Did someone die in my house?

Answer

According to real estate agent Brendan Desimone of Zillow.com, the best way for prospective home buyers to find out if a past resident has died in the home is to inquire with the seller's agent or consult with neighboring homeowners. The laws on disclosing previous deaths vary by state.

In addition to inquiring with the seller's agent and neighbors, there are also online sites, such as DiedInHouse.com, that create reports for homeowners and prospective home buyers by searching multiple public death records for a fee. DiedInHouse.com explains that there are only three states in the United States that require death disclosure within one to three years of the purchase date. Fifteen states require disclosure only when the purchaser inquires with the seller.
