The sellers had purchased their home for $450,000 from the estate of a couple who died in a murder/suicide. The murder/suicide was highly publicized. One year later, after investing in many renovations, the sellers listed their house for sale, informing their realtor and consulting with an attorney and the Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission regarding the tragic history of the home. The sellers relied on the advice of counsel and the Commission and did not disclose the murder/suicide as a material defect on their Seller’s Property Disclosure Statement. A California resident purchased the home from the sellers for $610,000. She did not learn of the murder/suicide until after she had moved into the home. She filed an action against the sellers and their realtor, asserting that she never would have purchased the home had she known its history. The trial court granted summary judgment for the defendants, ruling that murder/suicide was not a material defect subject to disclosure. An en banc panel of the Superior Court affirmed, finding that psychological damage to a property cannot be considered a material defect. On appeal, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed. The court ruled that the murder/suicide events were not defects in the “structure” of the house. The sellers’ disclosure duties were designed to address structural defects, not tragic events. The court reasoned that a requirement that such events be disclosed would be impossible to apply with consistency and would place an unmanageable burden on sellers. Milliken v.
