The pair claim they had to flee their newly rented home after only one week due to paranormal activity.

USA Today said:

A New Jersey couple is suing the landlord of their three-bedroom ranch house in Toms River, claiming it's haunted, the Asbury Park Press reports. Josue Chinchilla, 37, and Michele Callan, 36, fled the house in March after staying only one week and want their $2,250 security deposit back.

Just think of all the ppl that took mortgages and found something wrong with the house, and it took them time to sell it.

Why should this couple get special treatment? There's been hundreds of cases of people buying homes and thinking their "haunted" only having to deal with it. It's life. I don't believe for a moment this home has anything going on but, even if something was, be an adult and deal with it. Set up a Camera. I promise all the activity will disappear. :tu:

So they assume its ghosts and not vermin like mice in the walls or bird in the roof. If it was happening all the time im sure they have plenty of video evidence.

I recon they should stay for a few months then leave suddenly & write a story of the horrific events that happened to them in the house & maybe make a film & a few dollars.Its not as if this has been done a million times before.LOL

Hey I saw something on that video. I'm sure there were a few others I missed but at 3:15 check out the top left quadrant. You can see two small lights appear from behind the column. Almost looks like two eyes peering out around the column then ducking back behind it. What other things did you guys spot on the video? I didn't see any text indicating where and when all the anomolies could be found.

Hey, I looked at the video in the spot where you said, and saw what you were talking about. I then used MAGIX Video Pro 4 to zoom and isolate this and it's a bug flying I'm afraid. It gives a strange effect because the video we're seeing on that link is actually sped up. If you slow it down and just view it full screen you will see the bug flying in a zig zag path then back behind the beam.

I haven't looked into this state or which it's applicable, but some places it is required that the real estate agent (whether renting or selling) is required to disclose if the location is haunted if it is known. This may not apply to this situation since the original owner of the home states he is unaware of any haunting or paranormal activity in the home. I just thought I'd throw that piece in since you were making a statement about other situations where people just "had to deal with hauntings". I only mention this cause I'm studying for my realtors license. This of course is a grey issue and there are lots of stipulations that are neither here nor there regarding this thread :) not to get off topic. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth!

Hmmm,  I wonder if the couple were hacked off cos the alleged ghost isnt tipping in for its share of rent plus bills  :unsure2:
Or could it be classed as sub letting ???

Good luck! If I was the landlord I'd keep the deposit too. I'd refund what's left when a new tennant moves in minus advertising. Gits.
