There was a news story recently about a woman who bought a foreclosure and it turned out to be a crack house. When home owners list their homes they are required to use a sellers disclosure and disclose that the house has been used to make meth amphetamine. I am not making that up.
In most cases with bank owned properties there is a non-disclosure because the bank doesn’t know anything about the property so they provide a document that says we don’t know what if anything is wrong with the property but what ever it is if anything it isn’t our fault and if you buy the home you buy it “as is”.
In general I seriously doubt if anyone is going to state that they have made meth amphetamine in their home. It is after all against the law and banks do not provide information about the property because they don’t have information and lets face it they really don’t care they just want the home sold and they don’t want to get sued.
Please have a home inspection and talk to neighbors if possible. Go to the local police department and check for police calls to the home. Former meth labs can be cleaned up. The EPA has some guidelines.
