Is there any planned special Assessments or capital improvements moving forward.

Systems and fixtures. Sellers simply verify whether the electrical, plumbing, heating, and cooling systems — as well as certain appliances — are in good working order. If any components were the subject of a recall or class-action suit, that also needs to be disclosed.
