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.
