Honestly though, who cares if someone has died there. It's not like they're going to haunt you or some shit.
But it's okay though, because people usually demolish newly purchased homes in Japan and rebuild them.
Do you have a source for this?
I've heard the complete opposite several times.
Except it's specifically illegal. And what does your shitty real estate link have to do with the title?
Edit: [Under the Real Estate Transaction Law, the real estate license-holder has a **legal obligation to inform the tenant or buyer of any natural or unnatural deaths that occurred in the property**. The details of the accident must also be explained in the “Important Details and Particulars” document that is signed at the time of contract.](http://japanpropertycentral.com/real-estate-faq/what-is-a-jiko-bukken-property/
I came here to note that most homes in Japan are considered "disposable" in the sense that when a home is sold, its sold for the land. Usually the home is torn down completely and a new one is built for the new owners. This is not always the case, but is often the case.
Well...where are people supposed to die?
In countries you aren't even legally obligated inform potential buyers of the deaths
well in a lot of cases real estate people dont know that stuff anyway. luckily there are websites in japan so you can see the locations of all the local murders deaths, using a nice google map feature.
They did tell my friend about the death in an apartment.
Rent was halved for the first year. Sweet deal if you ask me.
"This house was owned by a young, hip couple in thier 80s. The wife moved into a loft in a big city, and the husband joined her 4 years later. Isn't that sweet?"
Now this belongs in mildyinteresting. Unlike all that reasonably interesting stuff in there.
