95% of disputes/claims stem from disclosure issues.
We’ve helped home sellers resolved 94% of their disputes/claims before they’ve escalated to mediation/lawsuit. So, brokers & agents cannot be drawn into the claims that have been resolved.
It helps prove that you did not fill out the disclosure so you cannot be held liable for mistakes or omission on it.
We have an interactive disclosure platform. It is the same form you use. It works a lot like Turbo Tax. It provides examples, tips, definitions, guidance, expandable fields and requires the disclosure is fully complete & signed. More accurate and complete disclosures reduce disputes as disclosure mistakes are the main cause of disputes.

Home Sales Legal Protection takes effect the day the sales transaction closes. It covers the period purchased from this date.
