Need purchase and sale agreement

Hi all;

My wife and I just came to terms with a private seller for a boat. We want to put a purchase and sales agreement in place, but all I have found so far are ones that assumes there is a broker involved.

Does anyone have one that is written for two private parties?

All parties, and the boat, are located in North Carolina.

Thanks!

Chris

I bought an editable sale agreement as well as a bill of sale from an online source: LawDepot.com. They send you a MS Word document which you can tailor to your circumstances.

Would it hold up in a dispute in court? Who knows?

unless it's a relatively small expense, these mail-order and so=called standard broker agreements are almost worthless if a dispute ever arises.
There was a recent thread on this subject you could search. As long as there are no problems, they are fine but in that circumstance, you would not need it in the first instance.
Assuming we're talking at least 6 figures, I can't emphasize enough the need for a sound agreement.

My post in this tread Offer Letter has the form that you need. Just cross out the references to brokers, insert someone else to hold the deposit, I suggest that you use an attorney.
