Hello, Most of the time the listing agent, if they know, will disclose it and make the seller if they know, but as a Buyers Agent, I will always recommend you have a certified inspector, do the inspection. This is part of the inspections you are recommended to do and as long as you have the inspections within your inspection period, it allows you to walk away should you get a positive on the Chinese drywall.
A good Buyers agent will always keep your best interest in mind, advising you to do the things that will cover you and your funds. Call me anytime, 239.246.6639 or e-mail me, we can discuss the testing and the costs, which are minimal and of course well worth the peace of mind.
