Did you know .... a seller of a home in the Okanagan Shuswap must disclose "forever" whether their house house was a grow-op?

It's hard to believe. If the problem has been fixed why does the seller have to disclose it?  Many lawyers have stated that if the problem has been fixed it does not have to be disclosed. That's correct from a legal perspective.  However, every house listed under the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board has to have a disclosure statement filled in with the listing. This is a 3 page form that asks the seller various questions about their house.  It is a requirrment of the govening board of the Okanagan, Shuswap Real Estate market.   In that disclosure statement it specifically asks the seller the following question, "Are you aware if the premises have been used as a marijuana grow operation or used to manufacture illegal drugs?" Therefore, if the seller knows that the house has been used as a grow-op they have to disclose it forever, even if it has been completely remediated. Things that make you go hhhmmmmm.
