Florida lawmakers could consider proposals that would require people selling real estate to provide information to buyers about whether the property has sustained damage from flooding.
Sen. Jennifer Bradley, R-Fleming Island, filed a bill (SB 484) on Thursday that would set a series of disclosure requirements. Rep. Susan Valdes, D-Tampa, filed a similar measure (HB 325) last month.
Under Bradley’s bill, sellers would be required to disclose information such as whether the property has sustained flood damage; whether the property is located in a designated flood-hazard zone; whether sellers have received federal assistance for flood damage; and whether flood-damage insurance claims have been filed.
