Per page 4 of the Texas Association of Realtors Seller’s Disclosure Notice, Spring Texas home sellers are required to disclose if within the last 4 years they received any written inspections on their home.
Spring Texas home sellers do not have to disclose if prior inspections were performed on the home. They only have to disclose inspections that occurred within the last 4 years, were written, and received. A previous interested buyer could have performed inspections on the house. But unless the previous buyers gave a copy of the inspection report to the seller, the seller does not have anything to disclose.
If the sellers do have a written inspection report, you should carefully review it but you should not rely upon it. The condition of the property could have further deteriorated from the date of the inspection or improved if the sellers made repairs. Plus the inspection was provided for someone else. What if the inspector missed a material default of the property? You did not hire the inspector so how could you hold the inspector responsible for not identifying the default?

I have had the pleasure of partnering with Jill Wente on several real estate transactions. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the real estate industry are top notch! She is honest, straight forward, organized, and completely in tune with each of her transactions. She asks questions and truly listens to the information given to her and applies it in her future transactions. She is wonderful to work with and proves in each transaction that her top priority is that her clients are given the best customer service and are comfortable with each step of the process. She works proactively rather than reactively, and prepares herself for any questions her clients may have during the process, and does so before the question arises. Her clients are lucky to have her on their side! I look forward to any and all opportunities I have to partner with Jill in the future. read less
