Marple It would just create another bureaucratic requirement for residents at the expense of homeowners and would not accomplish anything. Prospective buyers can already higher a home inspector to evaluate a home before they purchase. the City Council should BUTT OUT! Reply Reply 1 Kathleen Cleavenger Another hidden tax! Reply Reply 0 Sussie Due That should be up to the buyer to do that NOT the seller. Reply Reply 0 Paul Bianchina Another perfect example of the hypocrisy of the current city council, who seems determined to ruin Bend. They whine and cry about affordable housing, then add more red tape to make houses more expensive. It's up to a buyer to understand the home they're buying, not the government!! Reply Reply 0 Native Oregonian It only adds to the cost of buying an already over priced home. If buyers want to know what an energy score is, they can pay for an energy survey on their own when buying the house, at their own expense. This council needs to start listening to what their constituents want, and stop wasting time. Reply Reply 0 Neil Mackey Just another example of government sticking their nose into private citizens' personal affairs! If a potential buyer and seller want to work that issue out as part of a (potential) sale, that should be THEIR choice, not a mandate by the City of Bend....
