Yes, beware of the Seller's Property Disclosure - there may be more than what is actually stated. I am living proof of that fact. Being a real estate agent, I should have known better.
Here is my living proof:
J) Do you know of any current flooding, drainage, settling or grading or erosion problems affecting the property? answer by seller: Yes.
When heavy rains, the pond overflows.
Ok, sounds understandable enough... but failed to tell us that most of our acreage goes underwater! This is the 4th time this year of severe flooding. And at times, you can't even tell where the driveway is, which is not safe to drive in or out during these times.
Side Yard (we live on 11 acres) More of side yard showing MUDDY waters
Getting closer to front yard area Front yard where we have 680 foot driveway to home
More of Driveway going to other side of front yard This is our front yard
Going towards pond area This is the pond area, that is 3x larger than normal
We should have been "smarter" by asking the seller to explain or tell more details on the "pond overflow" issue. Had we known, this would NOT have been the property we purchased. Our pole barn is under water again with inches of MUDDY water inside, our back detached garage that holds our yard equipment is also under water again. Thank goodness our basement has not flooded (yet). Sump pump barely rests.
So BEWARE of the Seller's Property Disclosure - there may be more than meets the eye!
