What every seller needs to know about home inspection laws in New Jersey

As a seller, it's important to understand the home inspection laws in New Jersey to ensure a successful real estate transaction.

Under the law, home sellers are required to disclose any known defects or issues with their property to potential buyers. This means that if you are aware of any problems with your home, such as a leaky roof or faulty electrical wiring, you must disclose this information to buyers before they make an offer.

Additionally, buyers are entitled to a home inspection prior to purchasing a property. This gives them the opportunity to identify any potential issues and negotiate repairs with the seller before closing.

It's important to note that the law does not require sellers to make any repairs to their property before selling. However, if a buyer requests repairs based on the findings of a home inspection, the seller and buyer must agree on a resolution before the sale can proceed.

As a seller, it's in your best interest to be transparent and forthcoming about any known issues with your property. This can help avoid potential disputes and make the sale process easier for all parties involved.
