a. If Your Home Has Already Been Tested for Radon... If you are thinking of selling your home and you have already tested your home for radon, review the Radon Testing Checklist to make sure that the test was done correctly. If so, provide your test results to the buyer. No matter what kind of test was done, a potential buyer may ask for a new test, especially if: The Radon Testing Checklist items were not met; The last test is not recent, e.g., within two years; You have renovated or altered your home since you tested; or The buyer plans to use a lower level of the house than was tested, such as a basement that could be used regularly by the buyer. A buyer may also ask for a new test if your state or local government requires disclosure of radon information to buyers.
