Complete the "Contract To Close: Seller's Property Disclosure" checklist:

https://learntoberich.com/sellers-property-disclosure/

Since the "Seller's Property Disclosure" is often provided even before we write the offer, it is not uncommon that we use "Completed" for the date of this deadline. However, if we have not received the "Seller's Property Disclosure" prior to writing the offer, we often use "MEC + 3 Days" so that you can ideally get a copy of the "Seller's Property Disclosure" prior to your inspection.

This is especially important since there is not an objection for the "Seller's Property Disclosure"; you'd need to object based on your inspection if you found something at the property that you learned about via the "Seller's Property Disclosure".

IMPORTANT NOTE: This checklist is based on what I personally use with clients in Northern Colorado and is based on the Colorado Real Estate Commission approved Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate. Please rely on your local real estate agent for how it works in your local real estate market. This process will definitely vary in different States.
