Real Estate in Mississippi

Many states have taken the time to outline the responsibilities of real estate agents in property transactions to eliminate any unfair practices. The state of Mississippi is one of the states that has decreed that the agent retained by the seller must work on behalf of the seller and have the seller's best interests in mind. If a buyer wants to get the expert advice of a real estate agent, then the state of Mississippi recommends that the seller hire their own real estate agent. Mississippi state law also makes it mandatory that a third-party be named to hold the property as it transfers from the seller to the buyer.

Mississippi real estate sales contracts can be, and often are, filled with contingencies placed on the arrangement by the buyer. Along with the mandatory disclosures required by sellers in the state of Mississippi, the sellers also have to make sure that each part of the buyer contingency list is also taken care of. For example, the buyer may require that the roof be repaired and that third-party verification of the repair be provided before the deal can be finalized. If the seller does not meet this contingency, the buyer can legally void the sales contract.
