When is a Well Disclosure required?
When property changes ownership, the seller of the property is required to disclose to the buyer, the presence and status of ALL (in-use, not-in-use, or properly sealed) water wells located on the property. If the well status has not changed since the last well disclosure was filed, a new disclosure is not required. If the property has never had a well located on it, a well disclosure is not required.

Well disclosure requirements started in 1991 so property transactions prior to that will not have previously filed well disclosures.
