Real Estate in Delaware

There are some specific elements to the residential property sale disclosure process in the state of Delaware that are unique. The disclosure is a form created by the state, and it must be filled out by the seller and submitted to the seller's real estate agent to be distributed to any potential buyers. In other words, the agent cannot prepare the disclosure form on behalf of the seller. The seller must also disclose any potential radon hazards as the results of tests done on the property. While the law does not specifically state that sellers must get radon testing done to list their property, it is implied that recent radon test results would be a good thing to include with the rest of the disclosure information.

In Delaware, the disclosure form is seven pages long and a completed form must be presented to anyone who expresses interest in buying the property. The disclosure includes a section where the seller must disclose the condition of approximately 40 home appliances. The seller must indicate if items such as all smoke detectors and refrigerators in the house that will be included in the sale are in good working order or not. The law does not specify what actions are to be taken if the seller indicates that one or more of the appliances are not in good working order.
