That being said, some inspectors are more protective of litigation by deferring to licensed professionals on most matters and being overly cautious than others. In answer to your question, you must disclose the presence of an inspection report on the disclosure, but you are only required to disclose defects or problems. If you have fixed these as you stated, then they would not be disclosable as a current problem - because they are fixed and not problems. And you could always provide a copy of the most recent inspection to show the problems left after you fixed the original issues.
Can pay your asking price (or very close to it), close in 30 days or less. I'm always looking for a
good deal on a house.

I had a great seller... he took the report, called a contractor, handed them the report, and said "Fix everything on this report"
He too had a few items on the list that were a bit on the exaggerated side, so he had the contractor draw up a list of all the repairs made, and reasons why other items did not need to be repaired... and we posted that letter with the receipts and we marketed the home like this:
"Seller got home inspection back and fixed everything on the inspection! Documents available for buyer's review... You won't have to worry about this home.. it's in great shape now!"
We got a full price offer less than a week later, and the buyer's were happy that they didn't have to order an inspection!
I say be positive, and your results will be positive as well. :)
If you have representation, use all the knowledge and experience of you Realtor.

earlier defects have been repaired and are not non existent, then you are ok....
And as many said below, it is a good idea to disclose that there WAS a problem that has been
repaired and provide the bill and work done with it.....
If you are working with an experienced Realtor, they will advise you on what you MUST disclose by
law, and what you do NOT have to disclose anymore after repairs have been successfully executed,
and those you can disclose with proof of repairs......
And yes read the advice of all the other colleagues.
Good Luck to you

I am sure your home is sellable. There are many items that come up on reports that home owners are not aware of and a good realtor will explain this to their client. As long as you have fixed the items you should be in good shape!
Best Wishes to you!
The Disclosures require you to disclose any material fact which will impact the Value of the Property.
If a discovered problem was repaired, such as repairing a leak in the roof, or replacing a leaking faucet, it not longer needs to be disclosed.
Here, there are certain things that are outside the score of this definition:
If there was standing water in a basement or next to the foundation; it will ask if you had standing water.
Structural modifications or repairs made without Permits.
Good luck and may God bless
