Good fences make good neighbours

Law Day

Last week, I blogged about whether you have to disclose a crime that once occurred in your home. Today’s question: do you have to disclose the neighbours?

Generally speaking, as long as you aren’t asked, you don’t have to disclose anything about the neighbourhood. You can’t lie and say that the neighbours have no dogs, but you don’t have to volunteer information about the very noisy one who likes to bark right under your bedroom window. And if you move into a nuisance situation, you likely have very little recourse against the prior owners.
