DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT WENT ON IN YOUR HOME BEFORE YOU MOVED IN?
FACT: THERE IS NO DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENT OF PRIOR METH RELATED ACTIVITY IN A PROPERTY. You can ask the seller, the real estate agent, even the tenants. None of them are required to disclose meth related activities transacted on the premises.
Some states require mandatory disclosure only if a drug lab was discovered by law enforcement. The fact is, by police estimates, only 10% of all labs are ever discovered. This does not include smoking methamphetamines, which can leave behind high levels of pollution that can sicken unsuspecting residents.
Over 300 different chemicals can be used to make methamphetamines, including drain cleaner, batteries, and kerosene. THERE IS NO NATIONAL STANDARDS OR LAWS REQUIRING CLEAN-UP OF ANY DRUG CONTAMINATED PROPERTY.
FACT: No one will look out for you more than you.
