Seller’s Disclosure Notice

Posted by Morin Okuyiga // June 24, 2019

The SE Texas Record reports, “The buyers of a Houston property allege the sellers failed to disclose in the seller's disclosure notice that there was a septic system on the property that cost them more than $30,000 to replace. The suit alleging breach of contract and fraud by affirmative misrepresentation, states the plaintiffs and defendants entered into a contract on June 27, 2018, for the plaintiffs to purchase a property on Bammel Timbers Lane in Houston. The plaintiffs allege the defendants supplied them with a seller's disclosure notice but failed to include information stating that there was a septic/on-site sewer on the property. The defendants allegedly represented to the plaintiffs that there was not a septic system on the property when asked by the plaintiffs. The plaintiffs are seeking relief of up to $100,000, attorneys' fees, actual damages, attorneys' fees, and other relief deemed fit. They are represented by LeNatria Jurist of The Jurist Law Group PLLC in Houston. Seller's Disclosure Notice The Texas Property Code requires that most home sellers fill out a Seller's Disclosure Notice. The purpose of the form is to disclose any issues with the house you are selling that you are aware of and give the potential buyers information and a historical account of your home. Do All Sellers Have to Fill Out a Disclosure? While there are several exceptions to having to fill out a Seller’s Disclosure Notice, standard owner occupants always need to fill one out. Additionally, landlords are not exempt and must fill out a Seller’s Disclosure Notice. The below passage from the Texas Property Code lists those cases exempt from needing to provide a Seller’s Disclosure Notice. Is There Anything You Don’t Have to Disclose? According to Sec 5.008 of the Texas Property Code, you don’t have to “disclose information related to whether a death by natural causes, suicide, or accident unrelated to the condition of the property occurred on the property or whether a previous occupant had, may have had, has, or may have AIDS, HIV related illnesses, or HIV infection.” The purpose of this is to prevent buyers from making decisions based upon irrelevant information about prior owners of the property.
