Foxnews.com article on the horror of living in former meth labs: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/06/27/meth-rehab-former-labs-nightmare-for-unwitting-homebuyers

 

The house will kill you and your kids slowly.... 

 

This particular meth lab in SJ has been on the market for 150 days. Does CA require meth disclosure?

Ridiculous.  I'd bet that the agents selling know its history.   

 

The house will have to be gutted to be safe to live in.

PS:  Be aware that in many cases scrubbing will not get rid of the chemicals.  Because it seeps into the walls, the house has to be gutted.  However, once a home has been scrubbed, it can often be taken off of the meth-lab lists by law.

It's hard to come up with a down payment when you've spent it all on drugs.

Smart manufacturers don't use, they just produce and sell.

Now is the time to buy this small ranch  lab in the prestigious Evergreen Hills area. New entrance bridge makes a statement, don't try to jump from it when under the influence. Perfect for the horse-lover (tack room, barn and fencing) or person interested in exploring the possibility of subdivision  an explosion. Lots of extras including BBQ area, dog run/kennel, covered patio and a hot tub, don't worry, methamphetamine's salts included.
