While searching for a new home the last 4 or 5 months, we've had the misfortune to "run into" 2 "meth houses".  Neither listing even came close to mentioning the fact that they had previously tested positive for methamphetamine contamination.  From the beginning of our due diligence on both houses, I was extremely concerned by the pricing and length of time on the market for both houses.  However, I only found out of their 'meth' involvement when I talked to neighbor of the houses we were interested in.   By law, only the actual owner of a "meth house" must disclose that fact!  Even if a real estate agent (either the buying or selling agent) knows it, they do not have to disclose it or put on a listing!  The same is true for a landlord or tenant.  Does this seem wrong to anyone else besides myself, and what can be done about this?  How many families are now living, unbeknownst to them, in a house in which 'meth' has been manufactured and/or consumed and may have grave (no pun intended) consequences to those families?
