This will alert you to any issues that you may prefer to disclose at the outset to any prospective buyer and avoid any last minute surprises that could cause a buyer to withdraw. If you decide to remedy any problems before the sale, then you will have the assurance of holding a reliable long term treatment guarantee which can be assigned to new owner.
