Standard Ohio Real Estate Purchase Agreement

The Ohio Residential Property Purchase and Sale Agreement is a document used during the purchase of real estate by a licensed real estate owner or real estate agent. To begin the process, a potential buyer sketches out the provisions of their offer in the agreement and deliver it to the seller for evaluation. The information provided in the document relates to the amount of the purchase, serious money, inspection procedures, financing terms, and necessary disclosure statements (see “Related Information” below for information on the information required in Ohio). The seller can then modify the proposal by responding with a counter-offer, unless he accepts the initial offer as presented. If both parties accept the terms and sign the contract before they expire, the document is complete and legally binding. The laying of lead-based paint – provides buyers with information about toxic colors that may have been used on a property. Owners of a home built before 1978 must make this disclosure available to buyers before signing a contract of sale. Lead-based Color Disclosure (42 U.S. Code § 4852d) – The risks associated with exposure to lead-colored paint must be notified to the potential buyer of homes built before 1979. Literature revealing the nature of the hazards associated with dangerous goods must be delivered to the buyer at the same time as the contract of sale. Residential Property Advertising Form (§ 5302.30) – When selling a residential property, the owner must describe the condition of his property with this disclosure statement.

The completed document must be given to the buyer before signing a sales contract. If the buyer has not yet received the disclosure when entering into a contract, he may be entitled to withdraw his offer and cancel the purchase. Note that the disclosure obligation does not apply in the circumstances referred to in section 5302.30(B)(2). Real estate purchase contracts usually include promises and provisions guaranteeing the condition of a property. Many states require sellers to disclose explicit information about the condition of a property. In states where this is necessary and where a seller intentionally conceals such information, they can be prosecuted for fraud. This is a contract for all parties interested in the sale and purchase of real estate in the state of Ohio. Sellers and buyers must sign this contract as soon as they have agreed on the terms of the transaction. In Ohio, sellers must enter into a contract for the sale of real estate and the following disclosure statement so that it can be considered legally binding: the offer includes the purchase price and additional terms set by the buyer. The seller is given a period within which he can respond to the offer before it expires. During this period, the seller may modify the conditions by submitting a counter-offer to the buyer.

If both parties reach an agreement on the terms of purchase, they can sign the document in order to create a legally binding obligation to transfer ownership of the property. The Ohio sales contract refers to the complexity of a transaction in which land is exchanged for a sum of money. . . .
