On an agreement of sale, what should be included and does the buyer or seller prepare it? Does the seller have to prepare a
"Sellers Disclosure Document"?
I have had a difficult time and expense trying to purchase a Hud property and a REO property.
So I decided to stay away from foreclosure's and look at FSBO or properties listed by brokers who represent the public.

The first step in a Real Estate Transaction is for the Buyer to make an Offer, so I'd imagine that s/he has to be the one to prepare it (who else would know what the Offer amount will be ?).

In some jurisdictions, it's still a 2 step process with a Buyer making an Offer on what is called a "Binder"; but it's not actually binding unless the Seller also signs the Binder . . . . thereby agreeing not to sell to someone else before a comprehensive and detailed Purchase and Sales Agreement (Contract) can be drafted by the two of them.

Without a Broker being involved, you can hire a Conveyance Attorney to prepare these documents from scratch. Stationery stores used to offer blank forms that could be used for these purposes; and maybe Legal Zoom offers something similar.

Hiring an attorney would be the safest move.

I agree on the attorney. Better safe than sorry.
