There is no required information about asbestos for sellers to provide to buyers.
The Vermont Lead Poisoning Prevention Law requires sellers to provide lead disclosure information and educational materials approved by the Health Department during real estate transactions for all pre-1978 housing, whether owner-occupied or rental. See the summary of seller's obligations in all types of real estate transactions
Seller Responsibilities: Pre-1978 Residential Rental Properties
These educational materials must be given to the buyer when selling a residential rental property:
The following must be verified:
Inspection, Repair and Cleaning (IRC) Practices have been completed.
A current IRC Practices Compliance Statement has been filed with the Health Department.
The following must be disclosed:
Any information or documentation regarding the presence of lead paint, such as any testing that has been performed.
If the property is currently subject to an assurance of discontinuance, administrative order or court order.
The Vermont Lead Law Disclosure and IRC Practices Verification Form is used before the execution of a purchase and sale agreement. Depending upon the circumstances of the sale, it may also be needed at the time of sale.
A separate federally required lead law disclosure form may be required.
Seller Responsibilities: Pre-1978 Owner-Occupied Single Family Homes (non-rental)
These educational materials must be given to the buyer when selling an owner-occupied single-family home (non-rental):
Disclose any information or documentation regarding the presence of lead paint, such as any testing that has been performed.
The Vermont Lead Law Disclosure (Single Family Home) Form will rarely be needed. It is only for use when a single-family home is subject to an assurance of discontinuance, administrative order or court order and the terms of which are not completed.
Seller Responsibilities: Certified Lead-Free Pre-1978 Residential Structure
The Vermont Lead Law Disclosure (Lead-free Property) Form will be used infrequently. It is for use when residential housing has been certified lead-free by a Vermont-licensed Lead Inspector or Risk Assessor, who has conducted an inspection using an XRF machine, the results have been sent to the Health Department, and the Department has approved an exemption from IRC Practices.
