That's wonderful! So happy for the family. It's not fair they should have to suffer because of the history. I think the new people are cray cray but hey!

OK. Reviving this thread because we may have the opportunity to be the buyer in a similar situation.
An empty house that has so much potential. So so much potential but... The elderly owner died of natural causes in it. The agent told dp but not me because i had the kids hanging off me so I didn't find out until we got home. The house smells (was going to joke that it smelled like someone had died there but i didn't). The room she died in had the carpet replaced. Bugs and mouse poo were everywhere. All rooms except the main are tiny. The catch is we have to rent out the house we are living in and move into that house. Don't know if I can do it.

Just go for it!
I often think, with the amount of rentals we've lived in, that at some point we must have been in a house where someone has died in it before.
It's just that the agents aren't obliged to tell us.
I suspect the house we are in now was belonging to an elderly person just before we got here. Quick clean up and a lick of paint and on the market for lease.

If you think about it a lot of older homes have probably had people pass away in them, we just don't know about it , it sounds like it needs a whole new re vamp anyway so once that's done it will lose that "feeling" - if the house is in a great location and otherwise ok then I'd go for it!

I'd go on gut feeling. If the house felt creepy before you knew about the dead person, then I wouldn't do it. But if you didn't get a creepy vibe from it, then go for it.
We live in a 100yo house and the original owner died of natural causes in the house. But I've always felt comfortable here.
