In California, sellers are required to disclose the presence of any known environmental
hazard. A statement that the homeowner is unaware of environmental hazards is not
a guarantee that the property is free of such hazards.
It is in the homeowner's and prospective homeowner's interest to know what hazards
are common, where they are found, and how they might be mitigated. This booklet
will provide homeowners and prospective homeowners with the information and additional
resources needed to make an informed decision about environmental hazards that may
be present on a property.
