State law does not require disclosure of historical scars when home is sold

May 12, 2013

If someone operated a drug lab in a house, like a meth lab, you had better know that because the house will be contaminated with toxic chemicals which will be expensive to clear out.

What is next; disclosing if a dead bird was found in the front yard or if flies were killed in the house?

Talk to the neighbors before buying a house. There were two homes we looked at we turned down after talking to the neighbors. Also there is this wonderful thing called the internet. But I feel this information should be disclosed, Texas, comparing dead flies to a murder suicide is a bit out there.

Maybe (whatever) legislation could be developed, with reference to "Amityville" in it's title...so ALL people (of "good, moral character") can avoid the "obvious" repercussions??!!!

There's a good reason PA doesn't require disclosure of psychological defects - because there aren't any. They are in your mind. There are no spirits or ghosts inhabiting the house, you don't hear noises because someone died there (of natural causes? be serious please...) Why would spirits inhabit only brick & mortar locations? Why would "psychological defects" occur only in homes and not on physical locations too? Why only deaths? I'm sure beatings and abuse are traumatic too. If we considered all the deaths and trauma that have occured over the course of history in the area over which we stand right now, it's a wonder that we can withstand the "psychological defects" of our location. And where would we draw the line? Someone died of natural causes was mentioned... how about spousal or child abuse? Animal abuse? And just, how, does this stay in the house and transfer to the next owner? Evidence please.
