Wednesday’s story, “Property I.D. sues to get HUD off it’s back,” incorrectly stated that California and some other states require natural hazard disclosure reports. To clarify, California requires that sellers provide natural hazard disclosures for properties located in areas known to be prone to flooding, fire, earthquake or landslides. The disclosures must be made on standardized forms, which can be prepared by the seller, the seller’s agent, or a third-party consultant.
