Real Estate in Idaho

In Idaho, there are laws in place set up to protect the buyer during a real estate transaction. It is state law in Idaho that a buyer must reveal and defects in the property that could be a detriment to the health and welfare of the buyer within 10 days of the buyer submitting an offer. The buyer has the legal right to opt out of a deal if they feel that the property was not as advertised when they originally submitted their offer. The forms used for this disclosure are very specific, and they follow the guidelines set forth in Idaho real estate statute 55-2508.

While this sounds like a great way to protect buyers, the law in Idaho actually falls short of forcing sellers to release specific details. The sellers are required to inform the buyer of any issues that the seller knows of, but the seller is not obligated to hire an engineer or inspector to give comprehensive documentation of the issues. There can also be problems with this process when it comes to proving what a seller did and did not know at the time the offer was submitted. While this law attempts to protect buyers, it does have several ambiguous elements that can leave it open for abuse by sellers.
