Potential clients wanted to get out of a purchase contract because there was a 5G cell transmitter on a nearby telephone pole. They had waived their contingencies but insisted that Seller failed to disclose the transmitter. The question is: What do you need to disclose? Anything that materially effects the value of the property. But is there any reason to believe that the Seller knew something about 5G cell transmitters in the neighborhood that would require them to be disclosed? Or even that the Seller knew there was a 5G cell transmitter on the pole? You could argue that it is obvious that there is a transmitter on the pole. But if it is obvious to the naked eye then it was not concealed from the Buyer. There are a lot of complications when alleging a failure to disclose.
