Thanks for your reply, so basically its up to me. For example if I were to holiday let the place, there would be no reason to disclose as they are there for a week tops and the expense would be no more then $5K.
If I rented it out for a year at $50K, again I would chance only the fact that the tenants may move out and break the rental agreement.
The biggie is reselling. However if I used I real estate agent who was not local and in all good faith was not aware of the history, then the chances of the new buyer suing me if they found out by the locals would be diminished.
You see I survived the Bali Bombing in 2002 and witnesed dozens of people burn to death. In fact 202 people were "murdered", so having one person murdered in a home makes the chances of another murder seem like a long shot....its also justifies my perception that disclosing this to anyone is not a big deal, as far as I am concerned...
