- When a property for sale becomes conditionally sold (C/S), this implies that the sellers have accepted an offer from a buyer conditional upon the seller and/or buyer being able to fulfill certain set out conditions. These conditions could include the buyer being able to obtain a satisfactory home inspection report, secured financing or the sale of a buyer's property. Commercial properties may have additional conditions. When a property is conditionally sold, the sellers cannot accept other offers.
