Most states require a seller or landlord to disclose a death in the home. Absent of there being an undisclosed death, the tenant doesn't have a leg to stand on. Usually, small claims court will order the tenant to forfeit the deposit and pay for any unrented time in the home. However, if the tenant can prove that there was an undisclosed death in the home prior to their renting it, you may be liable for a full refund of all rents, deposits and moving expenses.
