Delaware County, Pennsylvania Real Estate Blog: Does Your Seller Need to Disclose Paranormal Activity In the Home?

Does Your Seller Need to Disclose Paranormal Activity In the Home?

A post just in time for this Halloween Season....

There are some homes that seem to have activity that just cannot be explained any other way.  If you own such a house and are planning on selling be sure to talk things over with your agent before you list your property.

Thank you David Saks for this timely post and question!

Are There Ghosts in Your Seller's Home ?


Is it necessary to disclose this to your buyer ?
With Halloween fast approaching it might not look good for you on October 31st if you close on the 29th and Casper shows up at midnight on the 30th.
In reality, I don't believe that there's any law in any state that would require your seller to disclose the fact that the seller believes that Jacob Marley lives in the attic.
Now maybe there's something that I'm missing here, but if Freddy Krueger shows up you might have to go to court for non-disclosure, if your buyer is still alive to testify.
Happy Halloween
Happy House "Haunting"
er, uh...

Very timely post for sure!  I know PA just had a disclosure ruling about people passing away in a home, but I'm not sure about haunting disclosures?

Thanks, Gloria and Doug.

Hi John Meussner , These disclosures just make sense so it does not give people a reason to come back and cause trouble with the previous owner and agent involved in the sale.

You are welcome David Saks .  Thanks for the drawing.

I've had several calls from people who claim to own haunted homes, Gloria.  They think they can get more money for the home if it's haunted!

I truly enjoyed the post and appreciate the humor you used.  A seller should disclose any and all facts pertaining to the property.  If they have documentation to prove the property is haunted, then by all means it should be disclosed.  I will have to start asking if they have skeletons in the closet!

I can't believe it's almost Halloween already. This is a good reminder though.

Hi Toni Weidman , That is a good point about houses becoming more intriguing to buyers!

Hi Anna Hatridge , Funny skeletons in the closet...

Thank you Will Nesbitt !

Hi Wanda Kubat-Nerdin , Hopefully the homeowner will come forth with this info prior to listing.

Hi Georgie Hunter , I too can't believe Halloween is almost here!  Thanks to David Saks for his post!
