Ian Watt: Hi, Good afternoon! It's Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver.
We don't technically have to disclose this on a Property Disclosure
Statement. That somebody died in the apartment but to tell you the
truth. If I will buy that apartment I would like to know, the reason
why I asked that (my dog here). The reason why I asked that is because
a building manager call me because someone was murdered in the suite
the other day and he wanted to know if they had to disclose it and
technically there is no place on the Property Disclosure Statement to
disclose it. However, I will definitely like to know and I don't know
what the court would feel if you didn't disclose that someone was
murdered in there because you know what it might not make a difference
to you but it might make a difference to the re-sale and if they ever
do add that to the Property Disclosure Statement. It's definitely going
to affect the pricing. My name is Ian Watt. If you have any questions.
You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much and have a great day!
