SELLERS DISCLOSURE: Florida law requires home sellers to disclose any significant property defects that may not be easily visible to a buyer. The Florida Association of Realtors® provides a form to assist sellers in making the disclosures. Full disclosure is the best way to avoid potential issues relating to the history and condition of a home.  A seller is also required to inform buyers about any known changes in the neighborhood, association, zoning, school districts, etc.  While a real estate agent can provide perspective, we cannot offer legal advice. For legal questions, we encourage you to consult a real estate attorney.  Some areas to consider related to the property are:

  • Appliances
  • Air Conditioning
  • Roof repairs
  • Sink holes or settlement
  • Foundation
  • Structural issues
  • Water intrusion
  • Drainage or flooding
  • Termites or other pest issues
  • Stucco or siding 
  • Pools, Hot Tubs, Spas
  • Lead-based paint
  • Radon gas
  • Defective drywall
  • Mold history
  • Deed or title issues
  • Boundary / survey disputes
  • Unpermitted improvements


And issues relating to the surround areas shoule be disclosed, such as:

  • Airplane noise
  • Association issues
  • Sink holes
  • Road projects
  • Environmental issues
  • Governmental issues
  • CDD or tax issues
