Inside this issue
  Be aware of SRPD changes, use most updated version of key document  

The passage of AB 398 this last legislative session meant a few minor changes to the Seller's Real Property Disclosure Form (SRPD).  The most important update comes on the first page and states, "A seller's agent shall not complete a disclosure form regarding the residential property on behalf of the seller." (NRS 113.130(2)), which underscores agents must not fill out the SRPD!  In addition, there are the conforming changes to the new statutory language on page 4 of the SRPD under NRS 113.130. You can find a link to the new SRPD here. 

IMPORTANT!!!  If the seller needs help physically completing the form, for example due to medical/health limitations, the agent should NOT embark on writing and/or dictation typing out information for the disclosure form on behalf of the seller.  Basically, agents should not be touching this form at all!  The agent should point the seller in the direction of having their attorney complete the form, or a person with legal authority to do so (valid power of attorney -- see video in this eNews for what's an acceptable Power of Attorney.
