A seller’s disclosure is the document that states any unseen problems or defects that can affect the value. This is an upfront account of the property condition that helps prevent problems being discovered during an inspection. Sellers often like this because it then prevents buyers asking for money to fix these “overlooked” problems. This is beneficial to buyers because they will want to know everything about the condition of the home in advance.
Often a buyer will encounter a seller disclosure form, which will ask detailed questions about the home, and the seller will then go on to explain how the price of the house takes these problems into account. The buyer will then decide if the home is really worth what is being asked for it, or if the repairs are too heavy a cost.
Despite, however, these seller disclosure forms, one of the largest controversial areas surrounding buying and selling homes are the failure to shed light on defects. The broker is usually first to be blamed for this, but the seller is the one who is responsible for recording any and all of these defects that may pose a problem. As a buyer, always make sure to ask specific questions about the home and its condition.
