Disclosures

There are tons of different varieties of disclosures involved in almost any kind of real estate transaction. Whether it is lead-based paint and asbestos disclosures, disclosures about the neither real nor implied level of suitability for any kind of purpose a property may have or about various fixtures and mechanical components within a property, the number of disclosures that occur during a standard real estate transaction is very large.

Contracts

Whenever a real estate transaction goes through, there are tons of contracts that need to be signed. Everything comes down to an agreement which must be negotiated and formalized. While the contractual terms will naturally vary based on the individual property and the parties involved, the usual factors are the price, the limitation of legal liability the brokers assume and the fact that both parties have reviewed every disclosure document involved.

Escrow 

Since most types of property-related transactions use some kind of loan to make them work property, escrow is naturally an important factor in these kinds of deals. Escrow is simply a neutral third party holding onto funds to prove that they exist until every contractual detail is agreed upon and signed.
