1. The Agency Disclosure Form (ADF) This explains how the agent you choose can work as your agent, and in your interest, rather than exclusively as the agent of the seller, as was common in the past. If you are seeking to purchase a home, the agent is required to disclose this to you, and will ask you to sign it. Your signature simply acknowledges that you've received the form and understand the choices it describes.
  2. Lead Disclosure Form If you are purchasing a home built before 1978, it may have lead paint, and the agent is required to give you a form filled out by the seller with any information the seller has about lead paint in the home. You should also receive a booklet describing the possible dangers of lead paint and what can be done about it.
  3. Seller's Property Condition Disclosure New in 2002, this is a 48 question form the seller is required to fill out and give to buyers disclosing information they may know about the property and any defects or problems listed on the form.
