You have a legal duty to provide full and accurate information about the property and to truthfully answer every question a buyer or agent may have.
If applicable, you must provide information about the presence of lead paint or urea formaldehyde foam insulation in the structure.
State environmental regulations require that any property which has a septic system, cesspool or other private waste disposal system must be inspected by a licensed inspector or soil evaluator within 2 years before a sale (3 years if pumped at least once a year).
