Does a seller have to disclose information to a buyer what things have happened to their property, pets or themselves?

Asked over 1 year ago - Hammondsport, NY

We are trying to sell our home and our neighbor has a police record and prior restraining orders against them due to being arrested for stalking. This neighbor has also placed herbicides on our property multiple times whereas our pets have become very ill from this. Our home has been hit with ice, rocks and sticks as well as had things stolen and vandalized. We have spoken to other neighbors who have been harassed by this neighbor as we are not the only ones he has victimized.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Your realtor or attorney should be able to answer this question, but it is my understanding (and I do not practice law in NY) that you are only required to give a buyer a Property Condition Disclosure Statement:

    If we do not have a signed fee agreement I am not your attorney and this is not legal advice.
