Sounds like a bunch of hoax bs. They might be sending themsleves the letters. If previous owners received similar letters, how do these new owners know that? Never had to disclose anything similar. I guess we'll have to start writing in our contracts that " ghosts, spirits, etc are attached to property, so they all convey"

This is a little creepy and I would freak me out getting letters from a stalker.

So If I knew for sure the seller received letters from the stalker maybe they should have discussed.  But how would the sellers know the stalker would go after the buyers.  This is a very weird story.

Julia,

What a strange story, and I would have definitely disclosed providing the sellers had told me.  It is a very sad story.  A

Did a violent crime happen in the history of the neigborhood? My guess is the stalker's family /watcher lived nearby or in the house at one time.  Here is what I would do: Write a brief letter stating that "police reports were made about someone harrassing them and the location. The crime is unsolved. "

Buyer is obligated to investigate just as one might check on insurance claims at a subject property.

Some people might be attracted to the eery nature of this watcher. Make the house into some wierd attraction? 

I would love to hear the agent's in Parsippany's inside story but even if we knew who they were they wouldn't comment due to the lawsuit.

Ridiculous.  Get an alarm system, security lights and a big dog.

Sounds like there might be something more to the story. You'd think these days the homeowners could find a way to figure out if someone is  stalking them.   Why are the new owners suing for what they paid for the house in stead of trying to make them buy the house back?

But as for disclosures, it really goes to the point of  what is mandated by law to disclose and what is the intent of  New Jersy Disclosure Law.  Is peaceful enjoyment is part of thier disclosure laws? And  if this is true then sounds like the sellers did have a duty to dosclose.
