A disclosure statement must be provided in connection with the sale , exchange , option , and sale under a lease with option to purchase . A disclosure statement is not required for some transactions , including the first sale of a dwelling which has never been inhabited .

One of the questions on the disclosure , which was added in 2010 , requires the disclosure of any noise , odor , smoke , etc . from commercial , industrial or military sources which affects the property .
