Real Estate in Rhode Island

The state of Rhode Island is a little state with some very unique real estate laws. In Rhode Island, it is required by state law that the seller of a property provides a disclosure form on the condition of the property in writing prior to the buyer and seller signing a sales agreement. In most other states, the disclosure comes after the sales agreement has been signed. Rhode Island state law also requires that the seller of a property send that condition disclosure information to every real estate agent the buyer has worked with in the course of the buyer's search for a new home. In some cases, that can be a very extensive list.

Rhode Island lawmakers believe in giving real estate sellers all of the information they would need to purchase a property with confidence, and that has lead to one of the most comprehensive disclosure processes in the country. Rhode Island sellers report on no less than 91 different elements of their home in the state's disclosure report, and the report must be filled in completely to be valid. Thankfully, the laws do allow sellers some leeway when it comes to parts of the house they are unfamiliar with and do not require sellers to invest in a professional inspection by a certified inspector.
