Read them. Absorb them. Emblazon them to memory, because one tiny mis-step can make your dream of moving on to your next home come crashing down like a sandcastle at high tide.

  • Thou shalt fill out property condition disclosure completely and disclose all known defects.
  • Thou shalt not stop paying the mortgage.
