What happens if you rent your home and tenant sets up meth lab? Is there any way to avoid this suituation? Do you have any recourse if this happens? Will your insurance cover this situation? Can you require tenants to have insurance coverage for this scenario?
In CA when you are selling property, you have to disclose if it had a meth lab in it. This is a recent law, introduced maybe 2-3 years ago. Title company probably has to do their due diligence when they research title. I do not know if you have to disclose same information to your tenants.
I believe death should be disclosed to buyers if it happened in the last 2 years, not sure if it has to be disclosed to tenants.
interestingly - if you cross check this DEA list with redfin, it will not list neither death nor past meth lab on their listing. For example this house in Belmont had meth lab in 2006 according to this DEA site:
Death? That’s a common thing, we all die one day. Murder or any other crime is something you kind of could be worried about. For that, I believe you can go to the police department and ask them to run a check on a certain address. I was going to do it for the house that gave us many headaches in our hood, but I decided it wasn’t worth my time nor money.
I will be checking police reports before purchase from now on…In my apartment building in Tahoe one tenant had several noise police reports filed against him… .I used those reports to evict him…Made my building more attractive and valuable. .Of course the seller never mentioned the police reports…
Why do you think I asked this question here? Precisely because I couldn’t find an online resources except the paid website I mentioned above. If you know of an online resources for this research, do share.
