The law is pretty screwed up if you ask me. It states?

1) The site of a natural death, suicide or homicide or any other crime classified as a felony.
2) Owned or occupied by a person exposed to the human immunodeficiency virus or diagnosed as having acquired immune deficiency syndrome or any other disease that is not known to be transmitted through common occupancy of real estate.
3) Located in the vicinity of a sex offender.
Failing to disclose any fact or suspicion shall not be grounds for termination or rescission of any transaction in which real property has been or will be transferred or leased."
The law needs to change, requiring that all discovered meth labs must absolutely be disclosed to all potential buyers. Now, the house will never sell. They might as well bulldoze the property. No one in their right mind is going to purchase a house that could pose a threat to their health.
