Residential Purchase Agreement

From the GLVAR:

“The 2013 Forms Committee worked hard to provide GLVAR Members forms that comply with NV Law. Please find below revisions on the Residential Purchase Agreement (RPA), Supplemental Property Disclosure Form, and see information on the new FIRPTA Affidavit form. If you have any questions please email the Forms Committee at

“Due to a formatting error the initial section on pages 2-11 of the Residential Purchase Agreement have been omitted. While zipForm fixes the issue we suggest that Members have both parties initial each page even if there is no pre-printed area.”
