For a three-minute summary of the legal obligations regarding radon disclosure, members can watch the “Legal Minutes – Radon Disclosure Requirements” video featuring Illinois REALTORS® Director of Legal Services Betsy Urbance.
According to the Illinois Radon Awareness Act, most homeowners who want to sell their property will need to complete a radon disclosure form and share it with prospective buyers, says Urbance. Owners will disclose and provide the most current records they may have related to radon test results or mitigation actions.
She also discusses some common exceptions to the radon disclosure form requirement.
