My buyer is purchasing his first home. His option period has ended, and it’s eight days from closing. My client still hasn’t received the seller’s disclosure notice, and asked me if he can terminate the contract. Can he?

Yes. The One to Four Family Residential Contract (Resale) provides that if the notice is not received, the buyer can terminate at any time prior to closing and the earnest money will be refunded.
