    Would you knowingly rent or reside in an apartment or home if you new a murder-suicide took place?

    Would you knowingly buy a house that murder and or suicide took place in? Would you rent an apartment knowing that the previous renter was murdered and or committed suicide in the apartment? I know this may seem like a strange question but a murder suicide took place in my apartment building a few months ago and I noticed that they already rented out the apartment. I wonder if the new renter knows? I wonder if the landlord has to disclose that type of information? I liked to hear what you all think.

    I think for the right price I would buy a place that had something like that happen in it. As for the landlord requirements most states have a only tell if they ask rule. If no one asks no one is required to tell them.

      On that note I better start asking more questions when I look at apartments

    The fact that someone died in a place before I bought or rented that place wouldn't bother me.  People die.  The only thing that would bother me is if the person was murdered by an invader.  I would be concerned about my safety.

      Thanks for sharing. I totally agree the circumstances of the death are much more important than the fact that a death occurred.
