While seller disclosures are well-intentioned - never trust them blindly to tell you the condition of the property. The seller A. may not be aware of the problem, or B. decide not to disclose the problem.
If it came to it, you'd also have to "prove" the seller knew of any issues and intentionally "hid" or failed to disclose them. You'd also have to have the time, energy, and money to pursue damages against them if applicable.
Again - the bottom line is - take the disclosures with a grain of salt. Get your own inspection done, and if there is anything of concern found, get a specialist in that area to provide a second opinion.
It's one of the biggest investments you'll ever make - do not trust a piece of paper that the seller is providing you blindly.
Hope that helps!
You, as a buyer, would be well advised to complete your own due diligence, trust what you see and verify everything else. This would be true in NY, FL or NV. Do your homework.
Best of success,
