The Seller’s Known Inconsistency
- Buying an apartment in Israel
- The Sales Contract
When the seller knows about defects or inconsistencies, as they are, there is no reason to require the buyer to find out such details, load him with a burden and force him on a tedious journey in the municipal or government bureaucracy.
Assuming that a seller closes a balcony without a building permit, he must explicitly state this even if the closure is conspicuous, and even if, in the seller’s opinion, a reasonable buyer can discover a construction deviation on his own.
