Provides that the buyer and seller, and any brokers involved, must sign a statement acknowledging that the buyer was notified of his or her rights under the Act and received the information required by the Act. Provides that a seller is not required to have the property tested for radon, but must furnish the buyer with a copy of any radon tests conducted on the property. Provides that the Act does not apply to transfers: pursuant to court order; from a mortgagor to a mortgagee in lieu of foreclosure; by a fiduciary; from a co-owner to another co-owner; through testate or intestate succession; to a spouse or a relative in the lineal line of consanguinity; that are part of a seller's relocation; or, to or from a governmental entity.
