    • Yes, many people live in houses especially old homes where people have died no matter how they passed on.
      This is a subject that a seller does not have to disclose when selling a home even if they know it to be true.
      Unless a potential buyer asks there is no need to disclose it.
      This subject has been discussed at many of our Realtor meetings and it is not necessary to tell a buyer unless they ask if someone has died in the home.
      Your not deceiving them as disclosure pertains more to the condition of the home.

    • Not many people are bothered by these deaths or any others in houses today.
      In the old days, people were more superstitious. I do not know about laws but I’m certain I’ve bought & have lived in homes that had seen death.
      I would still buy a home I really loved no matter what had happened there.

    • I tried to find some info. on line pertaining to UT real estate disclosure laws but I could not find anything specific to UT. I am in MA. Sorry, I should have added that to my post.
      The best advice I can give you is to contact an attorney or a Realtor and ask what the laws are for your state.

    • If I liked the house, certainly I’d buy it regardless of what happened there.
