Legally Haunted House: Stambovsky v. Ackley

Spread the love

“As a matter of law, the house is haunted,” declared the New York Supreme Court majority opinion in Stambovsky v. Ackley and Ellis Real Estate. It was a shocking end to a contentious case after a young family demanded their down payment back, refusing to move into a house they discovered was inhabited by ghosts. The decision still draws attention to this day for its implications for New York home sellers.
