California Health & Safety Code § 25400.28 requires that if there is a toxic contamination by an illegal controlled substance on a property, and upon receipt of a clean-up order from the Department of Toxic Substances Control or a Local Health Officer, the property owner must notify the prospective buyer and provide a copy of the order. The prospective buyer must acknowledge, in writing, the receipt of a copy of the order.
Sellers typically comply with this by checking the appropriate box (Section II, C.1) on the California Transfer Disclosure Statement and attaching a copy of the order. The California Association of Realtors (CAR) also makes available a form "Methamphetamine Contamination Notice" which can be used to assist in complying with this requirement.
