You’ve found the perfect home. It has an extra bedroom, there’s an apple tree in the back, the school is close . there’s only one problem. There used to be a Methamphetamine (Meth) lab in the basement.
Like other Midwestern states, Minnesota is seeing an increase of Meth use. Twenty percent of Meth used in Minnesota is made in Minnesota – and sometimes manufactured in otherwise desirable neighborhoods. It is becoming a rising concern for home buyers. Contamination left behind from a Meth lab can be harmful to your health. The Minnesota Department of Health encourages homeowners to use hazardous materials contractors for clean up.
In fact, the State has created a site on Methamphetamine for the general public, including the house buying public.
