A real estate seller's primary goal is to sell the real estate for as much money as possible, as quickly as possible. Disclosing defects that were found are often not to be in the seller's best interest – however, the failure to disclose defects in real estate can lead to serious problems for the buyer of the real estate. The real estate seller has a legal duty to disclose all real estate defects that may have an impact on the value of the property, including:


  • Defective Windows or Doors
  • Termite Infestations
  • Cracked Slabs
  • Structural Defects
  • Water Damage
  • Water Intrusion
  • Toxic Mold/Sick House
  • Defective Design
  • Building Code Violations
  • Inadequate Roofing
  • Defects in Roofing Installation
  • Dry Rot
  • Electrical Problems
  • Poor Drainage
  • Defects in Heating or Cooling Systems
  • Cracks in the Walls, Floors or the Roof
  • Landscaping Defects
  • Neighborhood Noises

If you purchased real estate that you suspect has a defect the seller of the real estate failed to disclose, you have the right to take legal action to recover the cost to correct the undisclosed real estate defect or even undo the transaction.
