State law in North Carolina (North Carolina General Statutes Section 47E-4) requires that sellers provide buyers a disclosure form, which includes details on the property, including:

  • defects in the plumbing, electrical, and other house systems

  • the property’s water supply source and sewage disposal system

  • conditions such as contaminated soil or asbestos

  • homeowners’ association fees and services provided, such as trash removal, and

  • other specified details of the property, such as shared driveways or easements.

Disclosures must be on a Residential Property and Owners' Association Disclosure Statement form established by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission. Certain types of sales (such as newly built, never inhabited, homes) are exempt from state disclosure rules.

In addition, if your house was built before 1978, you must comply with federal Title X disclosures regarding lead-based paint and hazards. See the lead disclosure section of the EPA’s website, for details.
