Normal way to get this information is to review the seller's disclosures forms completed by the seller and reviewed by the listing agent. California law requires the seller to disclose any known deaths in the property within the previous three years of the date of current sale. However, its always better to also ask the specific question. You should ask your agent to solicit that information from the listing agent and the seller, using email can also works very well. By asking the specific question, it increases your chances of getting the information from the seller, in the event the seller forgot to put in the disclosure forms. Hope that helps.

A title search would bring up that fact whether or no someone wants to sweep it under the carpet. They have to disclose by law any deaths, natural or otherwise that happen in a home for sale.

In California, a seller must disclose if someone has physcically died ON THE PROPERTY in the past three years. They must also disclose going much further back if the death was notorious. For example, if someone famous died on the property, or if there were news reports about the death (ie: foul play). As with all disclosures in California, if a seller wonders if they should disclose something about the property... just disclose it. A seller doesn't want the buyer to find out about some horrible crime in the house from a neighbor, or from the lookie-loos that invariably swarm around notorious places, and lack of disclosure of known material facts can come back to haunt sellers in the form of lawsuits Other states may have other rules. Ask a local REALTOR, they will be able to answer your specific questions.
