The current seller's residential real estate form is nine pages long. That probably seems like a lot of pages, but if your home was built after 1978 or does not have city water and sewer, there are even more.
If a home was constructed prior to 1978, the seller must fill out a two page federal disclosure regarding lead based paint. If a home has a septic system, the seller needs to complete a three page disclosure for subsurface sewage treatment systems. And if a home has ever had a well for water, there is a specific three page disclosure for wells. This must be completed whether the well has been sealed or is currently in use. And a handy-dandy location map is required for well/septic systems too.There is an additional disclosure form if a home has ever been used for the production of methamphetamine, but thankfully, most home sellers do not have to complete that one.
- Use Internet Explorer as your browser. The site doesn’t work well with newer browsers like Firefox and Google Chrome. There isn’t a mobile app for this yet either.
- Disable pop-up blockers. The map and information will show in a pop-up window and it looks like the site isn’t working if you have pop-up windows blocked.
- The information posted will not always show the current owner but the name of the owner or builder that filed the original paperwork.
- Sometimes the well will not always be listed by street address but still can be found by looking at the plat map of the street.
