The seller’s disclosure that you will complete is your opportunity to disclose any defects in the property. Not only is it illegal not to disclose, but by doing so, you are protecting yourself from future legal action. Your seller’s disclosure is no substitute for the buyer’s inspection, and just because you disclose it doesn’t mean you need to repair it. You cannot over disclose. Begin organizing now by gathering information about the following areas:
–Home Systems: HVAC, plumbing, electrical (age of each)
–Roof (age), foundation, basement issues, water entry
–Termites and other pests (and any warranties)
–Homeowner’s Association Information (covenants, dues, contact information)
This is not an exhaustive list, but it will get you moving in the right direction!
