When is a Well Disclosure required?

When property changes ownership, the seller of the property is required to disclose to the buyer, the presence and status of ALL (in-use, not-in-use, or properly sealed) water wells located on the property. If the well status has not changed since the last well disclosure was filed, a new disclosure is not required. If the property has never had a well located on it, a well disclosure is not required. Well disclosure requirements started November 1, 1990 - so property transactions prior to that date will not have previously filed well disclosures.
