Real Estate in South Carolina

South Carolina is one of the few states in the country that has made real estate disclosure statements optional. As long as both parties agree in writing to forgo the disclosure statement, the South Carolina state laws says that the statement can be skipped completely. In the state of South Carolina, both direct real estate sales and leases that have the option to become sales contracts require the seller to either supply a disclosure statement, or get the buyer to agree that a disclosure is unnecessary. South Carolina is also unique in that it allows disclosure statements to be sent via email instead of requiring disclosures to be sent as hard copy mailings.

South Carolina also has relaxed laws when it comes to home inspections prior to putting a home up on the market. The law does not require home sellers to get any type of inspection done prior to listing their homes, and the law also states that sellers are not responsible for issues that cannot be clearly seen without investigation. This clearly puts the responsibility of having the property inspected on the buyer prior to signing the sales agreement, and it offers little to no recourse for buyers who decide to not have a property inspected prior to agreeing to its purchase.
