Hoping to buy a new home to make a better life for your family? In America, all things are possible, they say. If you work hard and get a good education you can live the American dream. But, what happens when your dream home turns out to be a former meth lab? Oh, I know what you’re thinking, “why on earth would I ever buy a home that was used as a meth lab?” Because, you may never be told that your dream home was used as a meth lab by its former owner.
If you’re thinking that the law requires that information be revealed to you before you buy a new home, think again. And if you buy your dream home and find out later that it was used as a meth lab, guess who has to pay to get it decontaminated? You do. When it comes to buying a new home, buyer beware.
