Real Property Disclosure

When selling residential real property in Ohio, whether through a real estate agent or directly, the seller must provide the buyer with a Residential Property Disclosure Form, which is available here.  In essence, the seller is required to disclose known existing defects to the property, and corrected defects.

There are a number of exceptions to the requirement of giving the form, including

  • The sale from a decedent’s estate or trust.
  • The sale to a tenant who has occupied the property for more than a year before purchase.
  • If the seller has inherited the property and has not resided in the property for the year prior to the sale.

This list is not exhaustive.
