important to home buyers. You will find different website addresses for information on numerous topics to help educate you as a buyer.

law requiring that new occupants of dwellings with pools, and persons having a pool installed, receive this safety message about steps to
prevent drowning and the legal responsibilities of pool ownership. “Pool” means an in-ground or aboveground swimming pool or other

city and county governments to see if they have adopted different pool barrier requirements.

Property of which the Broker Agent(s) is unaware. These contaminants generally grow in places where there is or may have been
excessive moisture, such as where leakage may have occurred in roofs, pipes, walls, plant pots, or where there has been flooding; these
conditions may be identified with a typical home inspection. Broker recommends BUYER obtain a home inspection to better determine

suspect mold contamination is discovered, it is recommended that our buyers satisfy themselves as to property condition by having a

Exchange (“C.L.U.E.”) report regarding the premises ( available at www.choicetrust.com ).
