Truth in Sale of Housing Program
The Saint Paul Truth-in-Sale of Housing Program is "disclosure only," with one exception.  The only item that must be remedied is the lack of a hard-wired smoke detector (HWSD - Item No. 39 on the Disclosure Report).  If there is no HWSD present in the single family home then the owner/seller will be required to have one installed.  (Installation must be done with an electrical permit, usually by a licensed contractor.)
