Generally, Sellers are required to provide a residential property disclosure in NC and SC. There are some exemptions in the state statutes. However, one of the options on the NC disclosure is "no representation", so buyers should get a home inspection from a licensed home inspector. Mold is not the main result associated with bad sheetrock from China. Inspectapedia has some interesting information that may help you understand various home related issues.

Words, 'Required' is a strong word left to be determined be a jury once the buyer decides that they wish that you had told them about the presence of the mold that is making their children sick. Especially since you just have posted a public digital admission that you already know about the mold.

Our company attorney always says that a seller will always be better off to disclose any material fact that is known about a property prior to closing.

I am the buyer, not the seller. I want to make sure we don't get stuck with that mess.
