Most state law requires sellers to disclose defects such as “small leak”, but not death.
Chapin, SC (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
On May 31, 2013, Simply Put Solutions, Inc., a software development company, released the first of its kind, web-based application called Died in House ™ found at http://www.diedinhouse.com. Using a valid U.S. address, Died in House ™ instantly searches millions of records to determine if a death has occurred at that location. Because the address of death is not always documented, a Died in House ™ Report will also contain the names that are associated to the address and the vitality status of each name. The additional information saves customer’s time and money by reducing the amount of effort it would normally take to research the address history manually.
How would you know if someone has died in a house? Well if it is a new home then the answer is obvious, but how about in a used home? Most state law requires sellers to disclose defects such as “small leak,” but not death. There are a few states that require death disclosure, but only if the buyer asks and the seller knows. California is one of the few states that currently have a law that requires the disclosure of a death that has occurred within three years prior to the sale of the property.
Died in House ™ does not guarantee to have all deaths that have occurred in or at a specific address. Currently it searches over 118 million records from various sources and that number continues to increase daily. DiedinHouse.com is merely a great tool to use to assist you with finding out if someone has died at a specific address. It is always recommended that before anyone purchases or rents a used home, to run a Died in House ™ Report, ask the seller if they are aware of any deaths, speak with neighbors, search the address online and check government records for any information related to the property.
The application contains data for all 50 states and it is updated daily. The company is in the process of adding additional products, making the service available for mobile platforms and making the Died in House ™ service available in other countries.
