AZ: Court rules Arizona law bars lawsuits against home sellers who don’t discuss nearby sex offenders

PHOENIX – A state appellate court says Arizona law bars lawsuits against home sellers who don’t disclose that a sex offender lives next door, but the ruling also says providing a false reason for selling is another story.

The ruling revives a fraud claim against the sellers of a Scottsdale home. The sellers had told the buyers that they were selling because they wanted to be closer to friends. However, their real reason allegedly was the sex offender next door. Full Article

    I can see the validity of disclosing known hazards to the buyer, but the fact that you don’t like the guy next door, because he is a registrant, doing nothing but minding his own business, is another matter. If this jury looks at the statistics, they will find no more of a potential hazard than anyone else in the area. Maybe the seller should also know of and disclose any robbers, arsonists, drunk drivers, drug dealers or gang members in the neighborhood to the buyer?

      This is just another example of the negative effects of the SO registry.

      And here’s allot more examples.

      Excerpt:
      Real Estate

      Real estate is not selling when potential buyers find a sex offender lives in the
      neighborhood (Hoppin, 1999). In New Jersey, it is not legal to advise prospective buyers
      that there is a registered sex offender in the neighborhood K. Singer, personal
      communication, February 2, 2000). In contrast, in Cleveland, Ohio one large real estate
      company is asking on the disclosure statement form (along with the leaky basement,
      radon, and roof questions) whether or not the sellers have ever been notified of a
      registered sex offender living in their neighborhood (Fazekas, 2000).

      In Detroit, a couple trying to sell their home had their address incorrectly included on a
      sex offender registry list. After reporting the error, the couple was informed by police
      that the police department could not remove the listing until they could track down the
      former owner of the house who bought their house three years earlier from a sex
      offender (Associated Press, 1998).

    The issue is ‘reason’ for sale….because I want too.

    That is nothin’ I had a CDC Officer From Tehachapi Prison Living next door to me & when He found Out I Lived next door the put there house up for sale. Now Iwas wondering How long before it would sell so some people looked me up & my STAR was where it was supposed to be, Then I get a call that it was moved to a vacant house 2 miles away. I Freaked & called registration & said I had been told My star is NOT where it is supposed to be. They said “Yes it IS” and guess what the house sold soon after to another family. Then My Star came back to where it was supposed to be. That is when BAD thing started happening to our animals. Now if that is not a Conspiracy and some one with pull MOVIN’ Things For a home sale I don’t Know what is & I STILL have those witnesses,,Including My New Neighbor who will testify they checked the Map before purchase and there was No STAR! Yea, I straitened everything out with them but not without loss and Much anguish first,But No one will challenge My County on such an issue it would seem. Now There is another issue I Am wondering about & supposed to make a call Friday to see if it is a valid Civil Rights Issue to be challenged In My County.
