Property Transactions Questions and Answers

Must a seller correct the defects in the property?

No.  The seller does not generally have the obligation to correct defects, known or discovered, unless there is a federal, state or local law requiring correction (e.g. septic systems pursuant to some local ordinances), or unless the seller has agreed to do so in the contract.  Otherwise, any correction of the defects is a matter of negotiation as part of the purchase agreement.
