The SLO County Airport Land Use Commission is preparing a disclosure that home Buyers must sign for the planned Tumbling Waters project on the corner of Orcutt and Broad St. that informs them of the potential airport noise.

Most real estate agents will disclose if you are buying a home near the airport but not really say what noise it can bring. There was a letter to the editor to the Trib a few months back from a resident of the San Luis Country Club complaining about the helicopter noise. Replies back to that letter had the theme “You knew you were buying close to an airport, so what did you expect? If you don’t like it, move to a place not near an airport”.

It is a good idea for potential home buyers to have disclosures on EVERYTHING known that can affect the property. There shouldn’t be any surprises!
