Tuesday, 30th May 2023

When it comes to buying or selling a property, transparency is crucial. Potential buyers deserve to have all relevant information about a property before making a decision. However, in the state of Arizona, there are specific laws regarding the disclosure of certain details, such as deaths and felonies, that may have occurred on a property. In this blog, we will explore Arizona’s real estate law, which does not mandate the disclosure of deaths and felonies on the property. The Carol Royse Team understands and specializes in properly disclosing information for sellers while adhering to legal requirements.

Arizona’s Real Estate Law and Non-Disclosure

Unlike some states, Arizona does not legally require home sellers to disclose deaths or felonies that have occurred on a property. The state follows the principle of caveat emptor, meaning “buyer beware.” This principle places the responsibility on buyers to investigate and ask questions about a property’s history, rather than relying on sellers to disclose every detail.

The Lack of Discrimination Against Home Sellers

The absence of a legal obligation to disclose deaths and felonies on a property in Arizona is not a means to discriminate against home sellers or hide vital information. Instead, it allows homeowners to sell their properties without fear of potential stigma associated with certain events that have occurred in the past. It also eliminates any subjective interpretation of what should be disclosed, as opinions on what events are considered significant may vary.
