Anne Lok I think this should be disclosed - it is not in the best interest of the buyer and future value may be affected by this.

Disclose, disclose, disclose.  

Some people won't care at all, others will freak out and everything in between.  Present the information in a neutral way and let your clients decide if and how their home search will be affected.

Scarey thought I think it should be disclosed. The San Onofre plant is 15 miles from where I live -they had a leak in 2012 and were secretive about how much :(

I am neutral on this subject. Personally, I believe that most people already know this information in a specific area, as it's hard to hide. I could actually argue the case both ways. I would disclose, but I don't know that we have to make another mandatory disclosure.

In California, we are disclosure maniacs.  I always think would an attorney find this a reason to sue? I would definitely disclose.  A

It seems safer to disclose.  But, I will say that that the buyer's agent should know this stuff too.  I would guess homes in this area are much lower priced.

Whether required disclosure or not. I'm guessing a realtor worth their weight would drive their clients past the nuke plant when looking for a home and casually mention, "oh there's where we get our electricity from"... now let's go find you a home. If the clients freak out, then you probably should be helping them look somewhere else.

You want to disclose anything that is potentially important to a new buyer.  I suspect most looking would be aware of a nuclear plant nearbye but disclosure is always best for everyone concerned.  Mark

Ann, a nearby nuclear power plant is a pretty hard thing to miss!  I think that disclosures are more important for issues that the sellers know about but that might be hidden.
