Consequences When Home Sellers Fail to Disclose
A seller who does not disclose known defects can be subject to a lawsuit
by the buyer once the defect is found. In some circumstances, a seller
can be found guilty of fraud if they failed to disclose known facts. In
Connecticut, the statute of limitation for fraudulent nondisclosure is
three years from the act or omission.
Disclosure laws cover these major home systems and conditions:
- Property drainage issues
- Plumbing and swage problems
- Roof defects
- Any type of water leakage
- Neighbor disputes and boundary issues
- Air conditioning or heating system problems
- Foundation instabilities or cracks
