namegoeshere: Carousel Beast: namegoeshere: So you're buying a foreclosed home in a high meth area, and you don't get an inspection, environmental survey, and detailed history?

Then you deserve everything you get, you penny wise, pound foolish people.

Depends. What are the disclosure laws like in Oregon? In most Southern states the seller is required to disclose damn near everything of public significance to ever occur at a property. Failure to do so means the sale can be nullified by the buyer.

There's always the "I didn't know" excuse with the disclosure laws. Especially when it's not being sold by the occupant. This may not ever have been known to be a meth house. There would be nothing to disclose.

What it comes down to is, if you can't afford an inspection and a $50 test kit, you can't afford to buy that house.


Oregonian here. And I know someone who work's for the state's Clandestine Drug Lab Program (which is one person, for the entire state).

The legislature tried to pass a law requiring disclosure of drug lab activity if a house changes hands. Basically, if a residential meth/DMT lab is busted, that goes on the deed.

Guess who lobbied against and ultimately defeated that bill? The real estate lobby.

Fast forward a few years after the meth lab epidemic - before sudoephedrine was made prescription only, drug lab busts averaged one per day (and that's only the ones we knew about). There's a few thousand homes in this state that were known former labs.

Real estate agents are discovering they're getting sued for selling former meth labs to unsuspecting people.

Guess who's complaining to the state that there's no uniform disclosure process for former meth labs? Real estate agents.

Chabash: I'd challenge anyone to find a home in Klamath Falls that wasn't a meth lab at some point.


I'd be more worried about the geckos.

farking fire and golden geckos can kill the SHIAT out of you early on, if you're not careful...

You see the address? Radcliffe right across from Fred Meyer. I'm surprised there's a house in that area that isn't still a meth lab.

So... buying a house that used to be a meth lab isn't ironic enough for you?

Farking hipsters.

What kind of test kit do you buy to detect that your house used to be a meth lab?

Felgraf: insertsnarkyusername: Nah, just put some points into melee and spear them in the eyes. The can't attack what they can't see. Besides there is nothing but that one shot pipe gun in the area.

Well, you could tag Speech and do a Navarro run.


True, but that always felt like I was taking advantage of the game to me. And I so enjoyed slaughtering everything on that base.

Take along a drug sniffing dog when house shopping. And stay away from any Realtor™ who's missing lots of teeth or much of a nose.
