Q: What happens if I'm selling my house and a bomb shelter is found buried on the property?
This house is in town on a small lot in an older neighborhood
What exactly are you concerned about?
Is the shelter on YOUR property?
Unless it is a ‘hazard’, nothing will ‘happen’. It is as if you ‘discovered’ an additional room.
If it encroaches on a neighbor property there might be an issue.
If you have questions, you should consult with a local licensed attorney to review the FULL situation.
A: It depends on when the bomb shelter was discovered. If you found while you are in the process of selling your home, then you should disclose it. If you were unaware of its existence on your property until after the sale, then generally there should be no disclosure issue. See more at: www.provenresource.com
