The State of Washington protects real estate buyers by requiring sellers to provide a completed seller's disclosure as specified by Chapter 64.06, Revised Code of Washington (RCW) to the buyer after reaching mutual acceptance on an offer to purchase property. This multi-page form is completed and signed by the seller, and includes check box answers to many questions about the property.
As helpful as the disclosure form is intended to be, some of the questions can be confusing. When the seller may not know the answer to a specific question, the "Don't Know" box may be checked. If your review of the disclosure brings questions to mind, you should ask them immediately, because you only have three days to ask after receipt of the form to bring your questions forward.
If the disclosure form is incomplete or you present questions that need to be answered and request an amended form within the three day period, the review period begins again once you receive the amended form.
