SPDS Tucson Home Seller

SPDS And The Tucson Home Inspection Process

Required From A Tucson Home Seller

spds sellers property disclosure statementSeller’s Property Disclosure Statement OR “SPDS”  This important document provides information on the condition of the seller’s home.

The SPDS identify what the seller knows about the property. The Arizona Department of Real Estate requires the SPDS for every home sale.

A critical exception to this rule is REO homes.

Sellers must disclose all known material facts about the property in the Seller Property Disclosure Statement. This is one time when TMI (Too Much Information) doesn’t apply. The more information on the SPDS the better.

Disclosure helps to protect the Seller from a future claim by the Buyer. The buyer must receive the SPDS within 5 days of the accepted contract.

With the accepted offer, the Buyer will start their “due diligence” process. The Buyer has 10 days in which to complete a Tucson Home inspection.

A home inspector will review the SPDS before beginning their inspection. At the end of the inspection, a Home Inspection Report describes the condition of home. From the “inspector’s” point of view.

A Home Inspection Covers

A Tucson Home Inspection will take 2 to 3 hours based on the size of the home. The report covers the roof, heating and A/C systems, electrical and other aspects of the home.

After the inspection, the buyer of the home gets a Home Inspection Report. The Buyer uses the report to decide whether of not the home’s condition is acceptable to them.

It documents what the Buyer is requesting the Seller to repair before they “buy” the home.

The Buyer’s agent will prepare a “Buyer Inspection Notice and Sellers Response” – BINSR. The BINSR identifies the items the Buyer want the Seller to repair. Repairs may be a condition of completing the process of purchasing your home.

The Seller now has THREE (3) options

1 – Agree to make all requested repairs and proceed with the sale.

2 – Agree to make some, but not all, of the requested repairs.

3 – Refuse to make any repairs.

If you elect Option #1, you are essentially done.

You make the repairs agreed to before Close of Escrow and provide the Buyers receipts for the completed work.

If you should elect either Option #2 or #3 –

The Buyer now has TWO (2) options

1 – Cancel the contract and have their earnest money returned.

2 – Accept your response and proceed with the purchase. While this process sounds complicated it is actually fairly straight forward.  The purchase contract sets forth the time-lines (they can be modified) and clearly sets the options for both the Seller and Buyer.

We are, of course, there to explain and review the options available at each set in the process. We will prepare a “Repair Addendum” listing the requested repairs.

When signed, we will forward it to the Seller’s agent.

Other Inspections To Consider

Other inspections that are almost always done by a Buyer include; Tucson Termite Inspection and Tucson Roof Inspection also provide valuable information to the Buyer’s purchase decision.

Some Buyers want to have Tucson Radon Inspection or Tucson Mold Inspection. If suggested by the Tucson Home Inspection a Tucson Structural Inspection or Tucson Pool Inspection may be required.

Should the property have a septic system a Tucson Septic Inspection will be required.
