The first two weeks of escrow are going to seem never ending with the amount of disclosures you have to sign and the amount of inspections the buyer will complete. The two most important disclosures in a standard sale are the transfer disclosure statement, and seller questionnaire. These documents are pretty self-explanatory. One confirms everything that will be transferred with the property, and the other asks a bunch of question pertaining to the property. Some of these questions concern recent home improvements, past or current leaks, noise, insurance claims…etc. Your broker will assist you in completing all the disclosure needed in order to obey the law.
The different types of inspections ordered by the buyer will depend on the home itself. Buyers purchasing an older property will likely have the roof inspected along with the main plumbing drain line. Properties that sit on large lots like you see in Rancho Santa Fe, will most likely have the lot surveyed to confirm the current property line is accurate.
