Calif. Civil Code §1710.2
Amended by A.B. 73
Effective date: September 24, 2016
Neither a property owner nor a California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE) broker or agent representing an owner or buyer/tenant have a duty to voluntarily disclose a prior occupant’s HIV-positive status or AIDs-related death.
Editor’s note — The vague language of the law which existed prior to this clarification caused many CalBRE licensees to believe disclosure of prior occupant’s HIV-positive status or death from an AIDS-related illness was required. This new law merely clarifies existing law.
