Unfortunate for the buyers, but,
Most buyers, upon knowing all the facts, seldom back away from their purchase decision and believe the facts or disclosures have all been set on the table.
It is the fear of the unknown, followed by its eventual discovery, which sends people in court.
“Peace of mind" is very relevant in the sale and transfer of residential property…it is the prime reason for including a qualified home inspector in the sales process.
Sellers should always obtain an independent professional property inspection to know the current condition of their property.
Begin by hiring the most qualified home inspector in your area. Once you’ve got the inspection report, attach a copy to your disclosure statement. Furthermore, explain in your disclosure statement that every effort has been made to discover and report all problematic conditions, but that you urge the buyers to hire their own home inspector, just in case, to ensure that no significant defects were missed by your inspector. In this way, you will have documented an unusually high degree of willingness to disclose all problems. In the unlikely event that surprise defects should surface after the close of escrow, it would appear unlikely that you had deliberately concealed the problems (and should a conflict proceed to legal action, your position would look very good to any fair minded judge).
I wonder if this will be brought up in court?
