Disclosure rules may vary by state, and only your local agents can give you the best answer. Regardless of what obligations the builder may have, you have an obligation to do your own research too. Relying on their knowledge can be dangerous. They could be an honest company that doesn't know or a company that prefers not to know.
Hopefully you have your own agent to advise you of the issues that you should be concerned with. I also advise that you have a professional inspector go through the house before you close. Yes, the builders have a warranty and the county checks off the permits, but not everything is always caught in time. If an issue is missed and not discovered until after the builders warranty expires, you could be out of luck.
