CONDUCTING YOUR DUE DILIGENCE
Buying a home is one of the most crucial decisions you will make. You will have to get appraisals, home inspections, surveys, insurance and so on, all in the interest of protecting your investment. Don't forget to also get your home tested for previous drug labs, processing and usage! Toxic chemicals from illicit street drugs can make your family sick and your wallet cringe with cleanup costs starting at about $10,000.00. In the United States only 1 in 10 drug labs are ever discovered leaving future buyers at risk. Don't judge a book by its cover! Often times drug dealers and producers use homes in suburban and higher end areas to avoid suspicion of illegal activity. More than 50% of states have no disclosure laws regarding these types of hazardous conditions.
