A well written and thought out DC real estate purchase agreement should contain provisions to govern issues such issues as to title to the property, the sale price, how financing is obtained, the structure of the deed to the property, when and where closing will take place, construction timelines and/or proposed improvements to the property as well as provisions for items like certificates of occupancy and delivery timeframes. All of these provisions and others must be specified in the real estate agreement to avoid disputes and delays.
