Ah yes, Shameless self promoting your articles.

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

In some states you have to disclose info like this to potential renters or buyers so say they will loose is not true.If I sold you a pair of nike's fresh out the box but it had dog pop inside the shoe you should get a refund right well in this case they should refunded their deposit especially if they have proof.Untill you experience the paranormal it will always be a joke to many.

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!

This is interesting. I understand that realtors need to disclose crimes such as murders that occurred on the property, but this is the first time that I have heard that a realtor must disclose a haunting.

Let's say in an alternative universe I'm a estate agent (I'm assuming this is what a "realtor" is).

I don't believe in ghosts, so I'm not going to talk to a client that a house might have ghosts or demons of fairies or dragons or any weird crap like that.

A few months after not paying rent they say they can't live there because it's haunted and I should have told them there's a ghost in it and they want their bond back.

A judge would have to be on acid to side with the tenant in that court case.

Or do judges believe in ghosts in America?

Scottish jail prisoners sued the government cos having to pee in a bucket at night violated their 'human rights'.  They won, I believe.

You'll be hearing from my lawyers over that statement.

I highly doubt that a claim of "failure to disclose suggested prior paranormal activity" would even come close to being a viable claim in the courts. At least in the US.

Does anyone know of a US court case that accepted such claims?
