Property Disclosure Statement Forms by State

What Is a Property Disclosure Statement?

Throughout most states, when a property is sold, it is the seller’s responsibility to complete a Property Disclosure Statement. This notifies the buyer of any potential negative aspects of the property such as damages or defaults to the property, whether it is at risk of fires or floods, if it is near a military base, or if it ever housed illegal activities.

Alternate Names:

  • Seller's Property Disclosure Statement;
  • Property Condition Disclosure Statement;
  • Seller’s Disclosure Statement.

Once a Property Condition Disclosure Statement is completed it must be turned over to the buyer before the purchase is finalized so the buyer is well aware of any possible risks of the purchase.
