The full disclosure is awesome.  I'd see if I liked the neighborhood, make sure no snot nose kids were too loud on the cul de sac and claim ghosties if I wasn't happen.  LOL

Agreed!  Next time I need to sell something, I'm saying it's haunted.  I'll get 10x as much for it.

I believe these laws are really geared towards homes that have a "reputation" rather than an actual haunting. It's rather hard to prove in any court of law that there is such a thing as "haunted".

Yeah, you would just need to get a couple of scientists collect actual evidence of the haunting. It would never happen. It would more then likely get thrown out of court. Out of interest does anyone know if there have been any actual court cases with regards to ghosts?

They will lose, they signed an agreement to research on their own for previous deaths. So realitor and landlore do tell the clients that they can not give any information by legal obligation about the deaths on that property or in the house.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

Maybe they're mad because they found out that they have to pay for the ghosts to.

I'd love to see some lawyer trying to prove the place is haunted
Wonder if they could get a medium in as a witness

Just for some info on this.... There is apparently a case on the books about a haunted house- Strambovsky vs. Ackley. Not quite the same kind of deal as in this thread.. The owner of the house published stories about the house being haunted, and didn't disclose that to a prospective buyer- once the buyer found out about the haunted rep, he wanted to back out of the purchase of the house- eventually he was able to back out of the deal and the house was sold to someone else.

As for this particular case... The couple has already had their day in Peoples Court- yes, the TV show. The judge found against them- the landlord gets to keep the deposit, and the couple owe three months rent now because they didn't actually move all the way out of the house apparently..

Here's an article about it: http://www.app.com/a...People-s-Court-

Ghosts use too much water.
