So the general rule is that a death within three years of the offer should be disclosed, and that any known death should be disclosed upon specific inquiry by the buyer.
There are a few clarifications that may apply: (a) A "notorious" death such as a murder, or infamous murder, may be an exception. For instance, a buyer's attorney might argue that the notoriety and its effect on the property create separate issues from the death itself; (b) Some cultures often are concerned with death on a property, particularly depending on the age of the decedent and circumstances. In these circumstances, the issue is likely to arise at some stage and disclosure may prevent a late cancellation or other problems; and (c) Many brokers and agents may feel that a death should be disclosed regardless of time or circumstances. If a death has occurred, the issue can be discussed with your agent as to what course seems appropriate.

Your standard answer will be yes if in the last three years by law. Now outside of that time period if the person in the home died by murder then probably you know the neighbors will be the first to tell the new owners So disclosure is always better.
