Legal Q&A | Can I give a blank form to one of my friends?

QUESTION: One of my good friends has reached a verbal agreement to buy a house from an unrepresented seller. She asked me if I could send her a blank version of the standard contract form that I typically use in a residential transaction. Is it OK for me to email her a copy of the Offer to Purchase and Contract (form 2-T)?
