A: There is no formal requirement under Arizona Law that a home inspection occurs. However, unless this is a cash transaction any bank is going to require one. Whether or not there has been a home inspection or not, you will be required to disclose any defects that you know about the property to the party purchasing the home. If you fail to disclose known defects you are liable for failing to disclose them. If a home inspection has been performed and it revealed issues you will be required to disclose those issues.
