CHAPTER 31 - HORIZONTAL PROPERTY ACT
SECTION 27-31-430. Disclosure of physical condition of building.
Whenever the lessee, sole owner, or co-owner of a building declares the undertaking of a conversion of rental units to condominium ownership through the recordation of a master deed or master lease, written disclosure shall be made within thirty days of the date of the recordation to all prospective purchasers, including tenants in possession, as to the physical condition of the building. The disclosure shall contain a written report prepared by an independent registered architect or engineer licensed to practice his profession in this State, describing the present condition of all general common elements. The report shall contain a good faith estimate of the remaining useful life to be expected for each item reported on, together with a list of any notices of uncured violations of building codes or other county or municipal regulations, together with the estimated cost of curing those violations. The good faith estimate of useful life shall not constitute a warranty and, as to an independent registered architect or engineer licensed to practice his profession in this State, shall not be deemed a representation of material fact or an inducement to purchase and shall not give rise to any cause of action at law or in equity against such architect or engineer. A failure to make the disclosure required by this section shall constitute a violation of the South Carolina Unfair Trade Practices Act.
