    We're looking at properties at the moment and I think as a buyer, I would find the most tasteful way would be a short note on the flyer that gets handed out at inspections. Otherwise it would be hard working it in to conversation! "The large living room is through there, beautiful open plan kitchen and someone was murdered here. Would you like to take a look upstairs?". Awkward.

    And yes, if it was a bargain I would buy it as an investment, but would probably think twice before living there.

    Yep this. I don't even like that strangers have walked on our carpet (previous owners), so couldn't stand the thought that someone had been killed in my home.

    While I cracked up at option 2, I think this the flyer thing is a good idea. Although...would people be annoyed at having their time wasted if they didn't find out until they inspected? Could you put something on the website description?

    Not to live in. I don't believe in anything supernatural/afterlife/whatever but I wouldn't want to associate such a sad thing with my home.

    Yeah I thought that but honestly just don't know how we would word it? We were thinking if a buyer requested a contract or showed interest or wanted a re inspect we would just say " we just have to bring to your attention that a murder did occur in the home 20 years ago " we thought its best not to "publicise " it as such on a brochure as we don't want sticky beak locals or worse coming through? I personally think it should be stated in the contract but unfortunately the solicitors won't as it does not fall under their legislation but ours

    What is the property like? If it is a good buy, then perhaps just after they have an inspection if they show keen interest. Do buyers have to register with you prior to auction day?

    Perhaps as a disclaimer at the bottom of the flyer - that could work.

    They have to register on the day - legally as long as they are told prior to offering/signing it's ok but I thought it's best to tell them before they start spending money on searches/solicitors so if they show interest or request a contract
    It's actually a really great house and would sell really well ( under normal circumstances)
