interesting article - buyers backed out of the deal and some discussion about how this was not a required disclosure

I suppose anything that can have an infamous connotation should be disclosed. Otherwise, it may be considered false advertising.

States have different requirements of what a RE agent has to or not disclose about a property.

CALIFORNIA LAW --CCCS 1710.2 makes an exception for deaths caused by acquired immune deficiency syndrome. Federal law classifies AIDS as a disability, so disclosure of someone's death due to this cause is considered discriminatory. California law also provides that if you actually ask the seller or lessor about deaths that may have occurred on the property, the owner can't lie. The California Association of Realtors recommends that their agents come clean if questioned, no matter how long ago the death occurred. This doesn't hold true for AIDS-related deaths.
