a financial institution.

Until the document is signed, the current property owner is able to counteroffer and receive any other offers that may be available. Once both parties agree to all the terms and conditions, they may sign the agreement and transfer the ownership on the agreed-upon date.
