This month’s question was sent in by Patricia. Thank you, Patricia! Enjoy your steak!


Q. I inherited a home from my mother recently. She lived in a small town near Palestine, TX and died in the home. I never lived in the home. Am I required to fill out a seller’s disclosure to give a potential buyer?

A. Irma, since you inherited the home and never occupied it, you are not required per the Texas Property Code to provide a sellers disclosure, and unless the cause of death was related to a condition of the property or by other than natural causes, then you are not required to disclose that information either. On another note, it is always a good idea to disclose everything that might influence a buyer’s decision in order to avoid possible trouble later. You can write a letter in your own hand as your method of disclosure. I recommend consulting an attorney if you have any further in-depth questions about this. Dale Ross.
