California transfer disclosures terrify some sellers. They shouldn’t. The rules are fairly clear and, when in doubt, most professionals will tell you to disclose.
As a Seller, you are obligated by California law to disclose certain information about the property you’re offering for sale. This is true whether you are representing yourself in a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) situation or if you’ve listed your home with a real estate brokerage.
