Ours have to be submitted to the MLS, or are supposed to be when the listing goes live. However, there are exceptions made in several instances. However, when you make an offer, you do acknowledge as a prospective buyer if you have or have not seen it.

When I am the listing agent, seller disclosures and other reports are completed prior to property hitting the market and can be reviewed prior to offer submission.

They are not mandatory in Florida by Statute... but most Brokers, including me, require a disclosure as a condition of listing the property.  I use the State form (Florida Association of Realtors).  I put it in the "Associated Documents" section of the MLS listing.

Hello Jeff Dowler CRS 

I post the Seller's Disclosure when the listing goes Active, along with other available pertinent information (survey, HOA, etc...) for agents to have immediately.  Our MLS provides a supplements section to upload pdf files.

Good morning Jeff. They certainly should be provided before an offer is made or the offer is made subject to review of them.

Typical is for them to be uploaded on the MLS. But not always.  It's not required in my state to have one so all agents don't get them.  But the minute I know I have a client with serious interest if one isn't uploaded I ask for it. I have gotten it after an offer, but that's rare.

In Wisconsin we upload our disclosures - RECR, Addendum S, SSL, Survey, etc. at the same time as we input the Listing.  That way, when we print out the Listing Sheet we also have the disclosures with us when showing the home and it helps when the buyer has questions about the property condition.  Also saves us agents time from having to stop what we are doing to send over the disclosures each and every time someone is going to be writing an offer.  Works for us.  Just wish all the agents would take advantage of this capability.

As listing agent, I only provide a seller disclosure to the buyer and their agent if specifically asked for one, and usually at the time of an offer.  If they fail to ask for one, they don't get to see one, unless of course I am also representing the buyers, in which case I am obligated to provide it.

In Cali: by law, within 3 days of accepting the offer unless otherwise negotiated.

When completed: Usually within a day of having the offer accepted.  Why waste the time if the house doesn't sell.  Why do disclosures when something can change between the listing date and the offer acceptance date?

I hand my disclosure to my seller before I list the home. This is the one document I cannot have electronic signatures on, so they have to fill it out manually and give it to me on the day I list the property in MLS. Many of my fellow realtors and myself upload the sellers disclosure ASAP in MLS. Its supposed to be uploaded within 24 hours here. When I work with a buyer who shows great interest in a property I print the disclosure out and hand it to them to review while making an offer. If there is not one available on line, we give the seller a deadline to provide it.

In Greenville SC, generally,  I include the disclosure in the attached docs on the listing. The buyer then signs the disclosure and includes it with the offer, earnest money and pre approval/proof of funds.

I only provide them when the offer is made if we have an uh oh, like a recent death or something else I think is alarming.  Additionally if I feel an inspection is overly burdensome it's best to be upfront versus open an escrow with a high aptitude to fail.

In Missouri we ask the seller to complete a disclosure at the time of listing and then it is shared with the buyer prior to writing the offer.  It is very helpful during the showing process, as it gives answers to many of the questions buyers often have at the time of viewing.
