S.O. registry even has to be made available to real estate purchases in some states
There is an interesting quirk in the way sex offender registries are handled, with Megan’s Law. In Virginia, there is a tricky rule that realtors must disclose Megan’s law information to certain home purchasers, and it leads to a lot of convoluted advice to realtors.
The law is designed to assist purchases with any concern about already stigmatized sex offenders in an area; it does no pertain to the purchasers.
