Failure to Disclose

In Ohio a seller is required to fill out a Residential Property Disclosure Form. This is a specific document required for the transfer of real estate within the state of Ohio that outlines details of the property known to the seller as well as all repairs that occurred in the past five years. Many times sellers fail to disclose everything they know because they are afraid it will prevent the sale of their home. However, by not doing so they are giving the buyer a claim for damages. The buyer has the right to sue for damages to obtain the home he thought he was buying. For example, if the seller knows the basement of his home leaks but fails to disclose it, the buyer can later sue the seller for the cost to repair the basement and make it dry.
