What if the buyer and seller make verbal agreements, either before or after the contract is signed? Are these agreements part of the contract?

Updated March 13, 2023.

No. The written contract is considered to reflect the entire agreement between the parties and no discussions or oral agreements will be considered to be part of the deal. Any such discussions should either be written into the contract, added to the contract as a written addendum which is signed by both parties or added to the contract as part of your attorney’s approval.
