Real Estate in District of Columbia

In 1998, the District of Columbia took a step towards protecting real estate buyers that other parts of the country have not yet taken. The District of Columbia has made full property disclosures required by law for all residential real estate transactions, and these disclosures cannot be waived by either side. To help sellers, the District of Columbia has drafted a form that can be used to satisfy the disclosure requirements and make the process a bit easier for both sides.

The disclosure statement must be filled out by the property owner. It cannot be prepared by the owner's agent, attorney or legally designated representative. One of the aspects of the District of Columbia disclosure that is not found in other parts of the country is the section that requires sellers to disclose whether or not the property has been designated a historical site in any way and may be subject to historical preservation laws. This information is critical because it will affect the way the property is handled throughout the sales process.
