Michigan Realtors® Relief Fund – Helping Friends in Flint

The Michigan Realtors® Relief Fund® (“MRRF”) was established to support and expedite the receipt and donation of charitable aid from Michigan Realtors® and supporting organizations in response to the water crisis in the City of Flint. While the genesis of the MRRF was specific to providing relief in the City of Flint, the MRRF is intended to be ongoing as a 501(c)(3) organization established to provide housing-related assistance to victims of disasters and for other charitable purposes permitted under the Internal Revenue Code. All donations made to the fund for the period beginning January 28, 2016 through April 30, 2016, will be designated to support the City of Flint and the East Central Association of Realtors® during the Flint Water Crisis.

Legal Lines – Question of the Month

With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.

QUESTION:
I currently have a property listed by the heirs of a man who died in his house as a result of a spider bite from a brown recluse spider.  Does my seller have to disclose this information?          

ANSWER:
Unless a prospective buyer asks if someone died in the home, you do not have to disclose this information.  However, if there is a history of infestation in the home, the seller must disclose that in the seller’s disclosure statement.
