2017 Georgia (GAR) Contract Changes

Posted by Van Purser on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 at 12:17pm.

Seller’s Responsibility to Disclose

A big change this year is associated with the Sellers responsibility for disclosing latent or hidden defects, even when the property is being sold “AS IS”. 

Even if the Property is sold “as-is” Seller is required under Georgia law to disclose to the Buyer latent or hidden defects in the Property which Seller is aware and which could not have been discovered by the Buyer upon a reasonable inspection of the property.

 An oversight by the Seller could result in damages to the Buyer. (Don’t let your agent or Broker overlook this)
