How to Buy a Home: What is the Source of Water?

Real Estate Agent with LoKation Real Estate

In this episode of the How to Buy a Home series I review the Source of Water Addendum. This document is part of the contract and gives basic information on the source of water for the subject property. I cover some of the additional due diligence you may want to pursue to make sure the water source allows for your intended uses.

Interesting how different locations deal with water when buying/selling a house. In NY, there was no specific water form - you either had a well or community/town/city water which was on the MLS listing. In MT, water rights are a big deal. Even if you have a well, you need to file for water rights when building the home and the rights are typically transferred. So we have a totally different water disclosure required here. Very interesting!

Yes, water rights are a big deal here in Colorado as well.  Very specific rights and uses of a somewhat scarce resource.  I'm from the midwest where water just is and there is an abundance of it.

Hi Sean, nice article. I liked the video. We have a Domestic Well Addendum but your Colorado version seems the be more comprehensive. Thanks.
