Selling Your Home > Full Disclosure
You are about to list your home. Since you have lived there for many years, you know that it is not perfect. There's a leak in the basement that is noticeable only after a heavy rain, the garage door sticks, the toilet in the master bath flows like a fountain, and the dishwasher is prone to work stoppages.
Every home has a few quirks. When it is time to sell your home, you have a choice of either making the repairs or letting the buyers know about the problems. Material defects that are potentially serious must be fully disclosed.
Some buyers will order a structural inspection in order to learn exactly what they will be getting. Even if the buyers don't ask for an expert to look at the house, it is the seller's responsibility to disclose any known defects in the property. Concealed problems may come back to haunt the seller after the closing. Many real estate lawsuits involve undisclosed defects, and the settlement of these cases makes the cost of repair or the price adjustment during the sales transaction look like a real bargain.
