Do I have to disclose?

Intentionally withholding information about a property when you sell can have serious legal consequences. Talk to your Texas REALTOR® and attorney and make sure you understand your disclosure responsibilities. You don't want to inadvertently leave something out - and then deal with the expense, hassles, and possible legal consequences later. The TAR Seller's Disclosure Notice asks sellers to provide buyers with copies of inspections reports from the past 4 years.

Disclosure also applies to federal laws. For example, those selling homes built before 1978 must provide buyers with specific information regarding lead-based paint.

Don't be afraid to disclose information about your property. Disclosure laws were created to protect buyers, but they also protect sellers. If all the information about a property is revealed up front, you're less likely to be involved in disputes after the sale.CONTACT TIFFANY SHARKEY OR TONYA PEEK FOR ALL YOUR REAL ESTATE QUESTIONS 214-356-4472.
