YES you are RIGHT ON! Everyone has the right too know what they are getting in too. I think the Realtor will know this and either repair, disclose , and adjust the price to the right place so someone will take on the home and benefit from the situation. If you need help please call, email, or go too my site! I also would say an attorney is the best option for this question as well. A Realtor should always know to disclose, disclose, and disclose!!!
Understand that people can (and do) say that they didn't know about something, or that they forgot something.
This is why Inspections are so important and Contingencies are included to protect Buyers.
A responsible and truthful seller would disclose all home issues both before and after a home inspection. The listing agent should insure that major issues detected during a home inspection are disclosed.
If the seller changes agents, there is no assurance that the information will be disclosed.....and will be based on the seller's level of honesty. Should major issues be disclosed to the next buyer after an inspection.....absolutely!
