What is a Natural Hazard Disclosure Report?

The Natural Hazards Disclosure Act, under Sec. 1103 of the California Civil Code, states that real estate sellers and brokers are legally required to disclose if the property being sold lies within one or more state or locally mapped hazard areas. The law specifies that the six (6) required hazards be disclosed on a statutory form called the Natural Hazard Disclosure Statement (NHDS).

How long does it take to get a report?

Most reports will be delivered immediately via email. Otherwise, your report will be delivered within 15 minutes unless otherwise informed.

Are your reports insured?

Yes, we have an E&O Insurance Policy that covers all parties in the real estate transaction.

What if escrow cancels?

If escrow cancels just email us at order@capitalnhd.com or go on the site to cancel the report. Following cancellation, you will not be responsible for payment.

Do reports expire? How long are they valid for?

Reports do not expire, however the data on the report might change if the report date isn’t current due to government maps changing from time to time. Therefore, it is recommended to update the report after 6 months of order date for any work-in-progress transactions. If your transaction got delayed by 6 months or longer, please email us at order@capitalnhd.com, and we'll reissue the report and the invoice.

Can I use the same report for a different transaction?

No. Reports are valid only for the closed transaction for which they are issued.

How do I order a report with multiple APNs?

Please email APNs to order@capitalnhd.com for further information.
