Contract Series Paragraph 1

George Clements ~ Greenville, SC Real Estate


The first paragraph in the standard South Carolina Contract for Sale is "OFFER AND DESCRIPTION."   The paragraph looks something like this:

 1. OFFER AND DESCRIPTION: ___________________________________________________(Purchaser)
agrees to buy and _______________________________________________________________________(Seller)
agrees to sell all that lot or parcel of land, with the buildings and improvements thereon, if any located in
____________________________________________ County, South Carolina, (the “Property”) and being described as follows:
Street _____________________________________________City_________________________ Zip_____________________ Subdivision__________________________ TaxMap # __________________________Legal Lot #______________


This paragraph is telling some of the basics of the contract.  It tells who the purchaser and seller are and what is being sold.  The tax map and legal lot numbers can be found by going to the Greenville County GCGIS search.  Sometimes the property will not be in a subdivision.  If this is the case, we would just fill in "other" or "NA."
