Death In The Home Need Not Be Disclosed /2015/01/death-in-the-home-need-not-be-disclosed/

The father died in the home. The son, as the personal representative, is selling the home.

Does the son or the agent have a legal obligation to disclose that the father died in the home?


Pursuant to A.R.S. § 32-2156, sellers and their agents are not obligated to disclose that the property was the site of a natural death. However, the seller and the agent cannot make a misrepresentation if asked whether there has been a death on the property. They must answer truthfully or respond that they are not legally required to answer the question.
