A seller does not have to provide the addendum in the following situations:
- Property constructed after January 1, 1978
- Property sold at foreclosure
- A dwelling where the living area is not separated from the sleeping area (such as efficiency apartments, dormitory housing, or individual rooms)
- Housing for elderly or disabled residents where no child under six years old is expected to reside.
