So you’re pretty sure your house is haunted and you want to move. That’s very understandable. Now, you may be wondering if you need to tell potential buyers that your house is haunted. Legally speaking, it’s a bit of a grey area.

If you have publically stated that your house is haunted, you can’t turn around and say it isn’t when you try and sell it. If you do, the buyer may be able to sue you.


If your house is haunted, it may be a selling point. Often people enjoy houses and hotels that are reported to have ghosts. Just make sure those flickering lights are ghosts and not electrical problems!

Ghosts may be a grey area, but deaths are another matter. Depending on the state you’re selling in, you may be required to disclose deaths on your property. Alaska, California, and South Dakota all have laws requiring disclosure of deaths under certain circumstances. Other states, like Arizona and Indiana, don’t require the seller to disclose whether the property is stigmatized.


When in doubt, as your real estate agent. Your agent will be able to tell you all the rules about what you do and don’t need to disclose when selling your house.
