Whilst the Seller is not legally obligated to disclose obvious or known defects (patent), the Seller does have a duty to disclose all defects which are not obvious (latent) which he/she is aware of. Should the Seller purposefully hide or cause any defect to be hidden, the Seller will not enjoy the protection under the voetstoots clause.
