»Remind your sellers that any known defects to the property must be disclosed.
Nondisclosure is the largest category of claims filed against agents and brokers — up to two-thirds of the lawsuits filed. Inform your sellers that they must disclose any known defects, even if they have never lived in the property. Make sure all disclosures are in writing and acknowledged by both parties.
