Property Disclosure Law in California

California, like many other states, requires property sellers to advise, in writing, pertinent details about the property they are selling or intend to sell. The disclosure rules apply to nearly all California property sellers, however large or small the home may be.

One of the many reasons disclosure is so necessary is because potential home buyers need to fully understand what issues or potential issues on a property exist to determine if they can truly proceed with the purchase and if they have sufficient resources to purchase the property in light of the problems. The process of disclosure also includes suggesting a reasonable purchase price and knowing what possible repairs or upgrades are needed for the home to make it livable.

If a court finds that the property owner did not reasonably demonstrate property disclosure by outlining important details directly related to the value of the home, that property owner may be sued.

Client Reviews
You can tell they really care, and that's so important. They were always calling to check in, always wanted me to be comfortable, handled everything for me (even calling me an uber when my car was in the shop), worked very hard from beginning straight to the last minute. Having that kind of firm behind you makes you feel really safe. Great experience, thanks. Sama
Thanks Mr. Zar! You did a great job, I’ll be sure to refer people over to you, there are just too many lawyers out there giving the profession a bad name, glad to have your type around. Gerry
Matt drove all the way to my house, after I called him the night before. Don’t know of any other lawyers that would do that. He helped comfort me, explained everything to me very honestly, and delivered on everything he promised. It’s hard to find someone so dedicated, so I thank the Bridgewater Law Group from the bottom of my heart. Aida
