What Are Real Estate Forms?

Each state in the country has its own legislation regarding the purchase, use, and lease of property, including the type of real estate purchase contract used, the methods of closing sales and the paperwork required from landlords and tenants. The different types of forms in real estate can be sorted into the following main categories:

1. Real Estate Purchase Agreements

A real estate purchase agreement - also known as a real estate purchase contract - is a legally-binding agreement between the parties participating in the exchange of real property for money. The contract usually includes an identification of the parties and a description of their rights, a description of the property, the selling price, the prospective date of closing, and any contingencies that must be met before the sale can go through.

2. Real Estate Bills of Sale

A real estate bill of sale is a written contract that documents the sale of any property and lists the essentials terms of the transaction.

3. Land Contracts

A land contract - not to be confused with a land purchase agreement - is one of the more trickier real estate documents. It is a form that records the transfer of land from its original owner - or the seller - to the purchaser. Most commonly, the original owner will provide the buyer with a certain agreed-upon loan with a down payment that the buyer will then repay in installments over a set period of time. The seller remains the legal owner of the property until the debt is repaid in full.

4. Offers To Purchase Real Estate

An offer to purchase is a form used by a potential buyer to signify their wish to place a bid on a property on the market. The form contains a description of the property, the offering price, and the proposed closing date. If the offer to purchase is firm, the buyer is willing to purchase the property without any further negotiations. If the offer is conditional, the seller and buyer will have to make changes to the agreement before the purchase can be made official.

5. Building Permits

A building permit is a legal government-issued authorization for the construction of a new building or for renovating an existing building. Permits are used to ensure that the project is safe and is compliant with local laws for zoning and land use.

6. Deed Forms

A deed is a form that is used to transfer the ownership of property from the grantor to the grantee. There are several types of deeds used when selling residential real estate: warranty deeds, special warranty deeds, quit claim deeds, bargain and sale deeds, and grant deeds.

7. Bond Forms

A bond - or a fixed income investment - represents debt obligations and is a form of borrowing funds. After issuing a bond, the individual or business receives a regular loan that must be repaid over time.

8. Rental Agreements

Rental agreements and lease agreements are the legal forms that outline the rights and responsibilities of an owner of an item or property - referred to as the lessor - and the person willing to pay rent for using the item or occupying the property - also known as a renter or lessee.

9. Rental Forms

Rental forms - also referred to as landlord-tenant forms - are the forms used during the commercial or residential lease of property and include lease applications, lease termination forms, home inspections, and eviction notices. Knowing the obligations of landlords and how to best comply with them can save you a great deal of time and money spent dealing with tenant problems.

How to Fill out Real Estate Forms?

While the language of real estate forms may vary state-by-state, the key provisions to be included in any legal agreement concerning real estate should include the following:

  1. General Information. This includes the names and signatures of all participating parties, the street address of the property, the exact dates of filing, and a certification by a notary public - if applicable.
  2. Financing Information. This includes the sale price and mortgage amount (for the sale of property) and the deposit and renting price (for leasing property).
  3. Closing and Possession Dates. Especially applicable for sales, these describe the date when the transaction is considered to be final and the date when the buyer can take full possession of the property.
  4. Contingencies. A contingency is an event that gives any of the parties the right to back out of the contract.
