    "Death by unnatural causes"

    I see this from time to time in RE ads, I guess is to warn people who may have a cultural sensitivity. Does another know more about the problems with owning a property which has had such a thing occur?

    A question for the drafties and planners please - when putting a detached granny flat on a lot, what is the minimum separation from the existing house? I guess having windows or not, cladding etc would effect the distance but what are the basics? Thanks
