Residential Disclosure Tip

lobby art
River Towers is located in Fairfax County

Agents should never fill out a disclosure form for the seller. An agents duty is to advise the sellers of the state’s disclosure laws and the sellers obligations there under. Using disclosure forms adds a layer of protection to all parties in the transaction. However the forms themselves do not replace an agents independent responsibility to disclose all material property defects known by the agent.
