Methamphetamine and Real Estate Several years ago we discovered that methamphetamine had been smoked in a home one of our clients had under contract. The house was immaculate, but the testing and cleanup costs were over $35,000. This was the result of the previous owner’s son smoking a few times with his friends. Had there been someone living in the house at the time, they could have lost all of their personal property as well (as it is all considered contaminated). Following this experience, we began recommending meth screening tests to each client and paying 1/2 of their $375 cost.
