I'm selling a single-family investment property that I haven't seen in years. I have no knowledge of the property’s condition. Do I have to fill out a seller's disclosure?
Yes. The Texas Property Code requires a seller of residential real property comprising not more than one dwelling unit to provide a seller’s disclosure notice to the buyer. Although the Property Code does provide certain exceptions to this requirement, a seller never seeing or living in the property is not one of them. After all, knowledge of the property can come from sources other than a visual examination, such as complaints from tenants or reports from property managers. If a seller is unaware of any particular condition of the property, the seller can indicate that on the notice.
Failing to provide a completed seller’s disclosure notice to a buyer may entitle the buyer to certain remedies, like terminating the contract.

"I found out about The Real Estate MarketPlace from Dave Ramsey. I picked you guys because I didn't have to enter into a contract with you. You went above and beyond to satisfy me. You were quick to return phone calls and always showed up on time for appointments. You also gave your opinions and advice, but didn't pressure us to follow the advice. I always though Realtors were sleazy, crooked, money grabbers, but TREMP changed my opinion! I would never use a different Realtor!"
