Where do you want to insert it? I know how to do it in Word but it's too complicated to explain here. So, why don't you just Google or Bing your question.

Some states, like MN, have specific disclosures that are required surrounding deaths in a property. I would recommend that you ask the question of an agent in your state and see if any similar rules exist where you live.

As far as finding people who used to live in your house - you might try looking through your abstract. The owners of the property will be listed there. Failing that your county might have some records you can look into.

Good Luck.

First it depends on your contract. If you have a Residential Standard Contract. You can back out of the contract with earnest money to be returned to you. (look under Remedies Paragraph 13) You may also make the title escrow money and hold money out of the sellers funds to pay for those items and any issue that you may run into. It all depends what you have in writing. Paragraph 7 states that the Seller agrees to provide to Buyer at Closing a certification from Laclede Gas, not dated more than 30 days til closing. Paragraph 9 states that the seller shall pay for(where applicable municipal, conservation district and fire district inspection fees. I would be talking to your agent about this issue. Do not close until the issue is resolved either in escrow or the items are completed. If you need anymore help Vince, give me a call at 314-280-9996.

You will have to hire a lawyer and take them to court to get a judgement against them for rent payment. They probably won't show up to court and if they don't, the judge will allow you to evict them. Usually the judge gives about 30 days or so for the tenants to get out. Then after that time is up, if they are still not out, you can contact the sherrif's office and an officer will actually come and put them and their belongings out on the street.

So your first step is to hire a lawyer and he or she will help you get your rent or at least get them evicted.

Start with the Covenants and Restrictions that govern your Townhome. You need to make sure that you can lease it. If you find out leases are okay, then talking to an attorney would not be a bad idea. An attorney can help you with your rental agreement. You can also use a leasing company that will assist with backround checks on potential tenants. Do your homework! Basic rental agreements are available through most office supply stores. ... more

One good way that I get the word out to all agents in my area is by using "Service Your Listing" flyers. Go to their website to fill in all information at It costs about $25, but it goes by e-mail to all agents in your target areas. Good luck! ... more

Hi JB,
We didn't take them away--they're still there:

If you do a search from our home page, you'll get to a property search results page. In the navigation at the top, point your mouse to "Stats and Trends" and you'll see a drop-down menu with the heat map link.

I hope this helps.

Elizabeth Gilbert answered:
You may be able to find sold information in the county records. Go to and type in the county name and "assessor". You should be prepared with a list of addresses that surround the home you want to buy. If the information is posted on the county website, there is usually no way to do a search based on how many bedrooms and bathrooms a home has nor on what homes sold for. Your local Realtor is your best bet and would have the most reliable information. Just like an appraiser, a Realtor needs to get paid for their knowledge. Realtors pay dues for access to the information your are looking for, so perhaps you can hire a Realtor based on a flat fee or a per hour rate? Your appraiser should have the same or similar access to homes that have sold, so why are you personally having to find the comparables? ... more

It's all a matter of time and money. Trulia and other similar sites start with the locations that will be most advantageous to their overall goal. Also, some counties make it easy by having their data available online and other counties only allow data information if you go in person and show photo id.

Try searching Google with your county and Recorder of Deeds or Tax Assessor to see if you can gather the information you need that way.

Good luck,
