California Civil Code requires that sellers disclose deaths that occurred on the property within the last 3 years. Information about some causes of death (e.g. HIV, AIDs complications) is not to be disclosed - please see the code for more information.
How Do I Comply With This Disclosure Requirement?
The California Association of Realtors (CAR) version of the California Transfer Disclosure Statement (TDS) has a section which enables sellers to satisfy this disclosure requirement. CAR form SPQ "Seller Property Questionnaire" or ESD "Exempt Seller Disclosure" may also be used.
We will provide you a copy of any CAR disclosure form for free upon submitting a flat fee MLS listing through our website.
