Alabama’s Buyer Beware Law for Home Buyers

Collier Swecker video blogs about Alabama’s Caveat Emptor Law (aka “Buyer Beware”) and important issues faced by home buyers and sellers in the State of Alabama. Alabama is one of the few Caveat Emptor states in the United States and the burden is generally on home buyers to inspect and find any problems in a home prior to purchasing the home and a home seller is under no obligation to affirmatively disclose any defect or problem with a home unless the defect is “latent”. A latent defect is a problem or serious issue affecting health and safety of a home that could not have been discovered by a reasonably thorough inspection prior to a sale.
