New Disclosure Law targets former Meth-labs

Sellers will have to tell buyers if a building or home has been the site of a methamphetamine lab under a new law.

The bill to create the disclosure law passed the house and senate unanimously and Governor Henry let it become law by failing to act on it within the set five days.

Henry says he supports the bill that would allow a buyer to sue a seller for repairs up to two years later after buying the property if damages surface.

The law takes effect November first.

Fumes and residue from chemicals used to make methamphetamine can seep into walls and floors and make a building uninhabitable.
