Q: Is a seller required to disclose the presence of pets in the home?

Many people have allergies to pet dander and/or pet fur. Dander and fur can remain present well after the pet has no longer been on the premises. The presence of these allergens would have an adverse affect on a buyer’s use and enjoyment of the property, and therefore, is considered a material fact and needs to be disclosed.

The Minnesota Association of REALTORS® is the largest professional trade association in the state with more than 17,000 members who are active in all aspects of the real estate industry.
