Do BC homesellers need to disclose that their house is haunted? Realtor Tony Browton


When selling a haunted house, are sellers
in BC required to disclose the alleged spiritual infestation? According the Real Estate Council of British
Columbia’s website, when buyers and sellers are each represented by their own agent, the
seller has no obligation at law to disclose a “stigma” that affects the property. Examples
of these stigmas include a death in the property, that the property was robbed or vandalized,
or that the house is claimed to be haunted. If the seller is asked specifically about
otherworldly roommates, the RECBC’s Professional Standards Manual states sellers can answer
the question directly or decline to answer and instruct the buyer to conduct his or her
own investigation. As with all real estate related matters, don’t
be a pumpkin head and talk to an industry professional like a Realtor or a lawyer when
you have questions. Getting expert advice could save you from a real-life horror show.
