- I haven’t seen Carlton Sheets but I use a standard California Board of Realtors contract. Even a couple of sentences written on a napkin can be a valid contract. Most of the verbiage in the CA contract is actually written to protect the realtor. Legally though, the seller must provide you with a completed disclosure statement (even if the house is being sold “as is”).
- You are not yet thinking like a business person if you give up after one call to an attorney. If you are in the S.F. Bay area you can give Lamont Shadowens (attorney) a call at 650-368-0200. He will just charge you a few bucks to review the contract.
