Quote:
Home sellers in Pennsylvania are under no obligation to disclose if a house was the site of a murder, a suicide, or even satanic rituals, according to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

“The varieties of traumatizing events that could occur on a property are endless,” wrote Justice J. Michael Eakin in the court’s July 21 opinion. “Efforts to define those that would warrant mandatory disclosure would be a Sisyphean task.”

The ruling was in response to a suit filed by a Delaware County woman who had claimed the McMansion she bought in Thornton had an undisclosed “material defect,” because the seller had not told her that at a murder/suicide had been committed in the home.

The ruling dismissed the woman’s argument that the home’s history resulted in a reduction in its value.

The court said that such events could not be quantified, and went on to ask if a death by poisoning would be “a less significant defect” than a bloody stabbing or shooting.

“What if the killings were elsewhere, but the sadistic serial killer lived there? What if satanic rituals were performed in the house?” Justice Eakin wrote.

The court also noted the 2006 tragedy had been well-publicized, news that could have been discovered easily in print or online.

I guess I have to agree. I shouldn't be obligated to tell you anything. You're welcome to inspect all you like.

Caveat emptor.

Disclosure of that nature would be more of a courtesy, and one I would not expect a seller to disclose as it would be only to their detriment and irrationally. Humans are squishy, silly things who believe in hauntings, ghosts and superstition. Someone or something was undoubtedly killed in the spot you're sitting in over the course of the last million years, and probably in not-so-nice a way. We just don't need to hear about it and we're ok.

I just like how Philly keeps lowering the bar. It's so low right now that you are in danger of tripping over it.

Remember amityville, and the movie?

I understood the buyers who got haunted out of that house didn't know about the house murders going in.


Interesting thing, and the movie alludes to it, I understood when they later sold the place after abandoning it, they also didn't disclose the murders. :lol:

I personally would want to know who died in a house disclosed by the seller.

I've lived in a couple places where I later find out who/when, and sometime how someone had died in it. If anything it's interesting.


Some cultures they take this very seriously. In Japan it's required to track and disclose who died in a place. I understand it's a cultural/religious thing, where it's considered very bad to live in a house where someone had died, and it impacts the value too.
