What Should I Disclose To Potential Buyers?

Beyond your legal obligation, it’s a good rule of thumb to disclose everything you know to the potential buyer.

That doesn’t mean you have to seek out things to disclose. However, if you know of a problem or risk that the home inspector didn’t catch, it’s still a good idea to be honest and forthcoming to your buyer.

Here are some things to always disclose:

Environmental issues such as lead paint, asbestos, radon, and mold.
Pest infestations such as rodents, insects or reptiles, especially termites or carpenter ants.
Natural hazards such as flood zones or drainage issues.
Construction defects or system problems such as electrical, plumbing, etc.
