Question:

We have not lived in the house for years. How do we complete seller disclosures to a potential buyer?

Answer:

California disclosure laws contain several types of property disclosures that are unique to our state. The full disclosure document can be more than 60 pages in length and often requires an engineer, geologist, land surveyor and/or other property integrity professionals.

We walk our sellers through the various disclosures and assess whether we need to consult a specialist such as a geologist to identify and disclose any compromising ground features that may damage the foundation. Because some cities and counties require additional disclosures, such as statements regarding the neighborhood, we carefully evaluate the home and ensure the disclosures are fully completed to the extent of the requirements.
