What is your due diligence in regards to Sex Offenders?

How far should you go?

 

Scenario #1: You are under a listing agreement with Client A. After listing the property you become aware of a sex offender living in the home next door. 

 

ABC Agency calls wanting to show your listing, do you make the agent aware of the sex offender living next door so that they can tell there client or do you trust that they have done there job and given there client the required  Sex Offender Registry disclosure to verify the information themselves? 

 

What if a customer calls you direct about the same listing, do you handle it the same way?

 

Scenario #2: You have entered into a Buyer Agency agreement with Client A and have provided the required discolsure in reference to the Sex Offender Registry that directs them to the local sex offender website for more information. Client A wishes to view a property that you know has a sex offender residing next door.  Do you share this information with your client or have you already done your due diligence by providing the sex offender disclosure?
