Attorney for real estate…Halloween edition!

Attorney searching for real estate shouldn’t be haunting, but sometimes the home can be. About half of the states are caveat emptor, or “buyer beware” in Latin. In certain cases, that may mean beware of the ghosts.

One Laveta Place is a beautiful home on the Hudson River of New York that has been owned by the director and writer of romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe, singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, and reggae artist Matisyahu. It is also reported to be haunted.

In 1991, the owner at the time, Helen Ackley, was sued for not disclosing that the house was haunted when trying to sell. Ackley had even spoken of the hauntings in a Reader’s Digest article explaining ghost sightings and phantom gifts.

The court found that Ackley had deliberately concealed information that could affect the value of the house. Today, real estate sellers are often required to disclose if a house is believed to be haunted.

An attorney for real estate can help you with the ins and outs of your property, including if there are *factors potentially affecting the home’s value or the well-being of the home’s owner.* Though, this may not always be a bad thing as the house on the Hudson has historically sold for significantly more than comparable houses in the area.
