Conditions are requirements within the Agreement of Purchase and Sale that must be met for the sale to go through. Don’t let conditions in an offer to purchase intimidate you — once you understand what’s required, you can go into the buying process armed with knowledge and confidence.
A conditional offer depends on whether the respective conditions will be met. These are intended to ensure that the buyer is protected from unforeseen upsets that would complicate or prevent the sale. When any of the conditions are not satisfied, the buyer or seller (depending on who applied the condition), can back out of the agreement without any penalty. You are able to waive the conditions when they have been fulfilled to you and your lawyers satisfaction.
