In addition we also provide an example disclosure letter in this pack. We have provided a format as an indication of how a disclosure letter works and a style you could use. The detailed wording is up to you but can be added easily.
A word about warranties:
We have also included warranties. Warranties protect the interest of the buyer, who does not have the information available to the seller. It is fair and reasonable for a buyer to demand warranties and for a seller to give them. However, it is quite easy for a buyer to use warranties to "improve" his original deal. So, if you are a seller, do not give a warranty if you do not know whether it is true, but do be prepared to "go and find out" information that could be within your knowledge.
The 71 individual warranties are in sections relating to:
- No damaging effect of this agreement
