Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, with certain exceptions, owners selling residential real
property or vacant land must give prospective buyers a form, known as a real estate
condition report for residential real property and as the vacant land disclosure report
for vacant land, on which the owner discloses certain conditions of, and other
information about, the real property of which the owner is aware. This bill requires
an owner to disclose on the applicable report whether the owner has notice or
knowledge of a contract, or an option to contract, that allows a person to mine frac
sand on a neighboring property.
